I just saw on another forum that MTV is bidding for the slot!
Is this true??

If they do win will they show the same progs as on sky.
I would love MTV on Freeview, would anyone else?

is there any chance of them winning??

The MTV in question will be MTV Networks, the tv company in charge of a whole host of TV Channels including TMF, MTV and VH1. Nobody will know what they intend to do with the space if they are successful (which they won't be), but the likelihood of them broadcast MTV on Freeview is very, very slim, especially while TMF is on the same platform.

Thanks For The Info,
Still there must be a little hope of them winning
i just hope that ITV, BBC and TUTV do not win it

Waste of space

MTV uk. This channel would be yet another headbanging,cyber skating gothic hybrid of its counter part channels.Who wants MTV? There must be a reason.It is useless and boring.TMF way better.Unfortunately as I am a Freesat viewer I would have to pay for the privelage.

MTV would be a disaster waiting to happen if the rumours are true that it could launch on Freeview!
I used to subscribe to Sky and the only decent thing on was Happy Tree Friends.But now I am bored of the same stupid tunes.

In my opinion there is very little chance of MTV coming to Freeview.

MTV has gone downhill rapidly in the last few years... I remember watching it on ONdigital when I was still at school and it was great then... it just lacks variety now because every genre has it's own dedicated channel and MTV just seems to have been dumped in the tv nursing home... to be honest, with TMF we already have MTV... just without the crap bits.

I am surprised no one has requested for POP.It has decent videos and some of them are quite catchy.

There is also a second POP channel.Both are free and it could be a good thing on Freeview.Kids entertainment has been limited on Freeview as it seems that the lineup has a strong mature audience certificate.Since the BBC decide to get rid of Animadness and Animarathon.For kids on Freeview there is little that the BBC can truly offer.No cartoons.Like having no food in the fridge

Agree 100%. Rather let five win the slot, so they can have a chance to grow. If abc1 improved their 24 hour programming i wouldnt mind Disney winning either, but if the programming stay the same, rather not.

Well I'm all up for seeing vh1 on freeview, the hits and tmf are both aimed at a similiar audience as MTV are they not so wouldn't it make sense to launch something aimed at a different audience. I love watching vh1 but don't get to see it as only my mates have it on cable.

I hope that TUTV, Sit-Up and the toher shopping group don't get it

Shopping and pay-tv aren't what we need

And id like to see MTV but i dont think it'll happen.

I also think five should focus on five, as it is the one of the main channels that I never watch, and I think many never watch it. Ive not watched it since it switched from "Channel 5" to "five"

If MTV want's to be shown on freeview, then they'd just swap MTV for TMF, the way Sky 3 replaced Sky travel.
The rumour when freeview started was that TMF was just a placeholder for MTV.
