Multishow

Multishow is an entertainment channel owned by Globosat, Grupo Globo's cable and satellite television channel operator. It was launched in 1991, as one of the company's first four channels (with Telecine, Top Sport – now SporTV – and GNT). A high-definition simulcast was launched on December 15, 2012, at 11:59 pm Brazilian Summer Time (UTC-02), with a live telecast of a Rolling Stones concert at the Prudential Center.[1]

On October 1, 2009, Multishow launched its HDTV channel, Multishow HD. Like other HD channels owned by Globosat at the time (such as Globosat HD, Telecine HD and Premiere FC/Combate HD), instead of being a simulcast of the main channel, it featured a separate, mostly music-oriented lineup, with concerts, documentaries and other music-related programming, but most concerts also air in SD on the main channel. Until the launch of Multishow HD, all of Multishow's HD content aired on Globosat HD, which still broadcasts Multishow's non-music high-definition programming, and some music programs. On August 27, 2012, in anticipation to the launch of a high-definition simulcast of Multishow, Multishow HD was renamed provisionally Bis Multishow HD ("bis" is the Brazilian term for "encore") and later, on November 2012, renamed as simply Bis. The music-oriented programming of the channel remained mostly unchanged.

TriviaEdit

  • All foreign-language songs featured on foreign programming and on music videos are subtitled in Portuguese.
