Not to be confused with MTV India (Middle East).

MTV is Viacom18’s youth entertainment channel. Much like its American counterpart, MTV moved its focus away from Bollywood music in the late 2000s to concentrate on youth-oriented reality shows, most famously Roadies, Splitsvilla and India’s Next Top Model, as well as serialised fiction shows (much like the now-defunct Channel V, Star’s music-turned-youth channel). However, it does air some music programmes, such as MTV Unplugged. All programming is in Hindi.

Viacom18 does have a full-fledged Hindi music channel, MTV Beats, which was launched in 2016.
