VH1 Brasil was a music channel from Viacom-owned Viacom International Media Networks The Americas. The network was launched in November 2005 on some cable systems, but it wasn't until May 2006 that it was launched on DirecTV Brazil, replacing MTV Latin America.

It targets 25- to 44-year-olds and plays local and international music videos from the 1970s to the 2000s. It also airs famous "Top 20" and "Top 40" contdowns from VH1 USA. At its launch, VH1's Celebreality shows, such as The Surreal Life, Breaking Bonaduce, My Fair Brady, SuperGroup and So NoTORIous, weren't aired on VH1 Brasil, yet they did air on its sister network, VH1 Latin America. However, since September 2006, the network has started running those shows, starting with The Surreal Life. VH1 Brasil also airs The Graham Norton Show, MTV-produced Next and Comedy Central-produced South Park.

VH1 Brasil replaced VH1 Soul on SKY Brasil, where it was available in the country since 2004, though, in 2013, SKY replaced VH1's standard-definition feed with the relaunched MTV, while retaining VH1 HD. In December 12, 2014, VH1 was also taken off from NET, being replaced with a local version of VH1 MegaHits.[1] VH1 Brasil was replaced by Paramount Channel on November 14, 2014. It remains unclear whether this same movement is done in other countries in Latin America where still transmitted signal VH1.
