Televicentro de Nicaragua, S.A. was founded in December 1965 by Octavio Sacasa Sarria and started broadcasting in March 1966. It was the second television channel in Nicaragua after Channel 6, owned by the Somoza family. Televicentro started broadcasting in colour in 1973.
With the triumph of the Sandinist revolution in July 1979, Channel 2 together with Channel 6 were expropriated by the communist government and turned into the Sistema Sandinista de Televisión (SSTV), the Sandinist Television System. Channel 2 returned to its original owners at the end of 1989.
In 1996, Channel 2 became the first Central American TV channel to have an official web site. Canal 2 also broadcasts from relay-transmitter channel 7 in some parts of the country.
In 2005, Televicentro signed an agreement with Channel 33 from Costa Rica to broadcast the evening transmissions of Noticiero 22-22 in that country.
In 2006, the channel started streaming broadcasts.
