Viacom International Media Network announced the introduction of a non-stop music channel in January 2011. As the main MTV brand has deviated from its original purpose and increased competition from other music channels and online services, MTV addressed this issue by launching a new music channel MTV Music. The channel launched on 1 February 2011 in both the United Kingdom and Ireland.[1] The channel replaced MTV Shows.

On the 1 February 2011, on Sky UK and Sky Ireland, MTV and MTV Shows swapped positions in the EPG where MTV became part of the Entertainment channels and MTV Shows was moved to the Music channels and renamed MTV Music. MTV Shows programming was transferred to MTV, while MTV Music was dedicated to playing music videos, similarly like its sister channels MTV Base, MTV Classic, MTV Dance, MTV Hits, MTV Rocks and MTV Live.

MTV Music began broadcasting in widescreen in the UK & Ireland on 28 March 2012. On 15 February 2016, MTV Music +1 launched in the UK on Sky channel 358, replacing the standard-definition version of MTV Live HD. Following the closures of MTV OMG, MTV Rocks and Club MTV on 20 July 2020, MTV Music broadcasts a weekly chart based on MTV Rocks programming on Sundays. The timeshift channel also closed as part of this change, along with the timeshifts for MTV and Comedy Central Extra.

On 8 September 2022 at 22:00 BST, MTV Music (alongside with MTV Hits, MTV 80s, MTV 90s in the United Kingdom/Ireland and MTV Live in Europe, MENA, Latin America, and Asia) temporarily suspended its regularly scheduled programming, due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II. As a result of the suspension of regular programming on all of MTV's music channels in the United Kingdom, two music video programmes were created in order to fill the gap, one being "Programming Pause" (which it was broadcast from 8 September 2022 at 22:55 until 10 September 2022 at 06:00 BST) and the other being "Nothing but Music" (which it was broadcast from 10 September 2022 at 06:00 BST until 13 September 2022 at 06:00 BST). Both of these programmes played laid back and sombre music videos. Regular programming for all of MTV's music channels in the United Kingdom/Ireland were resumed on 13 September 2022 at 06:00 BST, while MTV Live resumed its regularly scheduled programing 4 hours earlier at 02:00 BST.

On 19 September 2022, all of MTV's music channels in the United Kingdom/Ireland temporarily suspended its regularly scheduled programming (including teleshopping programmes) and it was replaced with the music programme "Nothing but Music" (also known "Nothing but Hits" on MTV Hits, "Nothing but 80s" on MTV 80s and "Nothing but 90s" on MTV 90s) on that day, due to the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
