Roblox Music Television, more commonly referred to as RMT, was a Robloxian music television channel owned by Gavent Networks. In addition to a rotation of music videos, the channel was also set to include programming from its sister channel GTV in its schedule.
The channel was acquired by rTV Networks upon the closure of Gavent Networks on March 31, 2017, who operated it through their rTV Networks Gavent subsidiary until they closed the channel and replaced it with Viva Roblox on April 11, 2017.
In the wake of the launch of several music channels, such as a repositioning of RPN and the launch of MixTV, AGavent wanted to launch a music channel for his company, Gavent Television Group (later Gavent Networks). On January 25, 2014, GTG announced hitPLAYtv. On January 27, 2014, it was confirmed as a GTG channel, and was officially added to GTG's family of networks. On June 7, 2014, the channel was rebranded and renamed as RMN; however, due to copyright issues, the channel was renamed to RMT on June 9, 2014.
On January 26, 2015, RMT announced it's first original series, TOP10TOPPER. Along with the announcement, a logo and set for the show was released. On January 29, 2016, RMT and its sister channel GTV were added to the 3view platform, followed by Hexahedron Direct the next day. The two were later removed from the latter service, due to platform owner DragonDipperBlossom's departure. When he returned, however, so did the two networks to the platform. GTV and RMT were later removed from 3view and Hexahedron Direct following their closures, but joined LavaCable soon after (now Amicable).
On March 31, 2017, AGavent closed Gavent Networks and left the Robloxian television industry (he would return to start a production company two weeks later). In closing the company, he gave the former company's properties to others in the industry. RMT, along with its sister channel RMTEDM and two of Gavent Networks' other channels, were acquired by rTV Networks, who incorporated them into the newly-relaunched rTV Networks Gavent subsidiary. rTVN decided to close RMT, although it retains the rights to the brand, and replace the channel with its own music channel, Viva Roblox, which launched on April 11, 2017.
The channel featured 3 programming blocks -- two airing music, and one airing in primetime.
RMTVotes was set to feature hand-picked music from viewers' votes. The block would have aired on weekends from 3-4pm ET.
RMTHits would have featured popular music, airing on weekends from 4pm-6pm ET, as well as 6pm-8pm ET on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
