MTV One is part of MTV Networks Europe. The channel is broadcast in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

Channel History

MTV UK started in 1997 alongside MTV Central and MTV Italy as MTV Europe began regionally diversifying. The channel was originally broadcast in analogue from the Astra 1A satellite as part of the Sky Multichannels subscription package. However, it became a digital only channel on the end of April 2001 as part of Sky's shutdown of its analogue satellite service.

MTV UK rebranded in late July 2007 "MTV One" UK. MTV One is also broadcast on cable and was also broadcast on the now defunct ITV Digital digital terrestrial service.

Between 2000 and 2003 the slogan "The Number One Music Channel" was used for MTV UK & Ireland. The fact that since then MTV has played very little music (focusing more on programming and leaving the spin-off channels to play the music) on the channel may be why the slogan was dropped.

Presenters and VJs

Notable MTV One presenters, past and present, include Ray Cokes, Justin Lee Collins, Donna Air, Tim Kash, Zane Lowe, Alex Zane, Sara Cox, June Sarpong, Sarah Cawood, Emma Ledden, Dannan Breathnach, Lisa Snowdon, Kelly Brook, Richard Blackwood, Cat Deeley, Louis Bhose, Jon Franks, Edith Bowman, Russell Brand, DP, Dave Berry, Anthony Crank, Eddie Temple Morris and Emma Griffiths.

Location

The channel is based in Camden, London, in the building which was once home to TV-am. The same site hosts the majority of MTV Networks Europe channels, including the pan-European MTV Base, MTV Two, MTV Dance and MTV Hits (although being pan-European, these channels only contain UK aimed programming & advertising); along with non-MTV branded MTVNE output such as VH1 and TMF UK. The channel is split into two advertising regions, one for the UK and another for the Republic of Ireland.

MTV One Rebranding



In July 2007, MTV UK was renamed to 'MTV One' with a major new look launching across most of the MTV channels. MTV2 was renamed 'MTV Two' to follow the consistent branding across the channels. MTV Flux remained with its previous graphics, however, which launched in 2006. Promotion started on July 1, 2007 under the title 'MTV New 22.07.07'. [2]

MTV Extra was launched in 1999 and was a mixture of music videos and repeats of MTV Programming. Towards the end of the channel's life, programming was dropped and the channel showed solely music videos (under the "Pure Music" name), with MTV Dance in the evenings. MTV Dance was spun off into its own channel on April 20 2001, and MTV Extra was renamed MTV Hits at 6a.m. on May 1 2001. MTV Extra is notable for being the only spin-off MTV channel to use the same song title graphics as its parent channel (although it had its own separate idents).
