MTV has actually been showing music on and off for a while now, normally in the mornings at the weekend, and occasionally in the evenings.


The current music block in the morning is dropped from 15th June.

ps. maybe the last few pages should be split in to an MTV thread?

Anyway, I think MTV UK should update its music channels (which are often neglected, graphic-wise) in order to add the current font now used by MTV.


Their European counterparts use the same graphics as the UK channels. Interestingly in the US, their version of MTV Hits is now Nick Music.

A quick flick through the Sky EPG and MTV is showing 1 hour of music on a Friday at 7pm. Tonight it's Post Malone's Official Top 10 Thumbs down

The "Worlds most scenic railway journeys" on C5 tonight, is shown on Virgin's EPG as "first aired" Christmas Day last year. Virgin's EPG team can only go on what C5 tell them, C5 admit that it's a brand new episode (that's a first..), yet don't seem to want to correct this.

The opposite to the usual problem.

The Virgin EPG is the one main EPG that doesn't just go on what the channels tell them, but is bought from a third party in order to include the data that their TIVO system requires.

On my box it shows the programme as being series 1 episode 3, which is from New Zealand's South Island, and was shown last year. Per C5, the programme is series 2 episode 5, from New Zealand's North Island.

I find Virgin Media's EPG often to be wrong - e.g. on Thou Shalt Not Kill, currently on More 4, they have had listings for the wrong series for weeks - More 4 is showing the series after the one the Virgin EPG is describing. It is correct on other platforms - as is C5 tonight.

Tomorrow morning's music block from 6-11am has been dropped, and replaced with Daria, My Super Sweet 16 and Pimp My Ride.

The weekday morning music blocks are still in the schedule though.

Now Comedy Central’s airing C5 clip shows like ‘When Talent Shows Go Horribly Wrong’. Are they forgetting that this is a comedy channel?

Viacom are so unbelievably cheap. Their first move after merging with CBS was to invoke (still ongoing) mass layoffs at CBS O&Os.

I guess this type of scheduling is to be expected when Comedy Central now falls under Channel 5/Ben Frow’s jurisdiction. I believe MTV also falls under Frow’s remit too.

I've just seen a trailer for a repeat of MTV Unplugged: Liam Gallagher, which is being shown next Friday evening on MTV.

The trailer states "brand new" at the end, so unless MTV are taking a leaf out of Channel 5's book and repackaging it, I can't see how they can call it brand new.

It's not even brand new to MTV (as in the main channel), as it has been shown several times before.

Viacom filling a few hours of the schedule with a funny clip show is hardly a big deal.

The Ben Frow effect spilling over across the portfolio.
