"MTV 80s" is a music channel with music videos from the 1980s, which began broadcasting on October 5, 2020. As its name reflects, "MTV 80s" features music videos mainly from the 1980s.


Before the launch

On November 30, 2004, "VH1 Classic Europe" featured a program with '80s music videos "So 80s" after the launch of this channel. In December 2005, "VH1 Classic Europe" featured thematic programs with clips from the 80s:

  • The 80s Alternative - Alternative and obscure videos from the '80s.
  • The 80s Chilled - Laid back music from the '80s.
  • The 80s Danced - Dance music from the '80s.
  • The 80s Partied - Disco, funk and party music from the '80s.
  • The 80s Popped - Pop music from the '80s.
  • The 80s Rocked - Rock music from the '80s.
  • The 80s Years - A selection of music videos from one particular year of the '80s.

On September 4, 2006, the program with music videos from the '80s "So 80s" was renamed to the new name of this program – "We Are The 80s". In 2007, "VH1 Classic Europe" featured a morning program with 80s music videos - "The 80s At 8" - from 8:00 to 9:00 CET. On July 1, 2012, "VH1 Classic Europe" closed the theme programs with music videos from the 80s and the morning program with music videos from the 80s "The 80s At 8". In April 2015, "VH1 Classic Europe" featured a marathon of '80s music videos – "Nothing But The 80s", which was released every three weeks – on weekends. On January 8, 2018, another program appeared on "VH1 Classic Europe" - "80s Boys vs 80s Girls". At the end of June 2018, "VH1 Classic Europe" closed the program "80s Boys vs 80s Girls", and in September of this year – a marathon of music videos of the 80s – "Nothing But The 80s". In April 2020, "VH1 Classic Europe" closed the program with music videos from the 80s "We Are The 80s" in connection with the move of a new music channel with music videos from the 80s "MTV 80s" on the frequency of this channel, where previously broadcast on the frequency "MTV Classic UK".

After starting

From February 28 to March 31, 2020, "MTV 80s" temporarily replaced "MTV Classic UK" channel but was never planned as a fulltime replacement. From April 2020 until' October 2020, "VH1 Classic Europe" broadcast a block of "MTV 80s" programming from midnight until midday. On October 5, 2020 at 6:00 CET, "MTV 80s" took over from "VH1 Classic Europe". The final song broadcast was "Born to Run" by Bruce Springsteen.

Expansion of the broadcast area

Since July 6, 2020, "MTV 80s" broadcasts in New Zealand around the clock replacing "MTV Classic Australia".

On October 5, 2020, "MTV 80s" expanded its broadcast area to Latin America and the Caribbean.

The format of the channel

Since its launch, "MTV 80s" has been broadcasting the format of the British music channel "Now 80s". Unlike the "Now 80s" channel, "MTV 80s" broadcasts without announcements and without commercial advertising.
