Chilled TV is a British music television channel, previously known as WTF (Weekly Top Forty), Massive R&B and Planet Pop, 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- to 24-year-olds, including The Planet Pop 40 and Party-On Planet Pop.[4]

On 9 September 2015, the channel was rebranded as Chilled TV, which features laidback and acoustic songs. On 13 October 2015, Planet Pop returned as "Planet" on Sky channel 389, but was removed on 18 January 2016.

On 31 March 2017, Chilled TV was temporarily rebranded as Chilled 90s, following the success of Now 80s.

The channel is only allowed to have two ad-breaks an hour.

It reaches a million viewers in Sky alone each month.
