ATN B4U Music is a Canadian Category B Hindi language specialty channel owned by Asian Television Network (ATN). ATN B4U Music broadcasts music-related programming primarily in the form of a variety of music video-based programs and interview series. Programs are primarily sourced from B4U Music, an Indian-based television channel, in addition to locally produced Canadian content.

History[edit]

In April 2005, ATN was granted approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch a television channel called ATN - Music Network One (Hindi Music) - AMN1, described as "a national ethnic Category 2 pay television programming undertaking devoted to music programming, interviews with the artists, scenes from the production of their music videos and songs, all in the Hindi language."[1]

The channel launched on April 4, 2006 as ATN B4U Music initially on Rogers Cable.[2][3]

On September 25, 2012, B4U Music's broadcasting license to operate as a pay service was revoked at ATN's request.[4] The channel subsequently re-launched as a regular specialty service on June 17, 2012, under the following license: ATN- Music Network One (Hindi Music) - AMN1.
