MTV To CLOSE DOWN In Australia For One Big Reason

MTV Australia is set to cease all scheduled programming tomorrow, 24th August between 6am and 6 PM as they encourage Australians to enrol to vote before the deadline for The Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey.


MTV, MTV Music, MTV Classic and MTV Dance channels across Foxtel and Fetch will shut down normal broadcast and instead play a special message encouraging people to enrol.

The MTV.com.au website will also display an LGBTQ editorial takeover and host links to enrol at http://www.aec.gov.au/enrol/

“As a leading youth entertainment brand that supports inclusiveness and equal rights for all Australians, MTV wants to encourage young Australians to get out and do their part in ensuring their voices are heard in the Australian Marriage Law postal vote,” said Simon Bates, Head of MTV Asia Pacific.

Enrolment closes Midnight (Local Time) Thursday 24 August 2017.
