It was launched in 1996 as the Indian version of MTV and is owned by Viacom18, under a license agreement with Paramount Networks EMEAA.

In 2014, Viacom 18 launched Pepsi MTV Indies, an indie music and subculture channel in partnership with Pepsi Co.[3]

In 2016, MTV Indies was replaced by MTV Beats, a 24-hour music-only channel. After its launch, MTV India changed its focus on broadcasting reality series.[4]

VH1 India airs the international productions of MTV instead of airing them on MTV India, along with international music.
