TV2 in Denmark is a system or a family of TV stations: one national (TV2 Denmark) and eight regional ones.
The regional stations are independent – both to the national station and to eachother. Each of them has its own Board of Directors and management. There is also a council of 50 - 100 people representing a wide range of different organisations in each region.
Every four years the Council elects the Board of Directors. Apart from that the role of the Council is to comment on programs and to give inspiration and good ideas. It meets twice a year.

TV SYD (TV South) is one of the eight regional TV stations in the Danish TV2 system, which is one of Denmark 's two nationwide channels. The TV SYD region consists of the southern part of Jutland and in addition, TV SYD has programming commitments in South Schleswig (northern Germany , just south of the German-Danish border), where a Danish-speaking minority lives. The population of the region is about one million. Daily transmission times in the region are at present 10.50 am – 12.30 pm, newsbreaks 4.05 pm and 6.15 pm, 7.30 - 8.00 pm, and 10.20pm. Normally TV SYD is viewed by 25% of the one million people in the area. Share-of-viewing is about 50%
History: TV SYD went on air in 1983 as an experiment under the auspices of the Danish Broadcasting Company Denmark Radio (TV1) and in 1987 was approved as the first and only regional TV station in the TV 2 system.
Programme profile: TV SYD is not primarily concerned with broadcasting the daily news. This is done in the awareness that the region is well-supplied with news media such as the daily press, regional radio and local radio. TV SYD sees itself primarily as a culture-disseminating and culture-creating institution. Nine years of experimenting with regional TV in South Jutland form the basis of programming philosophy where the main emphasis is on describing the daily lives of individuals. The reality that is typical of daily life in the Danish Parliament, in the local council chambers and the boardrooms of companies is different from everyday reality of individuals. Issues of business and political life are usually presented from the angle of individuals. TV SYD primarily broadcasts to the viewers of the region, but also supplies programs to TV 2's nationwide range of broadcasts.
Organizations: The basis of TV SYD is formed by the TV SYD Support Association (19.000 members) who appoint, along with a number of grass-roots and business organisations and others, the one-hundred-members TV SYD Committee. The committee elects the Board of Trustees for the TV SYD Trust Fund, which has established the production company A/S TV SYD.
Financing: TV SYD is financed mainly by license fee.
Staffing: TV SYD employs a staff of about 70 people.
Equipment: TV SYD's production equipment consists at present of one TV studio, six digital editing rooms plus one media composer, one SNG truck and a fleet of modern ENG-units. We do too have fiber channel video input possibilities across the region. Brands are AVID and DVC-Pro.

TV2/Lorry is one of the 8 regional TV stations in Denmark. We broadcast to the population of Greater Copenhagen, i.e. 2.0 million inhabitants or a third of Denmark's population.
We broadcast regional news in slots at the national network TV2/Denmark.
Furthermore we broadcast several hours a day on our own HD channel, TV2/Lorry.
We are completely financed by license fee and a few sponsorships, but are obliged to carry commercials in our programmes. The money from those commercials goes to the commercially financed, state-owned national network TV2/Danmark.
The name - TV2/Lorry - sounds strange to English-speaking people. But it has nothing to do with motor lorries. Lorry is an old music hall founded in 1896. It does not serve as a music hall anymore, but we have kept the name, Lorry.
