Nirvana, Alice In Chains, & Oasis To Kickstart ‘MTV Classic’ Channel


As reported yesterday, Monday will see the rebranding of VH1 Classic as “MTV Classic”, a network dedicated to airing content from the golden years of MTV, including Unplugged, Beavis and Butthead, Daria, and Total Request Live.

Taken from Time Warner Cable’s schedule for the first day of the new network, you can expect to see a 90’s-heavy first day of programming following the “MTV Hour One” special at noon (all times EST). Want to have some extra fun while watching? Get started with mobile bingo.
