La 2 (also called "La Dos", or "TVE2") (literally, The Two) is Spain's second state-owned television channel for the public broadcasting service. Its first broadcast was on 15 November 1966. Unlike sister channel TVE1 ("La Uno"), it is not an overly populist channel, and rather like BBC Two in the UK is famous for a more "intellectual" style of programming (often popular with university students) featuring wildlife and cultural documentaries, classic films from home and abroad, more "alternative" American TV seriesWill & Grace, Six Feet Under, Veronica Mars etc. – investigative reporting and the two semi-finals of the Eurovision Song Contest.

However, TVE2 has a very low audience rating, the lowest among nationwide TV channels. From 1 January 2010, all TVE channels no longer show commercials during and between programmes, because of the new Government's law which removed all kinds of advertising from all TVE channels.
