History

Since its inception up until 2003, Odyssey II, as it was known then, featured programming from one of Greece's top private networks - MEGA Channel. In the summer of 2003, a dispute arose between Odyssey Television Network and the North American distributors of MEGA Channel and the programming was subsequently pulled. A short while later, OTN2 began airing programming from ERT Sat (now ERT World) which continues to the present day and has also resulted in the channel being renamed ERT World.
