The channel ran for one hour a night on the Mirror Group 's L! VE TV cable circuit and after a year moved up to the Granada satellite and cable platform, taking a similar slot in the evening.
Although the original idea for the channel was proposed in three years after Kiss FM launched as a legal stationit took many months for Wingate to convince UK television regulators, The Independent Television Commission to permit the extension of a brand name over to television. When permission was finally granted, Kiss had once again innovated by becoming the first "Masthead" TV project in the UK.
Within one uj, the station was beating MTV in its time slots, and quickly gained a cult status for its low-budget edgy coverage of the UK dance music scene. By the time the channel was one year old, it had attracted major sponsorship from blue-chip brands such as Levi'sSony consumer products and The Guardian newspaper.
The channel is available on many digital television platforms. On 2 Aprilall Box Television channels went free-to-air on kids, apart from 4Music which went free-to-view.
