FXX is an American basic cable channel owned by the Disney Entertainment business segment and division of The Walt Disney Company through FX Networks, LLC.[2] It is the partner channel of FX, with its programming focusing on original and acquired comedy series and feature films for a primary demographic of men ages 18–34.[3]

FXX launched on September 2, 2013, at 7:00 a.m. ET/6:00 a.m. CT, replacing Fox Soccer.[3] The channel set a record for the longest continuous marathon in the history of television with a marathon featuring every episode of The Simpsons that had been released at the time and The Simpsons Movie over the course of twelve days.[4] This record has since been broken by VH1 Classic.[5]

As of September 2018, approximately 86.6 million households in the United States (93.9% of those with cable) receive FXX.[6] Since September 2023, following a pay dispute between Disney and Charter Communications, Spectrum no longer carries the channel.[7]
