History

Aux originally started out as a website, built on an Internet television model, and a programming block on another Glassbox-owned television channel, BiteTV; both the website and the block launched on November 24, 2008.[1]

AUX TV recently launched a new music page which offers users the latest in new music news, interviews and reviews. [2]

Glassbox received approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch Aux as a national English-language category 2 specialty channel on March 6, 2009.[3] The channel was subsequently launched on October 1, 2009 exclusively on Rogers Cable (in Ontario and New Brunswick, and shortly thereafter in Newfoundland and Labrador), with plans to launch on other providers in the future.

Programming

Programs on Aux include ExploreMusic with Alan Cross, Master Tracks, Aux Weekly, Talk Show Night At Juicebox Manor, Cypher, Band Foto, Strange Notes (hosted by George Pettit of Alexisonfire), Volume, Camera Music, the alt.sessions, Closer, Hard, City Sonic and KayvonTV.

Collaborations

In February 2009, Aux participated with CBC Radio 3 and Exclaim! to launch X3, a new collaborative cross-promotional platform which sees all three outlets air or publish feature content spotlighting a particular "Artist of the Month". X3 artists of the month have included K'naan, Malajube, Thunderheist, Japandroids, Apostle of Hustle and The Rural Alberta Advantage.[4]
