Music Channel is a Romanian music television channel, opened on May 28, 2008. On January 1, 2010 was launched a version in Hungary.[1] Music Channel came to prominence as the first Romanian TV station to host Live streaming on the internet.[2] The TV station is known for hosting the yearly Romanian Music Awards[3] Unlikely to MTV Romania and Kiss TV, the station is more genre-broadcasting, dividing its airplay into the four most prominent music genres — pop, rock, urban and dance, much in the likes of UTV. Noteworthy, Music Channel is known for also airing Latin pop, adult contemporary, J-pop and K-pop among other genres that don't receive significant airplay from other music stations. Compared by many to VH1, the TV station conceived many Top-Tens and Top-100s and starting late-November they start playing Christmas music.

Its sister channel, H!t Music Channel was launched on September 1, 2011.[4] Its closure was announced on 27 June 2022, citing loss-making operations as the reason for the decision, along with its other sister channels.[5]
