MTV Türkiye is the Turkish subsidiary of MTV. It was on air between October 23, 2006 and August 31, 2011.

History[edit]

Launch[edit]

MTV Türkiye's opening party was held on 17 November 2006 in Istanbul, with a Pussycat Dolls performance. It was officially launced on October 23, 2006. The first broadcast of the channel was Nil Karaibrahimgil's music video Peri.

Digiturk and MTVNI[edit]

MTV Turkey was removed from Digiturk on May 22, 2010 with no reason given to the customers, which caused a small controversy amongst customers.[1] On June 20, 2010, it was reported that MTV Networks International cancelled Multichannel Developers's (the company that operated MTV Turkiye) licence a month ago.[2] On the same day, MTV Turkiye's website closed with a text saying that their new site will be available as soon as possible. As of October 2010, the channel operates on cable TV (e.g. on D-Smart Ch. 63, see Digital television in Turkey) and free-to-air satellite.

The channel ceased broadcasting on August 31, 2011.

MTV Europe was aired instead of MTV Türkiye, on March 1, 2012 on 107. channel of the Digiturk platform.

Current Shows[edit]

The channel combines local and international music, and airs such trademark MTV shows like Jackass, Pimp My Ride, I Bet You Will, Dirty Sanchez, Wildboyz, Viva La Bam, Celebrity Deathmatch, Life of Ryan and I Want A Famous Face with subtitles in Turkish. Twice a week (Sunday, 1 PM GMT+2 and Monday, 9PM GMT+2), the channel also broadcasts classic 'Turk Fantastik' films.
