AT-X (アニメシアターX Anime Shiatā X?, lit. "Anime Theater X") is a Japanese anime television network owned by AT-X, Inc. (株式会社エー・ティー・エックス Kabushiki kaisha Ē-Tī-Ekkusu?). AT-X, Inc. was founded on June 26, 2000 as a subsidiary of TV Tokyo Medianet, which, in turn, is a subsidiary of TV Tokyo. Its headquarters are in Minato, Tokyo. AT-X network has been broadcasting anime via satellite and cable since December 24, 1997.

Their slogan is Wan ranku-jō no anime senmon chan'neru (ワンランク上のアニメ専門チャンネル lit. "Anime Specialty Channels Up a Notch"?).

AT-X is always the main channel for many Comic Gum Anime adaptions. Ikkitousen, Amaenaideyo!! and Fight Ippatsu! Juuden-chan! were shown on this channel first, before they were re-aired on "Tokyo-MX".[citation needed]

As a premium channel AT-X is also known for showing uncensored versions of several anime like Fight Ippatsu! Jūden-chan!!, Amaenaideyo!!, Girls Bravo, Elfen Lied and Mahoromatic, which would normally get censored on TV-stations like TV-Tokyo because of the large amount of nudity and other factors.[citation needed]
