MTV Netherlands is a television channel broadcasting to the Dutch speaking markets in the Netherlands and Flanders. It started in September 2000. Before the start of country-specific channels, the Netherlands viewed the pan-European MTV - MTV Europe.

The channel is broadcast from the MTV Networks Benelux headquarters in Amsterdam.


MTV began its services in Europe on August 1, 1987. Under the name of MTV Europe. At the end of the 90s MTV Europe began to regionalize its MTV feeds. In September 2000 the localized MTV Netherlands started.[3]

Main article: MTV Europe § History

On May 14, 2009 MTV launched its first HD channel in the Netherlands. MTVN HD started on the CAIW cable network and on CanalDigitaal satellite TV.[4] In 2010 followed by the larger cable network UPC Netherlands (May 3).[5] The N stood for Nickelodeon. The channel combined the programs of MTV and Nickelodeon.

On July 1, 2011 MTVN HD changed into MTV Live HD, dropping the programs of Nickelodeon due to the fact that in many European countries a separate HD-simulcast of Nickelodeon began.[6] In September of that same year Ziggo added MTV Live HD to its line-up.[7]

In Spring of 2012 MTV introduced HD-simulcasts of MTV NL and Comedy Central. On April 3 MTV HD started at UPC Netherlands replacing MTV Live HD.[8] In September 2012 KPN followed.[9]
