If you thought you saw the MTV music awards coming, it’s time to stop waiting.
The network is reportedly planning to launch an online streaming service in the coming years, which would essentially be a new MTV streaming platform, according to MTV News.
The news comes on the heels of a new report from Variety that MTV CEO Dave Chappelle has been discussing a new music service that will eventually be used to stream music to devices such as Apple TV, Roku and other streaming devices.
If true, this would represent the first time that MTV has actually taken the plunge to offer a music service.
While it’s still too early to know what this new service will look like, it would likely include a host of services, including the music streaming platform that Chappell has been hinting at.
While MTV has been releasing its streaming services on a limited basis for some time now, it now seems like a new platform is coming to the network.
A lot of that comes down to the fact that music is one of the biggest areas of growth for the network over the past few years.
According to MTV, MTV is now worth $1.5 billion, with over $900 million of that being earned in the first three months of 2016.
That’s up from a year ago, when the network had a reported $500 million in revenue.
It seems like an uphill battle for MTV to keep up with the music industry, and with so many services competing for that revenue, it could be a tough fight.
That said, it may be possible that the network could launch its new service sometime in 2018, and it would probably be free for subscribers to use.
For now, though, it looks like we’re getting our first look at what a new streaming service could look all about.
