Wiki TV 2 is an Engarian free-to-air TV channel that is owned by Wiki TV Studios. Launched on July 13th, 1968, the channel is known for airing reruns of shows that previously aired on Wiki TV, but the channel is also known for airing original shows like the Engarian Love Island, Celebrity Juice Engary, and others.

History

Since 1950, Wiki TV (known as Engarian Radio-Television at the time) was the sole provider of television in Engary. The engarian national assembly has later voted to create Engarian Radio Television 2 in a bid to end the monopoly. The channel later began experimental broadcasts on June 17th, 1968, and later launched officially on July 13th of that same year.

In 1976, Engarian Radio Television 2 was renamed to ERTV 2 and later changed its logo as a result. In that same year, ERTV 2 began airing repeats of Secrets in Potterville City.

On July 13th, 1993, ERTV 2 celebrated 25 years since the channel was launched. Because of this, the channel aired a television special, titled ERTV 2's 25th Anniversary. In the end, the new ERTV 2 logo made it's debut when the stars of the channel are gathered on the stage to introduce the new logo. American television network NBC did this in a similar way when the new logo for the network was introduced.

In 1997, ERTV 2 shifted to youth oriented channel when it received a new logo for the channel. The channel has also acquired many television series from the united states, including Beverly Hills, 90210, among others.

In August 1998, Wiki TV has confirmed that ERTV 2 will be renamed to Wiki TV 2 in a bid to blend in with the Wiki TV branding. The renaming took effect in October 26th, 1998.

2 days later, on October 28th, Wiki TV 2 began airing the children's block Wiki TV Kids which previously existed on Wiki TV between 1986 to 1998.

In 2004, Wiki TV 2 began airing sport-related coverages on the channel.

In the following year, In 2005, Wiki TV 2 began airing repeats of For better or worse, which has remained like this until 2016 when the soap opera was canceled.

On August 25th, 2008, Wiki TV 2 launched a new programming block known as Wiki TV Music, which airs every Monday-Saturday from 15:00 pm to 16:00 pm.

In 2010, Wiki TV 2 announced that they will stop airing Wiki TV Kids due to the digital switchover. The move was criticized by viewers as they demanded the channel to keep the children's block on the channel.

On January 14th, 2013, Wiki TV 2 got rid of the 1998 logo which has been in use since ERTV 2 was renamed to the said channel. It has since been replaced with a new one which lasted until 2017 when the channel rebranded.

On March 15th, 2015, Wiki TV 2 started Airing I Was There (a talk show that airs every night from Monday-Saturday). It also began airing Browser as well, but it was canceled 1 year later in 2016 due to low viewership.

On that same year, on July 10th, Wiki TV 2 announced that all of its sport-related coverages will move to the then-upcoming sports channel, Wiki TV Sports.

Following the rebranding of all of Wiki TV's channels and other services, Wiki TV 2 changed the logo, to match the new branding.

1 year later, in 2018, Wiki TV 2 began airing a new children's block known as (Mini Wiki TV) which airs every weekday from 6 am to 9 am. This marks the first time since 2010 that Wiki TV 2 airs a children's block.

In January 2019, Wiki TV 2 began airing shows from Adult Swim as part of the block (Adult Swim on Wiki TV 2), which airs every night at 21:00 pm to 23:20 pm.

In October 2019, Wiki TV 2 has once again changed its logo. The logo bears similarities to the RTL Zwei logo from 2019, which also changed its logo.
