MTVX was a
Viacom-owned American rock musicvideo channel. MTVX was available exclusively on digital cablepackages or satellite TVproviders, being the first network of the "MTV Networks Digital Suite".
MTVX had no
commercialsbesides a brief, infrequent promotional spot for sister station MTV 2; and would show rock music videos constantly. The channel aired contemporary videos and older videos that were no longer shown on MTV. Likewise, MTVX was not limited to just one genre of rock music videos. The channel aired a variety of genres, including punk, metal, and grunge.
MTVX was closed on
May 1, 2002, and replaced by MTV Jams, a hip-hopmusic video channel. The replacement of MTVX with MTV Jamswas decried by rock music fans.Fact|date=January 2008 MTV's explanation, based upon ratings and Billboard chart information, was that more of the American population would prefer to see hip-hopand R&B music videos, rather than the alternative and hard rockvideos that MTVX had been created to play.
