RSI La 2 is a Swiss public television channel owned by Radiotelevisione Svizzera di lingua Italiana. It's a sister channel of RSI La 1, broadcast in Italian. It mainly transmits sport programmes, but also reruns and music programmes. It does not broadcast any newscast.
TSI launched its second channel in 1997, basing it on programming for a younger audience and sports. Unlike RSI La 1, RSI La 2 is not broadcast in the whole Switzerland, but only in the Italian-speaking Switzerland.
The channel interrupted analogue broadcasts on 24 July 2006, from that date being available only on digital terrestrial television, satellite and cable. It was the first channel of the SRG SSR network to make the transition.
