Love MTV? Wish there was a channel that dished out more of the fantastic reality, popular culture, and music programming? There’s a second MTV channel, appropriately named MTV2.
The second channel in the MTV family of channels began as a destination that exclusively played music videos. In the age of YouTube, finding a music video is even easier than tuning into a deep cut cable channel, so now, MTV2 specializes in more of what makes MTV great. Not only can you catch reruns of MTV original programming like The Challenge and True Life, but there are plenty of popular shows available as well. It’s a great place to catch classic sitcoms like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Wayans Bros., and Key and Peele.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch an MTV2 live stream.
