Launched on 4 October 1997, TV2 (TV Kettő in Hungarian) is the flagship channel of TV2 Csoport and one of the two most-watched television channels in Hungary, the other being RTL Klub, which was launched only three days later.
The channel and its sister channels at the time (SuperTV2, FEM3 and PRO4) was owned by the German media group ProSiebenSat.1 Media until 2014, when they were sold; their biggest rival, RTL Magyarország, is owned by another German company, Bertelsmann.
