Juice TV is a music television station channel operating from the Auckland suburb of Parnell in New Zealand.

Juice TV started out as programming on Orange, a channel which was broadcast on SKY Network Television's UHF pay television network. In 1997 it became a full time station on SKY's DTH satellite service.

In recent times Juice TV has undergone a revamp with new hosts and on screen look. This is presumably to keep audiences watching in the face of competition from other music orientated channels such as Alt TV, C4 and the more recently launched MTV.

Previous hosts have included Clare and Andy P (7-9pm weekdays), Virg le Brun (4-7pm weekdays), Haimona Ngata (12-2pm weekdays), Geoffrey Bell (7pm weekdays), Justin Brown, Glenn Paul, Bruce Earwaker, Amber, and Dayna Vawdrey. All continue in the industry in various on-screen and behind the scenes roles.

The operators of Juice TV also produce 63 - Our Music TV, a music video only station that is targeted at an older audience. 63 began broadcasting as J2 in October 2000 and moved to 24 hour operation in April 2001. On May 1st 2008, J2 was rebranded as 63 - Our Music TV.

Both stations use an automated Omneon Spectrum media server playout system to operate 24 hours a day and are funded by advertising paying no access fees for carrige on SKY's platform.

In 2000 New Zealand on Air were in discussions with Juice Music Television to get Juice TV broadcasting free-to-air on a UHF network that covered most metropolitan and many regional centres across New Zealand. The plan hinged on securing unused frequencies such as the unused UHF network held by Television New Zealand. The plan did not happen.
