VH1 2013

In December 2012, the network introduced a new logo that closely resembles the first VH1 logo. The logo has a "plus" sign in it to represent VH1's era saying how they are about reality television, plus that they still also show some music videos in the early morning. The logo debuted on promos in December 2012. It fully premiered onscreen on January 5, 2013.
