Following the news that 19E is to lose MTV 2 Pop in September, there are now reports circulating that Viva Plus is facing oblivion too.

MTV 2 will be replaced by a version of Nick, and the German Transponder News site, is saying ViVa Plus will be turned into a phone quiz channel. :-doh!

Lets hope MTV DE doesnt get as bad as MTV UK so least we can see some music. When all these channels are gone.

So are they not moving MTV2 POP to a different transponder? Why they are just axing it is silly, it's the only decent station for the europop which is quite refreshing considering you don't get that sort of thing in the UK.

Yes I enjoy MTV2POP to get away from the urban stuff. POP doesnt exist in the UK its all URBAN. So thats why they want to get rid of the channel so that means euro pop dies and make way for the NEW MTV PAY channels MTV Hits,Base ect.... MTV Hits is arwful )(-red


Anyway, It isnt all bad news MTV Central is going to show more music !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A quote from digital spy for MTV Central http://forum.digitalspy.co.uk/board/...=207693&page=2

The next weeks they will play music from 5:10-5:30pm and 8:00-8:50 pm too!
The rest is the same. 1:00am-1:50pm! and TRL from 4pm to 5pm.
I'll hope that the news will be right. That will be thy right way.
Looks like its going to be a better channel then MTV Europe and I like MTV Central at night for the music .
