Fetch TV and Paramount Australia today announced they have reached an agreement on a long-term extension of their channel partnership which will see a slew of new and current channels delivered to Fetch TV’s audience.

The partnership will expand to add MTV 90s and MTV 00s as two new genre-based music channels, and will see MTV Classic rebranded as MTV 80s to complete the deep dive into the decadent decades of music.
