MTV Australia will shut down on August 24 to encourage Australians to enrol to vote or change their details before the deadline for the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey.
From 6am to 6pm MTV, MTV Music, MTV Classic and MTV Dance channels on Foxtel and Fetch will ditch their usual programming and instead play a special message encouraging people to enrol to vote.
Their website will also feature an LGBTQ editorial takeover and links to enrol.
“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.
If you haven’t enrolled or need to update date your details you can do so right here until August 24.
