Talentvision 2 HD (Traditional Chinese/Simplified Chinese: 城市2高清台, Pinyin: chéngshì èr gāoqīng tái) was a Canadian Mandarin Chinese Category B specialty channel. It was owned by the Vancouver-based Fairchild Media Group (a subsidiary of the Fairchild Group) and Television Broadcasts Limited. The station broadcast exclusively in high definition.

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

Talentvision 2 HD sources its programming from Mainland China as well as Taiwan and 80% of the content will be different from the standard definition service Talentvision.

The channel launched on May 23, 2013 on Bell Fibe TV in high definition. It launched on Rogers Cable on July 4, 2013 and on Optik TV on October 8, 2013. In June 2016, the channel was removed from Optik TV. In July 2016, the channel was dropped by the remaining providers who carried it, Bell Fibe TV and Rogers Cable and subsequently shut down.
