TV 2 is the largest commercial television broadcaster in Norway. Its headquarters are located in Bergen. TV 2 began broadcasting 5 September 1992. In 1992, TV 2 A/S was admitted as full active member of the European Broadcasting Union. As is common with television (and cinema) in Norway, most foreign-language shows are subtitled in Norwegian, not dubbed (with a notable exception being children's programmes). Since 2012, TV 2 is owned by one of its co-founders, the Copenhagen-based Scandinavian media company Egmont Group.


TV 2 started broadcasting in high-definition on June 25, 2009. Initially, the channel was only available on the terrestrial RiksTV platform. The first programme broadcast in HD was Allsang på grensen. Other broadcasts in HD during 2009 include Tour de France, Friday and Saturday movies, Sunday night football, Jakten på kjærligheten, Skal vi danse and American series such as Grey's Anatomy, Cleaners, Scrubs, Brothers & Sisters, Modern Family and Criminal Minds. TV2 also produces original programming, including the award-winning show Gylne tider.

TV 2 HD is transmitted in 720p50.
