HistoryEdit

 
Tamil News Title.

TV2, then Rangkaian Kedua (Second Network) began operations on 17 November 1969, when Televisyen Malaysia (currently known as TV1) bifurcated into two channels and merge with Radio Malaysia to become the present-day broadcasting department. Then, TV1 was known as Rangkaian Pertama (First Network).

Like TV1, TV2 started broadcasting in colour since December 1978 in Peninsular Malaysia and 1980 in Sabah and Sarawak just in time for Independence Day (Malay: Hari Merdeka).[1] During its early years, it only broadcast in the evenings, with daytime broadcasts for schools under the TV Pendidikan banner from 1972 until 1999 when daytime transmission was introduced on the channel. From 1978, the channel switches its name between RTM2 and TV2 like its sister channel TV1 before finally settled for TV2 in 2009.

Since 3 April 2006, the channel began to broadcast 24 hours a day to offer more programmes for viewers who stay up late to watch television. Its sister channel, TV1 followed suit more than 6 years later on 21 August 2012. On 1 April 2019, TV2 has started its HDTV broadcasting in conjunction of RTM's 73rd anniversary, and available exclusively through myFreeview DTT service on channel 102.
