YLE TV2 is a Finnish television channel owned and operated by Finnish public broadcaster YLE. It was the second television channel to see the light in Finland, with its launch taking place on March 7, 1965 under the name TV-ohjelma 2. That name would last until 1971, when its named was changed to YLE TV2. It has frequently been categorized as Finland’s second most-watched channel in the country behind its sister channel YLE TV1.
Over the years, YLE TV2 has been known as a general entertainment channel, with news broadcasts, entertainment shows, reality shows, musical broadcasts, documentaries, sports broadcasts, and more being included in its programming. Sports broadcasts have frequently given the channel some of the highest ratings in its history.
Speaking about sports, YLE TV2 has included live broadcasts for disciplines such as football, golf, ice hockey, badminton, basketball, Olympic sports, futsal, handball, and more. Domestic competitions have frequently been available on this platform, but international tournaments have also been streamed on this service. When it comes to football, games for the Finnish National Teams have been the core of YLE TV2’s coverage.
YLE TV2 was launched as a Standard Definition channel, but a High-Definition feed was developed to mirror the content aired by the SD channel. That feed would see the light on January 28, 2014, giving users a chance to choose the feed that suits their needs, as both feeds may still be available in most regions of the country.
