The article deals with the discrete sine-Gordon equation that describes an infinite system of nonlinearly coupled nonlinear oscillators on a 2D-lattice with the external potential V (r) = K(1 - cos r). The main result concerns the existence of heteroclinic travelling waves solutions. Sufficient conditions for the existence of these solutions are obtained by using the critical points method and concentration-compactness principle.
