Planet Pop is a British music television channel, previously known as WTF (Weekly Top Forty) and Massive R&B, which launched on 23 November 2010.[1]

WTF used a video jukebox format, which allowed viewers to select videos by texting the video selection number to the number on screen. There were different selection playlists during different times of the day. On 15 August 2011, WTF was rebranded as Massive R&B.[2] On 20 September 2011, the channel launched on Freesat channel 518, having previously only been available on Sky.[3] It moved to 511 in September 2012 but was removed in May 2014.

On 27 March 2013, the channel was rebranded as Planet Pop, with programming aimed at a core audience of 16-24 year olds, including The Planet Pop 40 and Party-On Planet Pop.[4]
