Comedy Central Poland
VH1 Poland was a Polish music channel from Viacom International Media Networks Polska. It was launched on December 1, 2005, replacing MTV Classic, another Polish MTV channel which used to broadcast mainly classic videos. VH1 Poland shows almost only music-based programs and plays a much broader range of videos than its predecessor. Many themed music programs were broadcast on a daily or weekly basis. On February 1, 2017, the Polish feed was replaced by European feed with local ads.
As VH1 Poland (December 1, 2005-February 1, 2017)
VH1 Poland was launched on December 1, 2005, replacing MTV Classic Poland.
From April 24, 2010, VH1 Poland ceased to operate as a 24-hour music channel and instead share space with the new Comedy Central branded channel Comedy Central Family. The new channel line-up became more skewed towards female audiences. On 16 September 2010 it was completely replaced with European feed. On April 24, 2012, VH1 Poland started broadcasting again replacing VH1 Europe (only in Poland). On June 12, 2012, VH1 Poland started broadcasting in 16:9 picture format. On September 30, 2015, VH1 Poland began to use the current branding from VH1 Europe and UK. However, the music on those idents were changed, plus, a title of each programme were added at the start of each programme.
As a Polish subfeed of VH1 Europe (February 1, 2017-May 1, 2018)
On February 1, 2017 (at 6:00AM CET), the localised Polish feed of VH1 has been merged operations with VH1 Europe from Camden Town, London, United Kingdom, due to the programming change and informing viewers on the upper-left corner showing that Rise And Shine With VH1 will be next after the last programme on the localised Polish feed (100% Music). The last music video to be played on the localised Polish feed is Can't Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Ray Dalton at 5:59AM CET. The first music video to be played when the localised Polish feed of VH1 switched its own programming to VH1 Europe's programming is Million Reasons by Lady Gaga. While the playlist and the on-air identity (except for the advertising bumpers) has been largely changed, the on-screen graphics are still intact. Unlike the main feed of VH1 Europe (which is commercial-free), the Polish subfeed has advertisements.
