BeginningsEdit

In September 2011, RTL Klub started a project named RTL II to launch a new RTL channel in Hungary. In April 2012, it was announced, that RTL will launch RTL II in September or in October with I Love Gjoni (reality show); Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? (Hungarian version) and Heti Hetes (weekly comedy show on Sunday nights).

In July 2012, something started to promote on RTL Klub with these sentences: The Life Is Nice, The Sky Is Blue, The Grass Is Green; but it was not mentioned that these ads are advertising something. In September 2012, it was revealed, that these ads advertised RTL II, the new commercial television channel that will launch on 1 October 2012 and it will replace Reflektor TV.

At the launch the prime-time schedule of RTL II included series: Modern Family, White Collar, Terra Nova, Journeyman, The Forgotten, Chase, shows moved from RTL Klub: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and Heti Hetes and a new magazine Forró nyomon.
