C Music TV is an international music television channel dedicated to classical, soundtrack and chillout music videos.

History[edit]

C Music Entertainment Ltd was founded in 2007[1] and the channel's distribution is handled by Paris-based Agents Thema. The C in C Music TV stands for the genres of the channel's playlist which covers classical music (e.g. Beethoven), crossover music (e.g. Il Divo), cinema music (original film soundtracks e.g. John Williams) and chillout music (e.g. Lemon Jelly).

C Music TV avoids long form concerts and operas traditionally associated with classical music on television and instead replaces them with short form music videos, more widely associated with pop music.[2]

C Music TV broadcasts to host cable, DTH satellite, IPTV and mobile phone networks via eight contribution satellites. To Europe on the Eurobird 9A (9° East) satellite (encrypted with CONAX) and on Eutelsat 10A (10° East), to North Africa on the Eutelsat 5 West A (5.0° West) satellite, to South Africa on Eutelsat 36 B (35.9° East), to Portugal on Hispasat 1E (30.0° West) and on SES 5 (5° East), to the Middle East on Badr 5 (26.0° East) and on Intelsat 20 (68.5° East).[3]

In June 2008 C Music TV launched a subscription service on their website cmusic.tv and in 2013 launched a new high-definition channel C Music TV HD.

C Music TV won the Award for 'Best Music TV Channel 2008' at the Hot Bird European TV Awards which were announced on 14 November 2008 at a ceremony held at the “Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista” in Venice, Italy. It received the Hot Bird Jury's "Special Mention" Trophy in 2009 and in November 2012 it won the title of 'Best Music Channel 2012' at the (renamed) Eutelsat TV Awards 2012.[4][5]
