2nd Avenue (formerly ETC 2nd Avenue) is a television network in the Philippines owned by Solar Entertainment Corporation, and broadcasts on free-to-air television under a blocktime agreement with Rajah Broadcasting Network via flagship station DZRJ-TV Channel 29.
2nd Avenue broadcasts through Solar's master control, studios and offices located at the Solar Media Center, Third Floor Worldwide Corporate Center, Shaw Boulevard corner Epifanio de los Santos Avenue in Mandaluyong City, with RJTV-produced programs produced at RJTV's Venture's I Building in Makati City. RJTV holds free TV transmissions from their tower located at Brgy. San Roque, Circumferential Road, Antipolo City, province of Rizal. It operates daily from 6 AM to 1 AM on free television, while operating 24 hours on cable, satellite and internet video-on-demand services.
Initially launched as a spin-off channel to ETC, ETC 2nd Avenue started as a test broadcast on December 15, 2005, and had its full launch in 2006. The channel was later renamed to 2nd Avenue on January 17, 2007.
In 2008, as part of its parent company's blocktime agreements with multiple terrestrial channels, 2nd Avenue made its debut on RJTV stations nationwide. RJTV's RJ Sunday Jam and Thank God, It's RJ were retained and integrated to 2nd Avenue's programming.
