The 2015 Much Music Video Awards took place last night in Toronto and was simulcast live across Canada as a super event on Much and a slew of Bell Media’s channels including MTV, M3 and CTV Two. The buzzworthy award show has received global attention and would previously be simulcast in the U.S. on Fuse but as a progressive sign of the times, was broadcast live internationally on Much.ca.
