FXX Heads to Canada


PASADENA: Rogers Media is bringing the premium specialty channel FXX to Canada starting April 1.

The network is billed as a younger-skewing, funnier extension of FX Canada. It features FX original scripted series, acquired movies and series and will also boast original Canadian programs. FXX will be available on free preview via select distributors until June 30.

“With the tremendous success of FX Canada over the last two years, extending the brand with the launch of FXX is a natural progression for Rogers Media as we continue to deliver unmatched, exceptional, and exclusive programming to our audiences across the country,” said Scott Moore, the president of broadcast for Rogers Media. “Our strong partnership with FX Networks has allowed us to broadcast world-class content to our Canadian audiences through FX Canada, and we are proud to further strengthen this relationship with FXX.”

“The creative team at FX Networks has a world-renowned reputation for producing unparalleled content, and with the launch of FXX, viewers can expect even more provocative programming as the development slate ramps up in the months ahead,” added Hayden Mindell, the VP of programming and content at Rogers Media. “We look forward to delivering new and established hits on FXX and the existing FX Canada channel.”
