Change in format

MTV Networks Europe originally launched separate MTV channels in Lithuania (MTV Lietuva) and Latvia (MTV Latvija) in September 2006. Both channels offered a mixture of local and international content. Due to the global recession and its impact on Latvia, MTV Networks Baltic merged both channels to form MTV Lietuva & Latvija this channel will operate for the foreseeable future until the economic crisis is rectified.[4] MTV Lietuva & Latvija and MTV Estonia ceased operations on November 18, 2009 and have been replaced by the original MTV Europe channel.
