Club MTV (formerly MTV Dance) is an Australian pay television channel that broadcasts dance and urban music. It was launched on 3 December 2013.[2]


On 29 October 2013, MTV announced they had been working with Foxtel since early 2013 to offer more diversity on the Foxtel platform, as their two current music dedicated channels - MTV Classic and MTV Hits - fought for the same audience as Foxtel Networks channels MAX and [V] Hits respectively.[3] As such, it was decided that MTV Classic and MTV Hits would cease broadcasting on the Foxtel platform to be replaced by two new MTV channels. The channel to replace MTV Classic was MTV Dance, a channel dedicated to dance, hip hop, and R&B music from around the world - MTV's first channel to be dedicated to three different genres of music.[3]

On 1 July 2020, the channel rebranded as Club MTV, inline with its pan-European edition and UK & Ireland edition.[4] The brand will also be extended to an uninterrupted, Stingray Music-powered Foxtel Tunes channel.[5]
