Remember how you felt when MTV became the ‘Non Music Television’? When all that we ended up with was watching an hour of music between 7-8am and then it was reality shows back to back? Then all our favorite adult cartoons started fading, and ‘The Real World’ just wasn’t the same anymore?
Well, there’s some great news! According to Rolling Stone, MTV is launching a new channel that’s going to have all of our favorite old school goodies on it! It’s rebranding VH1 Classic as ‘MTV Classic’ and it’ll include ‘Total Request Live’, ‘MTV Unplugged’, ‘Aeon Flux’, plus many more! On the weekends it’ll air marathons of shows like ‘The Real World’ and ‘Laguna Beach’.
It’s set to air on August 1st. Just 35 years after it’s first launch in 1981. You’ll be able to watch the first hour of ‘MTV Hour One’ live on their Facebook, it’ll be looking back at the history of MTV.
