mun2 is a national Cable TV station aimed at young Latinos in the United States and is owned by NBC Universal. The name mun2 is pronounced "moon dos" which is written "mundos" in Spanish meaning "worlds" in English. It is the sister network of Telemundo and was launched in 2001. The programming of "mun2" is mainly music videos and shows designed for young Latino viewers. Unlike Telemundo, a large segment of mun2's programming is in English.

In its early form, the channel was called GEMS Television, and was known as the Latino version of Lifetime. Telemundo acquired mun2 and began to program it with a bilingual slant featuring programs from its former owners Sony Pictures Entertainment including Spanish language versions of "Charlie's Angels" and "The Dating Game". From midnight to 2 pm, the channel would air programs from Home Shopping Network's Spanish language network HSE (Home Shopping Español), which launched the careers of Pita Ojeda, Luisa Fernanda and Charytin.

The channel was rebranded mun2 and its programming changed to reflect both the Latino and English-language markets. Original programming as well as advertising would feature Spanish and English spoken interchangeably, reflecting the channel's young, bilingual audience. Among the shows that air on the network include many music video-based programs, a dual rebroadcast of the USA Network's "RAW" program (which some portions are censored as they are on USA) showing both the English USA feed as well as the SAP feed, and some youth-oriented programming. "Futurama" episodes dubbed in Spanish once appeared on the network.

mun2 relocated its hub from the Telemundo studios in Hialeah, Florida to a state of the art studio inside Universal CityWalk in Universal City, California.

In 2007 mun2 along with Telemundo have plans to relocate their technical operations staff to Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. Englewood Cliffs currently serves as CNBC's Global Headquarters.

Some shows mun2 broadcasts are:
18 & Over,
The mun2 Shift,
mun2 Shuffle,
One Nation Under Hip-Hop,
The Chicas Project,
Party Mix,
Se Habla Rock!,
2RSLVJ (Tú Eres El VJ or You are the VJ),
