MTV is a Southeast Asian pay-television channel that was originally launched on 1 January 1992 as a music channel exclusively on Star TV, and then on 25 April 1995 as a standalone pay TV channel. It is owned by Viacom International Media Networks.


MTV Asia was launched on 1 January 1992, a joint venture between Star TV and Viacom, but later STAR TV's contract with MTV expired on 1 May 1994. This led to the birth of Channel V.

MTV Mandarin launched as a 24-hour Chinese language channel in Taiwan serving Mandarin-speaking China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore on 25 April 1995.

MTV Southeast Asia launched on 3 May 1995 as an English-language channel seen throughout Asia in territories including Brunei, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

MTV partners with domestic media companies to produce local-language content for its channels in Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.[1]
