    Because people really don’t watch live tv anymore. And ever since youtube happened people can just watch whatever music video they want at any time. So music videos on TV are a thing of the past now.

    I don’t think they want to change the name and lose viewers

    my guess is they'd lose ratings if they changed their name cus 'MTV' is a pretty big brand name, people know it
