PBS has assumed full responsibility for Education 22, which will start transmissions as TVM2 from March 8.
The state broadcaster said TVM2 will focus on educational and cultural programmes together with current affairs and events.
"The main focus of the station will be that to inform, entertain and facilitate development of human potential via education using the achievements of modern telecommunication and IT."
The new TV station will deliver local documentaries higlighting Maltese history, Maltese personalities, architecture and culture, together with foreign documentaries.
The new channel will also feature direct teaching programmes including Maltese Language and Literature and other direct learning courses in different languages mainly English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish. Sports programmes would not only focus on ‘popular’ sports but would also promote minor sports. There will also be a range of discussion programmes.
