A Viacom channel, launched in May of 2000, which shows music videos from approximately 1970 to 1994 and new videos and interviews with older artists. On most days, it plays twelve hours of programming from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and then repeats. It is generally considered a premium cable channel and not included in most basic packages. There is some concern among ardent video fans that it will move from the almost 24/7 music video format to reality shows, mostly caused by the same change in all other MTV networks, and promoted by recycling of Vh1
shows. Discussions about the channel (including criticism of non-video programming) and a meticulous daily playlist can be found at the forum on www.vh1classic.com under "Message Boards."
Did you see "Take on Me" by A-Ha on Vh1 Classic today? If you missed it, it's on again tonight. And just about every other day.
