MTV Philippines has been displaying this ticker since yesterday:
“This channel (MTV Philippines) will cease airing starting Feb 16, 2010. Further updates to be announced at a later date”

The network’s official twitter account confirmed the news yesterday:

From this forum

MTV Philippines will close because Francis Lumen, the president of AYC decided not to renew the license for MTV Philippines.

There were also some posts saying that instead of funding for MTV Philippines, they will support TV5 instead which they plan to be the next big thing on TV.

The closure is in effect nationwide and regardless of pay-tv company.

Well…I’ll miss seeing Andi9 on TV. I hope they still manage to be on TV despite this loss. I’ll watch out ’til 12 midnight tonight.

    we all know that in cable tv, there are two major music channels that competed, MTV philippines and MYX. To be honest, i liked them both. Each of them had their unique chars. that made me watch them. MYX have their vjs and lyrics, ang MTV have their good ol’ clean MVs and vj andi haha. Ill never forget you MTV. Thanks you. This is my tribute.
