VH1 (originally an initialism of Video Hits One) is an American pay television network based in New York City owned by Viacom. It was originally created by Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment, at the time a division of Warner Communications and the original owner of MTV, and launched on January 1, 1985, in the former space of Turner Broadcasting System’s short-lived Cable Music Channel.

The original purpose of the channel was to build upon the success of MTV by playing music videos targeting a slightly older demographic than its sister channel, focusing on the lighter, softer side of popular music. Like MTV, VH1 ultimately drifted into reality television programming, albeit with a focus on music personalities and celebrities, and shows targeting female audiences. VH1 is best known for franchises such as Behind the Music, the I Love… series, the Celebreality block, and Love & Hip Hop.

As of January 2016, approximately 90.2 million US households receive VH1
