8 classic MTV shows you can binge-watch for free right now

10 October 2018

In today's hyper-connected world, it's never been easier to watch your fav shows. Whether you're staying in to veg, or for your long journey on public transport, the access is unprecedented. Now we're adding even more to your entertainment arsenal.

MTV Play – a mobile app that we've rolled out in Singapore – features dozens of MTV's classic and current TV shows, plus music goodies like MTV Meets, MTV Jammin', Asia Spotlight and music video playlists. Watch it on your phone or tablet, wherever you are. (Download it free for your iOS or Android device, available only in Singapore for now.)

But what's good for a steady binge-athon? We've shortlisted 8 shows you should start watching right now.

Bugging Out

Miss the golden days of hidden-camera prank shows? The good news that it's far from dead, and Bugging Out is not one to miss.

Car Crash Couples

Relationships are built on a steady foundation of trust and cooperation, but Car Crash Couples tests that to its very core with an epic road trip for four pairs of contestants across Europe. If they can survive this, they can survive anything.


Clickbait takes you down the internet wormhole of all things music — from DJs trolling the audience, to birds doing the moonwalk, to karaoke in a flood and a chicken singing for its life.

Dare To Live

Rory Kramer is a videographer for some of the biggest names in music, and he's also an ardent thrill-seeker — in Dare To Live, he brings along some of his music friends on an ongoing whirlwind adventure, where Steve Aoki takes the plunge to surf with sharks and Iggy Azalea tries her hand at the sport of polo.

Boiling Points

In the realms of prank shows, there's nothing that can push the limits of unwilling contestants quite like Boiling Points, and you'll get to see just how much certain people can handle real-life ridiculousness — even a pre-fame Lady Gaga (above).


Full of wit and cynicism, she was the poster-child for a generation of teens in the 90s. With a revival series in the works, now's the best time to catch up on the slacker genius that is Daria.


The conflict, chaos, and cringiness that come with experiencing school life as a teenager is best encapsulated by Awkward, a show that displays just how accidents can sometimes work in your favour — even if you're not ready for it.


The show that became synonymous with a new kind of prank show — an irreverent, in-your-face version — Punk'd was nothing short of a phenomenon, and you can relive the Ashton Kutcher-led madness on MTV Play.
