Fizz TV was launched on 24 January 2005 on Sky. The output of the station is music videos from a range of genres that are currently popular in the charts. The channel also has a heavy interactive texting element, through the viewers being able to send in text messages and pictures to show on screen.
The parent company of Channel U and Fizz TV, Video Interactive Television, went into voluntary liquidation at the beginning of February 2009, before being purchased by Mushroom TV. When purchasing the two channels, Mushroom TV agreed that Channel U and Fizz TV should be rebranded. The two channels were rebranded as Channel AKA and Starz TV on 16 March 2009.
