On 29 October 2013, MTV announced they had been working with Foxtel since early 2013 to offer more diversity on the Foxtel platform, as their two current music dedicated channels - MTV Classic and MTV Hits - fought for the same audience as Foxtel Networks channels MAX and [V] Hits respectively. As such, it was decided that MTV Classic and MTV Hits would cease broadcasting on the Foxtel platform to be replaced by two new MTV channels. The channel to replace MTV Classic was MTV Dance, a channel dedicated to dance, hip hop, and RnB music from around the word - MTV's first channel to be dedicated to three different genres of music.
On 30 November 2016, MTV Dance moved from channel 810 to 804 on the Foxtel platform.
