BBC 2W launched on 5th November, 2001, following the closedown of the regional variations of BBC Choice. It replaced BBC Two on digital television in Wales. The launch of 2W was followed by the appearance of the 'Personality' idents on BBC Two 2 weeks later.

As the closedown of the analogue transmitters approached, BBC 2W was closed down and replaced by the regular version of BBC Two in Wales in 2009.
