Musi-Video was a music video series that was shown in Canada from 1980 and 1984. It was syndicated to community channels all around Canada. It was a very early example of the format that was later used by MTV and MuchMusic.

The series was made by Marc Fontaine, who was part of the new wave pop group Nudimension. The series was produced in Montreal, and featured early 1980s music artists playing live in a studio, and early music videos.

In 2008 the Musi-Video brand was revived as a music publishing label by Marc Fontaine.
