MTV Portugal is a Portuguese basic cable and satellite television channel airing 24-hour general entertainment. The channel was launched on 1 July 2003 replacing MTV Europe within the territory.

In its initial stages MTV Portugal shared similar content to MTV Spain and MTV Italy, while also airing programming from MTV US and MTV Europe. There was a strong focus on music content but gradually the channel began to air reality shows similar to other MTV channels.[1] The channel was launched in Portugal with the support of private broadcaster SIC. The channel is based at MTV Networks Europe in London and supported by a local office is Lisbon.

In Spring 2011, MTV Portugal began to air new localized programming. The current MTV Portugal VJs are Diogo, DJ Kaka, Luisa and Mc Creu.
