TMF rebranded as VIVA

TMF was rebranded as VIVA yesterday. The new name change has come into effect on the Freeview EPG and on Virgin Media. You may need to rescan your Freeview box to get the new channel name, but you should continue to see the channel with the old TMF name without rescanning. VIVA is available on Freeview channel 21, Virgin Media channel 313 and Sky. VIVA is owned by MTV Networks so features many MTV programmes as well as music videos. Please see the official VIVA website for more information.

TMF to rebrand as VIVA soon

MTV-owned channel TMF will rebrand as VIVA. The channel – available on Freeview, cable and Sky – will be available on Freeview channel 21, Virgin Media channel 313 and Sky channel 358. The official website for VIVA just states it’s “coming soon” with no launch date mentioned yet. Check out their official website for a (mildly annoying) promo video.

16th October update: The official website now says the launch date will be the 26th October.
