With a dedicated bloc like Punjabi Beats, our line up becomes even more exciting for viewers. It will further strengthen our position as the most loved contemporary music channel in the country.”

Even during the lockdown phase when there was a complete halt on shoots of music videos, MTV Beats remained the go-to brand for music labels and artists and managed to capture and promote new songs and albums, thus striving hard in the lockdown. MTV Beats premiered six exclusive songs, while music properties like Fresh Beats and MTV Beats Discover premiered 13 and 12 new songs, respectively. The channel was also home to original programming amidst the lockdown and launched four properties namely MTV Beats Pyaar Karo Na, MTV Beats Sessions From Home, Dil Beats Lockdown Love with Darshan Raval and MTV Beats Baba Ki Chowki Lockdown Edition.
