In the winter of 2005, F. Stone Roberts (director and producer), Agent Ogden (editor and post supervisor), Colin Oberschmidt (director of photography), Sonia Taylor (production assistant), and George Oliphant (VJ) took residence in mtvU. Olympic bump skier, pro football player, Jeremy Bloom was a guest VJ during the original run in Vail. Original concerts produced at Vail Resorts included James Blunt, Jamie Cullum, Yellowcard, Train, P.O.D, Hoobastank, Goo Goo Dolls, Gary Allan, The Fray, Death Cab For Cutie, and Mat Kearney.

The network officially launched on January 16, 2006 as Music: High Definition (MHD). At its debut, the channel had limited distribution with Atlanta.

Charter Communications began carrying the channel on its St. Louis system on July 18, 2006, adding the channel to its systems in the northern Midwest in early November of that year. Time Warner Cable began carrying the channel in some regions in late December 2006. In 2007, Service Electric Cable Television began to carry the channel on its systems in northeastern and central Pennsylvania. On October 4, 2007, DirecTV began carrying the network nationwide. Initially, Mitsubishi Electric Digital Televisions became the exclusive sponsor of Palladia and continues to partially sponsor them to this day. The channel changed its name to Palladia on September 1, 2008.


Specials formerly broadcast on Palladia included the HD simulcasts of the MTV Europe Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, CMT Music Awards and VH1 Hip Hop Honors. As carriage of the MTV, CMT and VH1 HD simulcast networks expanded, these programs became exclusive to their parent channel's HD broadcast streams.

Like other channels in the MTV Networks division, music video programming is confined exclusively to the early morning hours each day (6-9 a.m. ET), and has decreased as more acquired programming has been added to the schedule.
