Razer to become MTV2

Starting Aug. 1, CTV is “rebranding” its Razer specialty channel (which had the occasional Buffy episode, but little else of interest to anyone over 12) to MTV2, which I can only imagine will make it suck more.

The move completes the transition of the specialty network from a youth-oriented TV network to a youth-oriented music TV channel in the same family as MuchMusic, MuchMoreMusic etc.

    Well I’m happy. I liked MTV2 because it’s all video and I was P-Oed when it was turned into a crappy MuchMusic all request station.

    Didn’t Razer begin its life as “MTV Canada”, when Craig owned a piece of it, but CTV didn’t? Then the vagaries of media ownership in Canada forced a name change… but now things are coming full circle.

    When I lived in Europe, MTV2 UK was fantastic, playing 90% music videos and had BBC’s (may be somewhere else now) Zane Low as VJ who really played good music. If it is anything like that, I would be happy.
