BBC Two Northern Ireland is a television station operated by BBC Northern Ireland. It is broadcast via analogue and digital television.


Unlike BBC Two in the rest of the UK, the channel broadcasts regular news and regional weather updates between programmes. Programmes on the service have included the following:

*The Children's
*First Stop
*Hearts and Minds
*The John Daly Show
*BBC Sport NI at the Milk Cup
*Sky High


The service is now branded "BBC TWO Northern Ireland", but from October 2006 until 17 February 2007 was branded onscreen (but not by announcers) as "BBC Two NI".

During opt-outs, BBC Two Northern Ireland before the introduction of a new ident set across the BBC Two network in February 2007, had 3 exclusive idents that only aired in Northern Ireland, "Causeway" (pictured) and "Fry", where the 2 is seen eating an Ulster fry for breakfast at a table, and "Photo" in which the 2 took a photo of a Belfast landmark.

Before 28 October 2006, there were two separate services - "BBC Two Northern Ireland", an analogue-only service, referred to as "BBC Two", both in idents and continuity, and a digital-only opt-out, "BBC Two NI", (the successor to "BBC Choice Northern Ireland") which carried extra regional programming and continuity between 6pm and midnight. This has all now ended and the two Northern Ireland services have been merged.
