MTV Music is a 24-hour Australian pay television music channel which launched on 3 December 2013.[1]

History[edit]

On 29 October 2013, MTV announced they had been working with Foxtel since early 2013 to offer more diversity on the Foxtel platform, as their two current music dedicated channels – MTV Classic and MTV Hits – fought for the same audience as Foxtel Networks channels MAX and [V] Hits respectively.[2] As such, it was decided that MTV Classic and MTV Hits would cease broadcasting on the Foxtel platform to be replaced by two new MTV channels. The channel to replace MTV Hits was MTV Music, the same name of the number one UK music channel, which will feature Pop, Rock, urban and alternative music.[2]

MTV Internet[edit]

On 1 January 2014, MTV Music launched on Australian IPTV provider FetchTV.[3][4]
