VH1 (Danish TV channel)
VH1 is music channel targeting Danish adults in the ages 25–50.
|Launched||15 March 2008|
|Owned by||MTV Networks Europe|
|Headquarters||Stockholm, Sweden / London, UK|
The channel launched on March 15, 2008 at 10 p.m. In the analogue offer from the major cable network, Yousee, it replaced a timeshare between the channel's Pan-European equivalent VH1 Europe and the erotic channel Private Blue. The smaller cable network Stofa will also offer the channel. Both satellite distributors, Canal Digital and Viasat, will however not broadcast the Danish channel, continuing their relays of VH1 Europe instead.
Dedicated Danish programming for the channel is at the launch limited to a weekly chart show hosted by the radio personality Dan Rachlin. The rest of the schedule will be made up of music videos and content from various channels from MTV Networks.
Initially, the channel was broadcasting between 12 p.m. and 6 a.m. In the morning, Nickelodeon was broadcasting instead. At the start of 2009, Nickelodeon will get its own frequency in the YouSee network and VH1 will broadcast round-the-clock.
The channel will launch on the terrestrial Boxer platform on November 1, 2009.
The Danish broadcast is not available on satellite, as MTV Networks haven't made an agreement with Canal Digital and Viasat. Instead the Pan-European version is available on satellite for Danish viewers.
