JIM (launched as JIMtv in 2001) is a Flemish television channel that is aimed at people aged between 15 and 24.[1] It's actually an abbreviation for "Jong, Interactief en Meer" (English: Young, Interactive and More). During its first years, the channel mainly broadcast music videos. They have since started mixing this with programs such as Brainiac and Snoop Dogg's Father Hood.

Radio station[edit]

Originally, the VMMa was planning on launching a youth radio station called JIMfm as a complement to JIMtv. These plans where later dropped.[2]
