MTV To Shut Down For A Day To Support #enrolforequality

MTV Australia will cease all regularly scheduled programming tomorrow to encourage Australians to enrol to vote or ensure their existing voting details are correctly listed with the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) before the deadline for The Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey.

Between 6am and 6pm on August 24, MTV, MTV Music, MTV Classic andMTV Dance channels across Foxtel and Fetch will shut down normal broadcast and instead play a special message encouraging people to enrol.

The website will also display an LGBTQ editorial takeover and host links to enrol at

“As a leading youth entertainment brand that supports inclusiveness and equal rights for all Australians, MTV wants to encourage young Australians to get out and do their part in ensuring their voices are heard in the Australian Marriage Law postal vote,” said Simon Bates, Head of MTV Asia Pacific.
