CCTV-2 is a Chinese free-to-air television channel operated by China Central Television in the People's Republic of China. The channel broadcasts programs on the economy and life services.

History

CCTV-2 was launched in 1973 as China's first color TV network and broadcast primarily educational programmes.

In 1983, CCTV-2 shifted its programming to broadcast sports events, agricultural programmes, variety shows, and reruns of CCTV-1 productions.[citation needed] It also aired TV series from other countries.

In 2000, the channel was rebranded as "CCTV Economic Life and Service Channel".

On 24 August 2009, CCTV2 was rebranded again as "CCTV Business Channel". Television programmes not related to finance, economics, or life services were moved to CCTV-3 and CCTV-10.
