    Hmmm... it makes sense but it is also seems stupid. So FXX will probably happen.

    Big gamble that could pay off for Fox as they can now get extra fees for having a desired cable channel.

    Want to watch The League, Louie, Always Sunny? Then you need to subscribe to FXX. They can charge a higher carriage fee and compete with Viacom's Comedy Central and Time Warner's TBS. Anger Mangement will be pumping out 90 episodes over two years, that's a lot of original programming for a cable channel.

    In the end it will likely mean more original content for FX and FXX which is good for us but cable providers may try to screw you over to get FXX.

    Eh, I like FX how it is now. I watch what I like, and change the channel when it's something I don't like.

    So FX has developed a stutter? They've got therapy for that kind of thing.

    This seems real dumb. I hope someone comes to their senses.

    They already branded half of the Fox Movie Channel's programming as "FXM" and show younger skewing movies that are on FX.

    I think this is a done deal, only thing left is the channel name.

    FXX, FX2 or FXC (comedy).

    I get FX but I don't get the Fox Movie Channel, how about starting with giving me that first?

    Like hearing FXM will be producing original content and that FXX won't be focused just on comedy.

    In Canada we just have FX Canada which I'm guessing will just air all of the FX/FXX/FXM content.

    So it's basically copies of Ted Turner's network.

    TBS = FXX ... the comedy department.

    TNT = FX ... the drama club.

    TCM = FXM ... movies.

    EDIT: Just noticed the OP article caught it too.

    True. But if what we've seen on FX is any indication, the original programming will be MUCH stronger than what's on TBS/TNT.

    Pirates, if you don't want to pay for that new channel, get ready.

    Then we'll get FXY = Spike, FXXX = Porn, FYFY = SyFy, FCF = All Fox reruns all the time and whatever else they can rip off.

    Challenge is the only thing on MTV worth getting pissed off for when you miss it.
