On 1 November 2013, Foxtel announced they were refreshing their music genre channels to allow for more diversity in their offerings.[2] In addition to changes to the channels being offered by MTV Australia and the branding of the audio channels, it was announced that smoothfm would launch a television station that would offer easy listening adult contemporary music which will correspond to their radio network.[2] Smooth is the first radio station in Australia to launch a television channel. Marcia Hines and Cameron Daddo are the faces of the channel.[4][5]

From 11 October 2017, Foxtel Smooth will become a part-day channel, and will only be broadcast between midnight and 6 pm. This is due to a move by Foxtel to enable Foxtel Smooth to share the same broadcast bandwidth as Foxtel Arts, which will in turn only be available between 6 pm and midnight.[6]

On 3 June 2020, it was confirmed by Foxtel and NOVA that the channel would cease operations at the end of the month. This follows the announcement in May that Foxtel would be outsourcing its music video channel operations to Network 10's parent company ViacomCBS. Foxtel Arts has reverted to a 24-hour channel on 1 July 2020.[7][8]
