MTV (Music Television) Greece is the Greek subsidiary of MTV, to be launched on New Year's Day, 2008.

During summer 2007, Victor Restis acquired the rights to operate the Greek branch of MTV after a bidding war against the Minos Kiriakou (who owns ANT1 and Macedonia TV) and Andreas Kouris who already possesses another music channel in Greece, MAD.

MTV Greece plans to broadcast local and international music, as well as MTV's trademark shows which will be shown with subtitles in Greek.

For the time being, MTV Europe is transmitted in Greece until this branch begins transmitting.
