MTV Music (formerly VIVA) was a Polish 24h music and entertainment channel from Viacom International Media Networks Polska. The channel was officially launched on June 10, 2000 by the German VIVA Media AG.

History

On July 17, 2012 VIVA Poland switched to 16:9 picture format and started to use the new logo. Since then VIVA has broadcast more reality programmes like Excused. Until July 17, 2012 the channel has broadcast FTA on Eutelsat Hot Bird 13A.

In 2014, the station cancelled local production programmes.

In 2015 - 2017, the station cancelled all reality programmes and continued playing only electronic dance music. Before the new broadcast schedule, the station was playing Polish and international pop, dance, rock and hip hop music.

On 17 October 2017, the channel was rebranded into MTV Music in 12:12.

The channel, along with VH1, closed on 3 March 2020, and replaced by MTV Music 24. The final music video played on the channel was "You Should Be Sad" by Halsey.
