Concept[edit]

MTV Brand New is derived from the hit pan-European MTV music show brand:new, which launched in 1999 on MTV's regional channels. The show was known as mtv:new on the MTV Europe, brand:neu on MTV Germany and brand:new on all other MTV channels in Europe. The show focused primarily on new music releases, cutting edge music videos, introducing new artists and bands, interviews and live performances. The programme was turned into a stand alone music channel in Italy in 2003.[2] Since then MTV Networks Europe has begun to roll out localized Brand New channels since 2006.
