MYX /ˈmɪks/, stylized as myx, is a Filipino cable television network based in Quezon City, Philippines. It is targeted to youth audiences with music videos as its primary content, a strategy reminiscent of the early days of MTV. It was introduced via Studio 23 (now ABS-CBN Sports + Action) in 2000, ABS-CBN's UHF broadcast television network which offered some of its programs during early morning, afternoon and late evening blocks. In 2002, MYX was launched as a stand-alone 24-hour music channel on cable.

The network is also known for showing the lyrics on the music videos which was adapted from karaoke, a popular hobby in Asia.[2] An American counterpart known as Myx TV was later created to cater the Asian-American youth community in United States.

History[edit]

MYX was first aired on November 20, 2000 on ABS-CBN's sister station, Studio 23 (now ABS-CBN Sports + Action). It was intended to be the replacement of MTV Philippines. It aired on Channel 23 during daytime, while Studio 23 is being aired on primetime.

On February 14, 2002, ABS-CBN merged MYX on Channel 23 with then top-rating music cable channel, VID-OK. After the merger, MYX retained its name. However, it carried the format of VID-OK (which plays music videos with lyrics). At first, viewers of both predecessors were cold regarding the said change. However, MYX was able to gain significant audience compared to the channel's main competitors. Since then, MYX became the Number #1 Music Channel in the Philippines.

Last January 16, 2014, MYX stopped airing on free TV (via Studio 23). This was after the closure of Studio 23 to give way to ABS-CBN's new free TV sports channel, ABS-CBN Sports + Action.

In November 2015, the network celebrated its 15th year anniversary. The month-long celebration started with MYX Mo! 2015 at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds on October 31, 2015. The following day, November 1, 2015, MYX rebranded with new shows and a new look with a major graphics overhaul. MYX also invited past and present VJs for the grand MYX Homecoming which was aired as a 4-part special. Finally, the station concluded the celebration with the airing of the MYX 15 documentary on November 20, 2015, the launching day of MYX wayback in 2000.
