Ciné FX is a French television channel, owned by Mediawan Thematics.
The channel was originally only available via AB Sat and as an option on CanalSat, but is now available through contract on the cinema option from AB, on cable, on ADSL, and on digital television packages.
At its start, in 1996, the cinema package of the AB group comprised five channels, but none which dealt with science fiction films. When the cinema package was reformatted on 15 September 2002, the channel created three others: Ciné Comic, Ciné Polar, and Ciné Box to replace the former CINEBOX. Today, the package is named CINERAMA and comprises this channel, as well as Ciné Polar, Ciné First, and Ciné Pop.
The programming comprises science fiction films from the 1950s to today, covering every subgenre, including programming the classics, Forbidden Planet, the films of Roger Corman, the studio Troma, and films such as 2001: A Space Odyssey.
