MTV May Actually Play Music Again with MTV Live


We all know too well that MTV was once well-known for its constant flow of music and videos that many individuals revered so much – and we also know that disappeared a long time ago.

Good news: it may be coming back.

The major U.S. network is doing its best to shift back to their old ways, as they are rebranding another channel called Palladia that is also owned by their parent company, Viacom. It is now called ‘MTV Live’ and serves as a new leg of MTV that focuses on bringing the music back to the “Music Television” that once existed within MTV.

‘MTV Live’ seems to be a promising dip back into the music world and a happy shift away from MTV’s current program (that has nothing to do with music, really). For the first week, starting February 1, documentaries on musical icons will be aired.

The schedule includes well-known names like Radiohead, Jay-Z, David Bowie, and more.

February 1 — P!nk: The Truth About Love Tour (9:00pm ET)–
February 2 — Front and Center: Alt- J (Network Premiere) (9:00pm ET)
February 3 — Best of Austin City Limits: Radiohead (Network Premiere) (9:00pm ET)
February 4 — Live from Daryl’s House: Joe Walsh (9:00pm ET)
Later…With Jools Holland (10:00pm ET)
February 5 — Jay-Z: Made in America (9:00pm ET)
February 6 — David Bowie: Five Years (9:00pm ET)

Today, if you visit Palladia’s website, it’s already rebranded to MTV Live. You can view its programming schedule for today on the homepage.

Big things are on the horizon…
