9XM is an Indian pay television music channel based in Mumbai. The channel is owned by 9X Media, an Indian television business. 9XM's programming is focused on Hindi-language music videos.

International[edit]

In August 2008, 9XM launched as a free-to-air channel on Sky in the United Kingdom and Ireland.[1] The following month, the channel was added to Freesat.[2] 9XM was removed from Freesat on 27 August 2009 and from Sky on 24 December 2009,[3] with the channel's Sky EPG slot purchased by Colors.[4]

The channel returned to Sky and the UK market on 14 February 2012.[5] On 12 October 2012, the channel closed once again citing technical difficulties,[6] however their broadcast license had been revoked by Ofcom on 13 September following a failure to submit their returns.[7] The channel returned on 8 November 2012,[8] only to finally close again on 31 May 2013, following poor audience ratings.[9]
