FXX is a Canadian English-language Category B digital cable specialty channel devoted primarily to scripted comedies for young adults. It is based on the U.S. cable network of the same name. It launched on April 1, 2014, in standard definition and in high definition.[1][2]

History[edit]

It was reported that Rogers had plans to launch a Canadian version of FXX, a younger-skewing spinoff of FX.[3] Originally scheduled for January 2014, FXX's launch was later rescheduled to April 2014. As part of the launch of the channel, several shows which previously aired on FX Canada moved to FXX. In addition, a Canadian version of the FXNOW app, which allows viewers to watch shows from FXX and FX Canada, has been launched.[4] On the day of the launch, FX Canada's website was completely revamped to include program information from both FX-branded channels.

It was revealed through CRTC regulatory documents[5] that the broadcast licence used to launch FXX was the licence for the unlaunched channel Ampersand, a licence that requires it to broadcast programming related to "romance, love and relationships",[6] despite FXX's broadcast schedule not conforming to this specification.
