History: DanceTrippin TV began in 2000 as a grass roots project to qualitatively capture the spirit and musical essence of dj performances at clubs and festivals. It soon began broadcasting its content during the night hours of TEF local Ibiza TV which led it to gain access to world famous Ibiza clubs and DJs. In 2008 it launched its TV Channel and was eventually picked up by the Dutch cable operator Ziggo. DanceTrippin TV could previously be received by satellite as well; the channel was available free-to-air on the Astra 3 and Astra 4 satellites. But in June 2013 it ceased its satellite transmission. In May 2018 the content platform was renamed by DanceTelevision, and repositioned as a network of highly targeted content brands in order to more effectively reach an increasingly fragmented audience. As of May 2019 DanceTelevision has produced over 700 DJ shows which are available through the platform, in addition to works from external and independent creators.
