MTV (Canada) 2013


MTV in Toronto

MTV is a Canadian-English language cable television channel owned by Media Bell with its name licensed from the American channel MTV, which is owned by MTV Networks, a division of Viacom. MTV aired the second, third, and fourth blocks of Season 13 as well as Season 14 of Degrassi.

The channel launched as talktv in 2000, but was not as widely available prior to its relaunch as MTV in March 2006. Unlike MTV channels in the U.S. and elsewhere, the channel is restricted in its ability to carry music videos and other music programming due to conditions in the channel's licence issued by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), thus it never used the tagline "Music Television" as did its international counterparts prior to 2010. MuchMusic, now a sister channel of the Canadian MTV channel, had been launched in 1984 as the Canadian channel dedicated to mainstream music.
