Question When did MTV stop playing music videos

And where did people watch music videos before VEVO if it was way before VEVO? VEVO didnít exist until the end of 2009. How did people watch entire music videos in the early-mid 2000s?

Meanwhile, some people say MTV stopped playing music videos in the late '90s while others say it was in the early to mid 2000s. Supposedly in the year 2000, MTV played videos for 8 hours a day. But by 2008, they played videos only 3 hours each day.

Late 2000s when the original TRL was on the verge of fading out of MTV Programming schedule during the show's decay years.

Since the birth of Youtube and Pandora and the popularity of MP3 song downloads MTV soon realized that the time of music videos had come to an end and so after the cancellation of TRL MTV started to move on to focus on other types of programming. MTV already had hits with animated cartoons such as Daria and had the pop culture classic game show Remote Control and the other game shows Lip Service and Singled Out but ever since the debut of their first reality show The Real World that showed that MTV was headed toward a new direction and so if it wasn't for The Real World we wouldn't have shows like My Super Sweet 16 Jersey Shore Teen Mom and other reality shows continue to exist on MTV. But back when MTV had music videos it opened a whole new way of listening to music and learning about the newest hit albums. And so with music videos from artists like Eddie Money Michael Jackson The Cars Rod Stewart Rick Springfield Elton John Paula Abdul Janet Jackson and Duran Duran MTV soon had a huge fan following but when hip hop and rap and R&B became huge in the 90's MTV had played music videos from rap and R&B artists like R. Kelly Mary J. Blige Usher Toni Braxton Naughty By Nature Warren G. and Boyz II Men MTV was still hugely popular but as I mentioned earlier once TRL was cancelled music videos had said bye bye to MTV and if you look at MTV today they should change their name to Movie Television because when you look at their schedule MTV constantly plays movies and it seems that the only movies that MTV is obsessed with are Tyler Perry movies like Madea's Family Reunion and they should cut down on movies and add more music programming like classic Soul Train reruns or have a Star Search like reality show and of course add a midnight morning and afternoon music video show and have a top 20 countdown show of the best top 20 music videos for the month and MTV would go back to it's music roots with this formula
