NOYZ was an American television network owned and operated by Seattle-based Blue Frog Media. The network aired mostly pop and hip-hop music videos which featured a continuing interactive chat on the bottom third of the screen, where members could talk using text messages transmitted to the network to be placed on air. Each message cost 99₵.
In addition to NOYZ, Blue Frog also established BULLA, a Hispanic music channel similar to NOYZ. BULLA was discontinued in December 2007 due to budget and staffing cuts .
The network aired beginning in 2007 overnights on the men's digital cable network MavTV, but as of January 10, 2008 that network discontinued airing it, possibly suggesting NOYZ has gone off-the-air. Shortly after, the network's website was taken offline, and currently leads to a domain parking page. Blue Frog Media had burned through $16 million of venture capital funding over three years and was unable to raise any more money, and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on February 1, 2008, with $1 million in liabilities from service providers, television stations and other creditors . Blue Frog had planned further expansion before their bankruptcy in 2008, using the funds from the shutdown of BULLA to establish Noyz Country (a country-oriented channel), and UR Noyz, which would focus on Christian music.
