Channel V (styled Channel [V]) is the brand name for multiple international music television networks owned by Fox Networks Group, fully owned subsidiaries of 21st Century Fox.[1]

Channel V Asia[edit]

Channel V Asia is the flagship of the Channel V network. It was founded after MTV Asia parted ways with the STAR TV Network. It was produced and operated from Hong Kong from January 1, 1994 until January 1, 2002, after which operations and studios were shifted to Malaysia with some aspects still operating in Hong Kong. Since January 1, 2008, Channel V International has moved back to its original studio in Hong Kong, which is also the same studio of Channel V China and Taiwan.

On September 1, 2017, at 9:30 in the morning, Channel [V] Asia/Philippines (Including Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, Middle East and Africa) will be rebranded as [V] by Fox with the new look of their music blocks. Back Tracks will also be known by its new name as [V] Rewind. However, the Channel [V] brand will remain in India, China, Taiwan, and Australia.
