Q2, formerly 2BE, is a Belgian television channel owned by the commercial broadcasting company Medialaan, or Media Avenue (translated).


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 February 12, 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 that Media Avenue (Medialaan) owns and the channel's program fits.[3]



Programs broadcast by 2BE

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