History[edit]

On 1 November 2013, Foxtel announced they were refreshing their music genre channels to allow for more diversity in their offerings.[1] In addition to changes to the channels being offered by MTV Australia and the branding of the audio channels, it was announced that smoothfm would launch a television station that would offer easy listening adult contemporary music which will correspond to their radio network.[1] Smooth is the first radio station to launch a television channel.[3]

Marcia Hines and Cameron Daddo are the faces of the channel.[4][5]
