NRK2 is one of the TV channels of the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK). It was launched in 1996. It has traditionally concentrated on more on cultural and in-depth programmes than its mother channel NRK1 and has also shown drama series, comedies, and news. When not broadcasting regular programmes, it used to show "Svisj", an interactive programme with music videos and SMS chat</s>. With the launch of NRK3 in early September 2007, "Svisj" moved to the new station and NRK2 refocused its programming to focus on news, documentaries, and cultural programs.
