VH1

VH-1 (stylized as VH+1) is a cable television network based in New York City. Launched on Tuesday, January 1, 1985 in the old space of Turner Broadcasting’s short-lived Cable Music Channel, the original purpose of the channel was to build on the success of MTV by playing music videos, but targeting a slightly older demographic than its sister channel, focusing on the lighter, softer side of popular music.
