Woohoo! The MTV I loved growing up is coming back! They will be replacing VH1 classic and running all the shows and music videos from the 90's and early 2000's .


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.



I don't have cable. But at least it something I can enjoy when I visit my parents.

'movies and tv shows' im afraid is all we will get.
i wish they would just play 24 hours of videos.

mtv will show the same crap movies, same reruns, same garbage as now, only call it special cause its on a 'new' old channel.

i clicked the link hoping to hear 24 hours of music videos.

mtv is run by internati0nalist s0ciopaths only interested in profit. if it was run by artists, imagine how great it would be. who can afford to spend 10 million dollars on a video if there is no place to play it.

videos were so amazing in the 80's and 90's.
then mtv killed the videos by not playing them anymore.


i hope one day someone will take a chance and play videos 24 hours a day again, because if they did, good by mtv.

in fact, it used to be called MUSIC television, and they dropped the 'music' so they could just play # reruns.

A music channel which plays music? I thought they were long gone.
Here in the UK we have one called 4 music and it plays 10 tracks all on repeat.....good god I hate it at work with some of my guys some play the same track 7 hours straight and they have awful taste.
I hope we can get this new channel in the UK.

MTV thought it was keeping up with the times turning it's back on music (which it did) I'm not saying music channels don't exist, I'm saying a lot of them masquerade as music channels.

That being said music has changed a lot, now every genre has a chart's list and a 1000 + 1 ways exist to listen to music. The likes of MTV and Christmas number one are but nostalgia wafting in the wind... Probably like how fertilizer grips a neighbourhood on a moist summer's day to some I can imagine.

Honestly I liked the animate shows like the Maxx, Daria, Aeon Flux and Beavis & Butthead. No one is more anti-PC then B & B . Plus we got to see some cool music videos in between.

I do like Beavis and Butthead lol. If MTV Classic is serious, it better have a LOT of videos. All the time. I cut down to the 10 channels Verizon would allow me as aI watch all tv/movies/music on the net.

I do actually turn on the TV fior TWD and New ears Eve with Anderson Cooper. Otherwise, it is a brick. An antique.

"shows and music videos from the 90's and early 2000's"

...in that case we already know it's going to suck. MTV died (soldout) around 94. After that it was nothing but 'reality' slop and the only videos they showed were during those a$$clown hosted live count down shows.

No way man, those did not take over the majority of the time slots until like '98 . Plus, those of us who were kids or teenagers at the time loved the programming. If you did your maturing in the 80's though, then yea I can understand how many disliked them when they went a more mainstream route.

Can't blame them, by Y2k, just about everything independent that was successful was purchased up by the establishment, leading to the greatest propaganda piece to rob all of the savings of the last generation with "end of world, dark age" fear mongering. And everyone was getting the same exact message all across the board for the very first time.

That is what paved the way for what followed in 2001. And the Western world has been receiving the signal from the same source ever since.

But at least they throw us a bone and gave us back MTV classic

Screw EmptyV, classic or not. It sucked then and it will still suck now.

This means no more That Metal Show which is a travesty. I'm hoping it comes back in some form somewhere.
