MTV Live HD is an international 24-hour HD music and entertainment television network that is operated by Viacom International Media Networks' subsidiary Viacom International Media Networks Polska.[1] The channel is available in Europe, South America, Oceania, and Asia.

Overview[edit]

MTV Live HD, the first ever international high definition service dedicated to music, offers a mix of programming from MTV. MTV Live HD is operated by MTVNI's Emerging Markets group, who produce and broadcast the channel from its Warsaw hub.[2] The English-language service also features original and acquired shows, and programming from MTVNI's multi-branded library.

The channel's mix of programming includes shows produced by other international MTV production units in Southern Europe, the UK and South America.[2] From the beginning the channels' programming schedules are split into two blocks - MTV HD and Nickelodeon HD, but from October through December 2010 the channel only aired music related programs; it restarted airing Nickelodeon shows at the weekends but earlier in the morning. From July 1, 2011 the channel began to focus primarily on live music programming.

History[edit]

The channel was launched on September 15, 2008 in some parts of Europe as MTVNHD (MTV Networks-High Definition)[3] and in some parts of South America by the end of 2008.[4] The channel continued to launch in new countries throughout 2010, including Australia where it first became available in standard-definition.

On July 1, 2011, MTVNHD was rebranded as MTV Live HD, with a new logo to match the new logos of all other MTV channels revealed on the same date.[5] However in the UK and Ireland the channel remained as MTVNHD. In Australia MTVN Live was rebranded as MTV Live.

On April 23, 2012, MTVNHD was rebranded as MTV Live HD in the UK and Ireland, along with the launch of a standard-definition MTV Live.[6]

On October 1, 2013 MTV Live HD and MTV Live revamped the channels logo as part of a global rebrand.

On November 3, 2013 MTV Live HD and MTV Live ceased broadcasting on Foxtel's service in Australia.[7]
