FXX is a Canadian English-language Category B digital cable specialty channel that is owned by Rogers Media, a division of Rogers Communications, and the FX Networks subsidiary of 21st Century Fox.[1] Based on the U.S. cable network of the same name, FXX is devoted primarily to scripted comedies for young adults.

It launched on April 1, 2014, in standard definition and high definition.[2][3]

History[edit]

It was reported that Rogers had plans to launch a Canadian version of FXX, a younger-skewing spinoff of FX.[4] Originally scheduled for January of 2014, FXX's launch was later rescheduled to April 1st, 2014. As part of the launch, 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 FX and FXX, was launched.[5] 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 that the broadcast licence used to launch FXX was the licence originally granted for a proposed channel called Ampersand. That licence requires the channel's programming to be related to "romance, love and relationships".[6][7]

Programming[edit]

As with FX Canada, any new series produced for its U.S counterpart will air on FXX. FXX also airs several original shows that premiered on the U.S version of FX (namely Fargo, Married, and You're the Worst).
