Say 'good-bye' to VH1 Classic and 'hello' to MTV Classic.
MTV is launching a new channel and bringing back programming from the 1990s and early 2000s, according to Viacom press release.
Starting Aug. 1, those who remember the good ol' days of MTV can revisit the network’s most memorable programming. The date also happens to mark MTV’s launch on August 1, 1981.
According to the press release, the debut hour will mirror MTV’s first hour of programming 35 years ago. “MTV Hour One” will also be available via Facebook Live on the channel’s Facebook page.
“From ‘Beavis & Butt-head’ to “Laguna Beach,’ MTV’s programming vault is a music and pop culture goldmine with universal resonance,” said Sean Atkins, President of MTV. “MTV Classic gives audiences a modern and artful home for classic MTV programming and—alongside MTV, MTV2, MTV Live and mtvU—rounds out a diverse portfolio with music and youth culture at its core.”
The channel will also show movies, concerts and music videos from the past three decades.
