Programming

On weekdays, TV 2 starts with Go'morgen Danmark (Literally: Good Morning Denmark), Denmark's first breakfast talkshow.

At 11 a.m. they hand over to the regions who broadcast to 12:30 (with an interruption for national news). That is followed by TV 2's afternoon programming that mostly consists of American drama series and sitcoms. The regional stations also broadcast bulletins in the afternoon and evening, as well as a longer newscast at 19.30.

TV 2's main national newscasts are shown at 19:00 and 22:00 but bulletins in the morning (first newscast at 7:00), at noon, 14:00, 16:00 and 18:00 have been added over the years.

TV 2 broadcasts several American sit-coms such as Friends, Hope & Faith, Joey, The King of Queens, Cheers, Ally McBeal and Reba. Many American drama series, such as Californication, Dirty Sexy Money, Desperate Housewives, Beverly Hills 90210, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, 24, Commander in Chief and Jericho are also present.It also broadcasts Pokémon, which is also seen on Jetix in Denmark. Most shows not produced in Denmark are shown in their original language with Danish subtitling, although some cartoon series are shown dubbed into Danish.

Funding

Historically TV2 was funded by television license fees and advertising sales. However, although the regional channels are still partly funded this way, funding by television license for the main channel ended in July 2004.

This form of double financing, along with a large injection of capital (to cover a deficit of 1 bill DKK) from the Danish State, is currently under investigation by the EU; accusations being that the dual funding has constituted illegal state aid.
