TMF is a Flemish (Dutch spoken) television station operating from Antwerp, Zaventem (sales) and Stockholm (broadcast) which mainly shows popmusic videoclips. TMF is an abbreviation of "The Music Factory". TMF is operated by Viacom International Media Networks.

History[edit]

  • It started as TMF Vlaanderen in 1998, due to the success of the eponymous Dutch music television channel.
  • Since 2011 the channel profiles itself as an interactive music channel, relying heavily on onscreen chat (Photochat, TMF Interactive) and vote programs (Get The Clip, What's Next).
  • In 2012 it dropped all presented programming; since then there are no more VJ's on the channel (with the exception of the Wereldhit series)
    • This leaves popular inhouse music programs such as Dag Top 5 (Daily Top 5) and Ultratop 50 without a presenter; just a voice-over (done by Stijn Smets) stating the numbers and the countdown range.
    • Later in 2012 TMF started airing the presented show GameTown (games) and in 2013 Invade (movies, games, gadgets) started, both made by Bizz-e Entertainment.
  • On 20 January 2014, Comedy Central started as a programming block on the channel; airing daily between 10 pm and midnight.
