MTV Adria

MTV Adria

MTV Adria, based in Ljubljana, Slovenia, is an MTV Networks Europe subsidiary of MTV, broadcasting to the countries of the former Yugoslavia.

The station started broadcasting on September 1, 2005, to Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Montenegro. The program targets primarily young urban adults.

The role of MTV Adria's musical editor is performed by Žiga Gombač, and 20% of the channel's airtime is reserved for content from the Yugoslav successor states.

MTV Adria is distributed through local cable providers as well as DTH satellite platforms such as Digi TV and TotalTV.
