MTV Live HD, the first ever international high definition service dedicated to music, offers a mix of programming from MTV. MTV Live HD is operated by MTVNI's Emerging Markets group, who produce and broadcast the channel from its Warsaw hub. The English-language service also features original and acquired shows, and programming from MTVNI's multi-branded library.
The channel's mix of programming includes shows produced by other international MTV production units in Southern Europe, the UK and Latin America.

From July 1, 2011 the channel began to focus primarily on live music programming.
