History

The channel was originally known as Kanaal 2. However, it has undergone several rebrandings over the years. At launch in 1995, the channel was branded as Ka2 (Dutch pronunciation of K2), then Kanaal 2. In 2001, it was branded KANAALTWEE.

On 12 February 2008 the channel changed its name to 2BE,[2] retaining the 2 but referring to the Belgian ISO Country Code BE.

In September 2016, the channel changed its name to Q2. This was an extension of the Qmusic radio station brand owned by Medialaan and the channel's program fits.[3]

Programming

Since its parent company also owns VTM (as well as radio channels), it's not uncommon for programs (especially reruns) to be passed on from one channel to another.
