TV 2 is the largest commercial television station in Norway. TV 2 started to broadcast on 5 September 1992. They have a license to broadcast national commercial television until the end of 2015 for commercial terrestrial television. Their headquarters are located in Bergen. 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).

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, Da damene dro, Skal vi danse and American series such as Grey's Anatomy, Cleaners, Scrubs, Brothers & Sisters, Modern Family and Criminal Minds.[1] They also produce original programming, including the award-winning show Gylne tider.
