‘Why Doesn’t MTV Play Music Videos Anymore?’ Finally Answered
It's been a sarcastic question we've pondered for the past several years. Why is it that Mtv, which stands for Music Television, and used to provide non-stop music videos during our youth, no longer plays music videos? Not just that, but now it's filled with trashy TV shows? In a recent installment of 'Ask a Network Head', that answer was finally revealed.
Mostly safe for work. Words are censored - middle fingers are not
So, the answer, basically, money and ratings. If Mtv did play random music videos, would you still watch it? Now with inventions like YouTube and other streaming services that are on demand, I'm not sure I would. Sure, it's nice to experience new music this way, but when I want to watch something, I don't want to wait for it to, maybe, come on the air.
And now you know.
