MTV Czech Republic (Czech: MTV Česká republika) was a 24-hour music and entertainment television channel that served the Czech Republic and Slovakia.[1] The channel was launched on 29 November 2009[2] under a licensing agreement between MTV Networks Europe, a subsidiary of MTV Networks and CME, the owner of TV Nova.

The channel featured local advertising and sponsorship opportunities, along with subtitled or dubbed programming in Czech. The channel used a similar on-air identity as other MTV channels in Europe and around the world, although it had also produced some idents and graphics of its own and had won several awards. It was also one of the few widescreen MTV channels in the world, at the time of its existence.

MTV Czech broadcast weekly on average over 100 hours of pure music content, including various blocks, making it the only MTV channel in the world to do so, alongside MTV Adria. The most music on MTV Czech is played on Saturday's, from noon (12:05 PM) till Sunday morning (09:35 AM). That is 21 hours straight of pure music content, which basically respects and reflects the original concept of MTV of a 24-hour music-only channel.

MTV Czech mostly played current music videos or videos from the past few years, although occasionally it aired older videos from the early 2000s and mid to late 1990s. The oldest music videos to air on the network were "Imagine" by John Lennon and "Like a Virgin" by Madonna. Unlike most of the other music channels from MTV Networks around the world, MTV Czech usually played music videos uncut and in full length.

The channel was closed on 31 December 2013.

These videoclips continued throughout the whole week and varied each day, featuring amongst other guests also the famous Czech band Charlie Straight, who have won two EMA awards for Best Czech & Slovak act.

  • On 9 August 2011, MTV Czech updated another opening theme with the new logo, this time for the rap/r'n'b block 'Urban'. This is the third opening theme for a music block to be updated after the July rebrand. Eventually all music blocks later updated their themes with the new logo.
  • On 1 September 2011, the channel updated its "Coming Up Next - Menu" bumper and started using small image slides (thumbnails) on the side to improve communication with its viewers. It was the first and only MTV channel in Europe to do so.

  • In mid-October MTV Czech started using several other headlines, along with the new slogan, in short 5-second bumpers. These headlines consist of the letters of MTV:
  • Má To Vyřvaný (Amp It Up!)
  • Musíš To Vidět (You Must See This!)
  • Má To Vnady (It Has Bossom!)
  • Máme Tady Večírek (We Have A Party!)
  • Můžeš To Vyhrát (You Can Win This!)

MTV also aired several special bumpers, similar to those of 2010. The Christmas-centred programming lasted from 24 December 2011 to 1 January 2012. The oldest music video to air during the week was Last Christmas by British pop duo Wham!
  • From 9 to 14 February 2012 MTV celebrated Valentine's Day with several new bumpers depicting love between two animated characters. The idents incorporated mainly pink, purple, white and red colours.
  • On 15 February 2012, MTV commemorated the death of Whitney Houston and paid tribute to the singer by airing blocks of her music videos throughout the day, a 5-minute segment about her tragic death, a special bumper and running text at the bottom of the screen, a crawler, which stated the following: "We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of Whitney Houston, who died on Saturday in Los Angeles at age of 48."
  • On 8 March 2012, MTV Czech started using short subliminal messages during broadcast as promotion for the upcoming premiere of Beavis and Butt-head. These animated messages were only 1 to 3 seconds long and involved Beavis and Butt-head randomly appearing on the screen, usually beating each other. Another variant of these messages uses colourful silhouettes of their figures. These messages overlay the channel's logo and on-air graphics and have been used exclusively in the past only on MTV US throughout October 2011 to highlight the series premiere. The messages have evoked interest in viewers, causing them to discuss this curiosity online.
  • On 23 March MTV Czech officially started promoting the series premiere using the same teasers that have aired in the U.S. These promos have been localized into Czech and it was the first time that MTV Czech has decided to import original MTV US promos instead of producing their own. Apart from that, 6 new bumpers to promote the series have been produced.
  • On 8 April 2012, the controversial original uncut version of Michael Jackson's Black or White (without graffiti) was aired on MTV Czech at 4PM during a Michael Jackson 'Top 10' countdown. Due to the fact the channel decided to air also uncut versions of Michael Jackson's other videos, such as 'Bad' and 'Thriller', it ended up being 22 minutes behind schedule.
  • On 9 April 2012, MTV Czech received a refresh and started airing a new set of idents by MTV World Design Studio/Staat/Buck - Group Hug, Chameleon and Party Animal.
  • Caged premiered on 14 May 2012.
  • In mid-June, MTV rolled out a set of new summer idents by company "123 Klan". They include similar characters, along with a tiger, that have been present in bumpers used for Valentine's Day. MTV Czech produced also several bumpers of its own and headed out to all of the major summer festivals and events. Footage from these events was later shown in "Backstage".
  • Throughout the first week of September 2012, MTV updated and started airing new promos for all of its main music blocks - including 'Alternative Nation', 'Home Sweet Home', 'In Love With MTV', 'MTV Rocks!', 'Party Zone', 'Urban' and 'Wishlist'. After a short break, a set of new local DJ's returned to put together the 'Party Zone' playlists.
  • On 1 October 2012, MTV Czech received another refresh and started airing a new set of idents by MTV World Design Studio/Buck - Brodown, Dream Big and Infectious.
  • At the end of October 2012, MTV Czech rolled out a set of three Halloween-themed bumpers that included characters from similar idents used during summer and spring. These were once again produced by company "123 Klan".
  • On 28 November 2012, MTV Czech celebrated its 3rd Birthday, accompanied by a party at local popular club ROXY. The event was open also for the public.
  • Throughout December 2012, MTV aired a set of Christmas themed bumpers that followed in footsteps of the previous ones used during Autumn, Summer and Spring. They featured the same characters and depicted them in a snow-covered holiday environment. This was the final set of idents by studio "123 Klan". During the holidays, MTV Czech broadcast again several themed musical blocks and charts, although to a lesser extent than in the previous year.
  • By February 2013, MTV Czech began dropping its current on-air branding and adopting parts of the branding of MTV US. Most new promos produced and aired after 1 February use the on-air identity and style of MTV US.
  • Underemployed premiered on 1 February 2013 at 9PM.
  • The L.A. Complex premiered on 17 April 2013 at 9PM.
  • From 5 to 26 May 2013, Chill Out Zone was put on hiatus in favor of Geordie Shore seasons one to three marathon re-runs.
  • Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life premiered on 27 May 2013 at 10PM.
  • Since late May 2013, MTV Czech has started airing a weekly night block titled "A Night With...", each week focusing on a different artist.
  • Washington Heights premiered on 9 June 2013 at 9PM.
  • In July MTV started airing two new idents (Adrenaline Rush and Underdog) and most of the music blocks (In Love With MTV, Party Zone, Urban, Wishlist) once again received new promos.
  • As of November 2013, MTV Czech Republic still broadcast music videos in a content ratio of 50% music and 50% reality shows, something not seen in other territories where all of the music content was replaced and moved to other MTV channels or removed completely - as for example in the US, UK, Latin America and Russia. At that time, the only MTV channel with more music content than MTV Czech was MTV Adria, with a content ratio of 70% music and 30% reality shows. MTV Czech also remained one of the few widescreen MTV channels in the world even after the global July 2011 rebrand, though it was expected for the majority of other MTV channels in Europe to switch to 16:9 by that time as well.
  • In late November 2013 CME announced it will not renew its current licence with MTV Networks for operating the channel and MTV brand in the Czech and Slovak market due to increased debts and will hand over the licence back to Viacom.
  • On the same day Viacom has stated it will take charge of MTV Czech Republic as of 1 January 2014, and re-launch the channel in the region on that date, promising more shows, more local content and earlier premieres.
  • On 21 November 2013, Viacom announced that MTV Czech will cease operations on 31 December 2013.
  • On 1 January 2014, MTV Europe started broadcasting again in Czech Republic and Slovakia. Run from London, UK, it started featuring additional audio and subtitle tracks in Czech, Hungarian, Romanian and other languages relevant to countries where local MTV feeds have ceased or are planning to cease operations. MTV Europe currently features US-imported longform shows throughout most of its daily schedule, with very little music content appearing late in the night and during the early morning hours. Unlike MTV Czech, it no longer features any specialist music shows.
