If you grew up in the nineties, or the naughties – you’ll definitely know all about Channel [V].

It was the channel that brought us the latest and greatest in Aussie music and news – and provided a foundation for Aussie music fans to the artists.

Now, FOXTEL have released a statement saying that they plan to get rid of the iconic Channel [V] by merging it with [V] Hits.

It may not seem like a big change, but the channel that launched the careers of James Mathieson, Osher Gundsberg, Danny and Clayton and Yumi Stynes will no longer feature the editorials and features that they’ve long been known for.

It’s the Aussie music equivalent to taking ‘Hey Hey it’s Saturday’ off air – and a sad day for Aussies everywhere.

“We are making some changes to our music channels on Foxtel,” the company statement said.

“Starting from this Saturday, February 27 you will begin to see some changes to Channel [V].

“Following on from that, from March 25 we will no longer use the Channel [V] brand, which will change to [V] Hits and [V] Hits +2.

“[V] Hits features a line-up of music videos and countdowns, including the latest hits from Australia and around the world. There are no changes to MAX, CMC or Smooth.”
