MTV Hungary is a localized version of MTV Poland for Hungary.

History[edit]

A local MTV Hungary was launched on 1 October 2007, replacing MTV Europe. However, this was closed on December 1, 2013, with MTV Europe replacing MTV Hungary.

On October 3, 2017, it was relaunched with the Hungarian block of music videos airing between 9:00 and 21:00, and the remainder was being taken over by MTV Europe programming. All programming on the MTV Europe block became available in either Hungarian subtitles or dubbing.

From March 2020, for an unknown reason, the Hungarian programming block was controversially reduced to 4 hours between 17:00 to 21:00, then to 4 hours 15 minutes between 17:00 and 21:15.

On February 17, 2021, further changes were made to MTV available in Hungary. Instead of the localized version of MTV Europe with Hungarian subtitles/advertising, the channel broadcasts MTV Poland with localized advertising and subtitles. A Hungarian music block takes place between 17:00 and 21:00 featuring content from MTV Hits, Club MTV and MTV's chart shows.

The channel was rebranded between 14 September and 1 October 2021.

From 1 October 2021, the Hungarian programming block was got longer broadcast time. On Weekdays to 5 hours 25 minutes between 15:35 and 21:00. On Weekends to 5 hours 50 minutes between 15:10 and 21:00.

From April 1, 2022, all specialist Hungarian programming will be replaced by MTV Europe's schedule 2022.[1]
