GXT was an Italian subscription-based comedy/entertainment television channel.


Jetix Europe launched GXT as a male teen channel in May 2005 on Mondo Sky.[2] Jetix Italy management, as Switchover Media, agreed to purchase the channel and K2 from Jetix Europe in July 2009.[3] [4] In January 2013, Switchover was purchased by Discovery Communications.[5]

On December 31, 2014, GXT ended its operations.


GXT was designed to target a young and predominantly male audience, offering programming geared towards action, humor and excess, including game-shows such as Takeshi's Castle and Sasuke, sports entertainment programs such as WWE and American Gladiators as well as programs produced by Guinness World Records and comedy, action and horror films.
