NME TV was a British music television channel owned and operated by CSC Media Group (formerly Chart Show Channels). This was a similar arrangement to its radio station, NME Radio, which is operated by Town and Country Broadcasting. The channel replaced Minx on 22 November 2007. NME TV kicked off at 6.00am that day with "Up the Bracket" by The Libertines.

On 3 November 2010, NME TV was replaced with Scuzz on Freesat channel 503.[1] On 1 February 2011, NME TV relaunched on Freesat on channel 516.

NME TV closed on 5 January 2012 and was replaced with Chart Show TV +1,[2] with "No Good (Start the Dance)" by The Prodigy the final music video to be played on the channel. Chart Show TV +1 acted as a placeholder until the launch of BuzMuzik in May 2012.
