History[edit]

MTV Asia was originally launched on 15 September 1991 as a joint venture between STAR TV and Viacom, but later STAR TV's contract with MTV expired on 2 May 1994. This led to the launch of Channel [V] on 27 May 1994.

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

MTV Asia was launched on 3 May 1995 as a 24-hour English-language channel broadcast from Singapore seen throughout Asia in territories including Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, the Middle East, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam.

In 1996, MTV Asia, along with its two sister channels MTV Mandarin, MTV India and MTV Indonesia was launched on the Palapa C2 digital satellite. Other channels were also carried on Palapa C2 that includes Channel V.

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