TV 2 Zebra is a Norwegian television channel showing entertainment programmes, interactive programmes and live sport mainly targeted towards a male audience. The channel was started as TV 2 Xtra on 24 January 2004, but before that the channel was first announced in 2003 as TV2 Plus, which is its working name.[citation needed]

The channel has been a pay-TV basic package channel from the beginning. The channel was initially designed as a general secondary channel, but was later converted into a male demographic channel.

TV 2 Zebra has the rights to "Tippeligaen", and the channel broadcasts a live game every week. In addition, people can subscribe to the other games by buying TV 2 Sport. TV 2 Zebra also invests in Norwegian handball leagues.
