Comedy Central Hungary is the Hungarian version of Comedy Central. The channel broadcasts comedy oriented shows.

History

The Hungarian broadcast version started on October 1, 2008.[1] The broadcast was initially timesharing with VH1 (which aired between 2:00 AM and 2:00 PM). Based on the viewership data of the first two months of 2009, the channel achieved an average audience share of approximately 0.4% in prime time viewing in the 18-49 age group.[2] From May 1, 2009, the channel began to broadcast 24 hours a day and also VH1 also returned broadcasting 24 hours a day.[3]

On July 15, 2010, Comedy Central came under the Czech media authority, so the age limits disappeared.[4]

In March 2011, the channel announced that the new image and logo could be seen in Hungary from April 1, 2011. The logo changed once again on June 4, 2019.[5]
