Fairchild TV 2 HD or FTV2HD (Traditional Chinese: 新時代2高清台, Simplified Chinese: 新时代2高清台, Pinyin: xinshídài èr gāoqīng tái), is a Canadian Cantonese language exempt Category B specialty channel. It is co-owned by majority owner Fairchild Media Group (a subsidiary of the Fairchild Group) and Television Broadcasts Limited which owns 20% of the business. Fairchild TV 2 HD has studios in Metro Vancouver Regional District (inside Aberdeen Centre in Richmond, British Columbia) and the Greater Toronto Area (Richmond Hill, Ontario). The station broadcasts exclusively in high definition.

History[edit]

In February 2013, Fairchild Media Group received permission from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch Fairchild TV 2 HD.[1]

On January 30, 2019, the CRTC approved Fairchild TV Ltd's request to convert Fairchild TV 2 from a licensed Category B specialty service to an exempted Cat. B third language service.[2]

Programs[edit]

Fairchild TV 2 HD broadcasts local Canadian and overseas programming in the Cantonese language. It also serves as an overseas station of Hong Kong television station TVB. Unlike its sister station Fairchild TV, TVB programmes on Fairchild TV 2 HD are not delayed by up to a year and are broadcast a few days after it airs in Hong Kong.
