HistoryEdit

On 31 July 2015 Sky Italia took over ownership of the free-to-air MTV Italy.[2] On 14 September 2015, MTV Italy was rebranded as MTV8 by Sky Italia.

On the same day, Viacom launched a new MTV-channel for Italy, MTV Next (now MTV), and is now only available as a subscription service on Sky. This ended an era where MTV Italy was available to the majority of homes across Italy free-to-air.[3] The Music-station of Viacom in Italy, MTV Music remained available free to air until 1 July 2016, when it moved to Sky Italia.

On 8 January 2016, Sky introduced new on-air graphics for MTV8 focusing on the number 8 and launched the channel's website.

On 18 February 2016, Sky changed the channel name to TV8.[4]

ProgrammingEdit

TV8's programming consists of reruns of comedy shows, crime shows, UEFA Europa League matches, MotoGP, Formula 1, Superbike World Championship and movies.
