History

Club [V]

Club [V] logo

One of the 20 new channels introduced as part of Foxtel's new digital service, Club [V] was the name of what is now known as [V] Hits. It focused particularly on dance music and was originally, (like most sister cable channels) ad-free.[2]



Channel [V]2

The new name and format of Club [V] was launched on January 12, 2007. In the lead-up to the switch, a message was frequently broadcast on the channel, promising viewers that "A Change is Coming". Since the re-launch, Channel V and Channel [V]2 had become more closely tied in with each other for example showing viewers what is currently playing on the opposite channel. Both Channels used the same format for displaying song information. Even though the channels are tied-in with each other, Channel [V]2 does not play any entertainment oriented shows, instead playing ads for them.

[V] Hits

On November 15 2009, [V]2 relaunched as [V] Hits. [V] Hits is a 24 hour music channel focusing on hit music.

Format

Throughout the day, [V] Hits holds several countdowns based on certain themes. A large number of the countdowns are Top 22 charts based on ratings from country to country. Much larger countdowns can be seen for special occasions, such as the Top 50, Top 100 and Top 200.

In January 2010, [V] Hits aired the "10,000 Hits" countdown, believed to be the largest of its kind ever undertaken.
