…and Haysi Fantayzee and Sigue Sigue Sputnik - so, it wasn’t all quality. 😄
Yes, the British post-punk bands (New Romantics, New Wave, etc.) definitely got a lot of viewing everywhere because of MTV.
The thing is MTV did a much better job covering new acts than the radio did in the US at that time. If you didn’t have a college radio station nearby, you missed a lot of good new music, even by quality domestic acts (e.g., R.E.M.). So, thank you again, MTV (when it was still properly MTV)!
