AXN (short for Action Extreme Network) is a pay television channel owned by Sony Pictures Television, which was first launched on June 22, 1997. The network is now spread across several parts of the world, including Europe, Japan, other parts of Asia and Latin America. Funded through advertising and subscription fees, AXN delivers 24 hours a day of action and crime TV series, movies, animations and adventure-reality and lifestyle sports programmes. In the United States, AXN was used as a brand name for the streaming of Sony's television library on streaming service Joost before it shut down in 2012.

Operating channels[edit]

Discontinued channels[edit]

As part of a brand licensing agreement with Sony, Canadian broadcaster Hollywood Suite launched an AXN-branded movie network in 2012 known as AXN Movies, a re-branding of its network Hollywood Storm.[1] The channel was discontinued on November 3, 2015, as part of the re-formatting of Hollywood Suite's channels to use decade-based formats.[2]

Series and shows[edit]

The series and shows aired by AXN differ in each version of the channel since some series aired by AXN in one market may be in other channel's hands in another country. In some cases, U.S. shows that are broadcast by local networks will be broadcast with dubbed (American Portuguese, German, Bulgarian, Czech, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Slovak, American and European Spanish, Japanese and Russian) or subtitled (Croatian, Macedonian, European Portuguese, Romanian, Serbian, Slovenian, Malay, Bengali, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Indonesian, Mongol, Nepalese, Urdu, Sinhalese, Korean, Taiwanese, Thai, Khmer, Laotian, Vietnamese, Dzongkha, Ukrainian, Dhivehi and Kazakh) in the same market. There are some examples of series aired by AXN:
