Channel V (styled Channel [V]) is a Southeast Asian pay television network owned by Star China Media and Fox Networks Group Asia Pacific, a pay-TV channel unit of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International. It was launched by what was back then Star TV to replace MTV's original Asian operation.
Channel V Asia is the flagship of the Channel V network. It was founded after MTV Asia parted ways with the Star TV Network. It was produced and operated from Hong Kong from January 1994 until January 2002, after which operations and studios were shifted to Malaysia with some aspects still operating in Hong Kong. Since 1 January 2008, Channel V International has moved back to its original studio in Hong Kong, which is also the same studio of Channel V China and Taiwan.
It is operated by Star India. On 1 July 2015, the channel discontinued its musical programming and started focusing on original content through fiction dailies and studio formats that address teenage issues. On 30 June 2016, stopped airing original programming. On 1 August, it rebranded its graphical package. Later,it discontinued operations on 15 September 2018.
Channel [V] ceased broadcasting in Australia on 26 February 2016, as it merged with [V] Hits.
V Hits is the sister station of Channel V Australia, focusing more on hit music-only programming. It was formerly known as Club V until 12 January 2007, and Channel V 2 until 15 November 2009.
It was a joint venture between Fox Networks Group Asia Pacific, Fox International Channels, TV Xtreme Broadcasting Company and Northern Star Productions as network providers. It discontinued operations on 13 July 2012.
Fox International Channels Asia Pacific sold certain Mandarin language entertainment television channels that target Mainland China, including Channel V Mainland China, to China Media Capital. As a result, Channel V Mainland China is a part of Star China Media as of 2014. It is broadcast free-to-air on AsiaSat 7. Channel V switches between Simplified and Traditional Chinese with selected Channel V International programs airing with Chinese subtitles. It is the only feed that is available free-to-air.
