Channel 2 News live online TV
Channel 2 (Hebrew: ערוץ שתיים, romanized: Arutz Shtaim), also called "The
Second Channel" (Hebrew: הערוץ השני, romanized: HaArutz HaSheni) was an Israeli
commercial television channel. It started doing experimental broadcasts funded
by the television tax. The channel started commercial broadcasting in 4 November
1993 regulated and managed by The Second Authority for Television and Radio. In
its first years, the channel was operated by three broadcasters ("Keshet",
"Reshet", and "Telad"), and in 2005 only two broadcasters were left while
"Telad" stopped broadcasting due to its loss in the Second Authority's auction.
In 31 October 2017, 24 years after the Channel started broadcasting, it got closed and split into two new channels: Keshet 12 and Reshet 13. After the split, the News Company that was founded with the Channel, keeps broadcasting news in both of the channels parallelly.
