MTV Ukraine (Ukrainian: MTV Україна) was a Ukrainian free-to-air television music channel operated by GDF Media Limited under licence from VIMN Europe. The channel was launched on 24 August 2007, 6:00 a.m. and was replaced on 31 May 2013 by a new youth-orientated music and general entertainment channel called Zoom.[2]

Channel rebrand[edit]

On 31 May 2013 the operators of MTV in Ukraine, 'GDF Media' announced that the channel would cease operating from 23:00 on 31 May 2013 and would be rebranded as Zoom.[2] The decision to replace MTV with a new channel was decided by GDF Media, as the owners of the licence to operate the Ukrainian version of MTV felt the brand is no-longer relevant to the demographic the channel is targeting. The decision to replace MTV Ukraine with Zoom came shortly after MTV Russia was closed down as a free-to-air television network and relaunched on pay television.
