FX was an Italian TV channel, which launched on May 21, 2006 in Italy on Sky Italia. It broadcast Italian and US movies and TV series. It also aired a selection of mystery-related documentaries after their passage on the National Geographic Channel, as well as some documentaries produced by the channel itself (e.g. Biancaneve, a report on the cocaine consumption in Central Europe).

Every weekend, the channel aired "Nocturama", a night-long marathon of top network TV series like Burn Notice and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Due to lowest ratings, the channel was closed on July 1, 2011, following a line-up restyling of Sky Italia. FX's satellite slot planned to host a new Fox International channel by Autumn 2011.
