"...day. On August 1st in 1981 MTV was born. It’s debut began at 12:01am playing Buggles’s ‘Video killed the radio star’. “I remember it was a few minutes till midnight…MTV was born in front of our eyes…video after video we watched” (MTV viewer) In the beginning, executives at MTV had problems with the cable distribution of the station. It could only be seen in a few cities. Even in New York, where ..." Read review

Poisoning A New Generation.

AdvantagesI recently lost my satellite connection, thus rendering me incapable of exposure to this cancer.

DisadvantagesMTV just plain sucks.

"...around the same time that MTV made its debut on cable television – however I believe that, between the two of us, I have the satisfaction of saying that I’m still just as good, cool, fresh, and original now as I was then. Too bad MTV can’t say the same thing about itself, isn’t it? Yes, I hate MTV. I think it is one of the large contributors to the brainwashing of today’s youth. They sit in front of the channel, watching ..." Read review

The clear definition of start/finish in TV programming schedules was broken ..." Read review

"I remember when MTV was THE music channel available on Sky or any other satellite system in England.

"MTV has got to be one of the best channels available on any of the digital television services, mine being the SKY equivalent. MTV is the big daddy of all the music channels which are becoming more and more popular. This has been recently proven by the fact the BBC’s Top of the Tops has announced that it isn’t the ‘Number one anymore’ and that rateings are down. Yes, I can see why they are too, you can what all of the ..." Read review
