The name MTV3 comes from the words "Mainos-TV 3", which means "Commercial television". Number 3 because when MTV3 started airing it was the third nation-wide television channel.
MTV3 started on the 13 August 1957, and thus become the third-oldest, private, commercial television station in Europe. It started as just plain MTV as bits of programmes in a channel broadcast. It finally became a proper channel in 1993 and became MTV3.
