Myx (/ˈmɪks/, stylized as MYX or myx) is a Philippine pay TV channel based in Quezon City. The channel is targeted to youth audiences with music video as its primary content, it was introduced on free-to air television through the now-defunct television network Studio 23 in 2000. Some of the programs of Myx was shown on Studio 23 during early morning, afternoon and late evening blocks. In 2002, Myx was launched as a stand-alone 24-hour music channel on cable. On February 28, 2007, an American counterpart was created to cater the Asian-American community in United States. Myx is notable for showing the lyrics as the music video plays which was adapted from video karaoke, a popular pastime in Asia.[1] Since 2006, Myx has given the annual Myx Music Awards to the most influential personalities in the Philippine music industry.

History

Myx was first aired on November 20, 2000 on ABS-CBN's sister television network, Studio 23 (now S+A), it was intended to be the replacement of MTV Philippines. It aired on Studio 23 during daytime, as a block-timer.

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 one music channel in the Philippines.

On January 16, 2014, Myx stopped airing on Studio 23; this was after the closure of Studio 23 to give way to the new free-to-air sports channel, ABS-CBN Sports and Action (S+A).

In November 2015, the network celebrated its 15th 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 re-branded 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 network concluded the celebration with the airing of the Myx 15 documentary on November 20, 2015, the launching day of Myx wayback in 2000.

On July 30, 2018, Myx became available on ABS-CBN TV Plus at Channel 12 (DTT), it was launched as a free trial channel together with O Shopping, Asianovela Channel, Movie Central and Jeepney TV until December 31, 2018 but it was extended until November 30, 2019. Prior to this, there was Myx2, a tested complimentary channel and later on discontinued before TV Plus was officially launched in 2015.

On July 11, 2019, Myx launched a secondary YouTube channel called All Music Myx which features uploads of Myxclusive performances of artists from the Myx archives.
