Get MTVU. It has music videos 24/7.
I wouldn't mind having MTVU on the DirecTV lineup, but I've given up hope on MTV ever again playing music videos. The college-and-under crowd that MTV clamps down upon has never known what MTV used to be like before The Hills, Made and the Real World/Road Rules Challenge marathons ran repeatedly. But quite frankly, they don't need that 24/7 music video option, nor do they care about it. Between all the choices on the Internet, any music video ever made is usually watchable at the drop of a hat.
In a viral, get-it-when-I-want-it market, the necessity isn't even there for bands to have their videos playing on MTV. It's too bad, I think, but I guess it's just how life changes.
But some consistency on the HD programming would be nice...
