Early stages[edit]

MTV was established in 1991 as a TV channel that aimed to raise the standard in local Lebanese television in terms of Arab and western media content that would reflect the Lebanese people’s aspirations and values.[citation needed]

MTV shutdown and re-opening[edit]

In 2002, the Lebanese government presided by Rafik Hariri initiated a non-constitutional process to forcibly close MTV. It succeeded but on April 7, 2009 MTV re-opened four years after Syrian forces left Lebanon.[1][citation needed]
