There were some great music channels in the past. Viva from Germany (and to some extent Poland) and TMF from Belgium and Netherlands were some of the best. ZTV from Sweden was decent as well at times.

That is until they were all bought by Viacom and ruined it all with reality dross and sitcoms.
totally agree Viva Deutschland & TMF were the bomb. all the eurodance, happy hardcore, gabba & hard trance you could ever want.

sadly after twenty five years Viva is being closed down on 31st decemeber so Comedy Central can go twenty four hours :rolleyes: Viacom to close former MTV challenger VIVA

sadly its been a shaddow of its former self since Viacom brought it. you will never be forgotten my old friend

In this day and age, you'd think it's simpler to just allocate a separate channel to it instead of time sharing.

Before the MTV takeover TMF was great. Went downhill rapidly after MTV involved.

I use to like TMB on 62E with it's selection of Turkik music but they ended up out or reach on 42E East beam and although it's now available online it's not quite the same as watching via sat.

Seeing as the administrators closed them down thats now impossible. The website is still up, but isnt being updated & will be sold as the administrators dismantle the company. If Ive read the finacial report correctly Vintage owed near enough half a million quid by the time they threw the towel in so every penny counts for the creditors.
