TV 2 Sportskanalen, formerely TV 2 Sport, stylized as TV 2 SPORT 1 to 5, is a Norwegian pay-TV channel that shows sports (the channel is spread out over 5 different channels, named TV 2 Sport 1 to 5). It heavily features football, including the Norwegian Premier League. This channel also broadcasts international matches. It broadcast four 2010 World Cup matches.

The channel was launched on March 24, 2007 from Canal Digital, Get, Lyse and BKK.[1] In the autumn, it launched on the terrestrial RiksTV. From March 22, 2009, the channel will also be available from the Viasat satellite platform.[2]

The channel is a premium pay channel with a relatively high price (159 NOK per month, as of 2009). In addition to the main channel, it also offers four extra channels, TV 2 Sport 2, TV 2 Sport 3, TV 2 Sport 4 and TV 2 Sport 5, which allows them to broadcast five matches at once. The extra channels are, however, not available terrestrially.

In 2012 the channel was rebranded to 24 hours sports channel. In 2013 the resolution was changed from SD to HD.
