Television X is the name of a series of adult television channels in the UK, produced by Portland TV, a subsidiary of Northern & Shell owned by Richard Desmond, the proprietor of the Daily Express.[1] In 2009, a new logo was placed on all TVX channels; TVX, TVX amateur and TVX Brits replacing the old logo from 2003. in 2014 Television X announced that they had acquired the exclusive television rights to Down on Abby a porn parody of Downton Abbey and would be airing one episode a week from April 5, 2014.[2]

The beginnings[edit]

Television X The Fantasy Channel launched in June 1995. The two original hosts were Charmaine Sinclair and Samantha Jessup with Debbie Corrigan and Kirsten Imrie making occasional appearances. Much of the original programming Superdick, Shagnasty and Mutley, David Dickie's World of Sport etc. was developed by Deric Botham, then editor of Penthouse. The station garnered international publicity when it brought American prostitute Divine Brown over for a launch at Bafta's headquarters in Piccadilly. On Friday nights, DJ Chris Rogers aka Caesar the Geezer presented a live two-hour show with sports agent Eric Hall.

Other Channels[edit]

additional channels launched later on. These were TVX 2, TVX 3 and TVX 4. During the relaunch in 2009, TVX Retained its look and colour (Red), TVX 2 Became TVX Amateur (orange), TVX 3 Became TVX Brits (Union Jack colours) and TVX 4 Became TVX Ffwd (Purple). FFWD was short lived, as it closed later on in 2009, and TVX Amateur closed in 2012 when its EPG slot was acquired By red Hot, The sister network of TVX.

Television X Girls[edit]

Girls contracted to Television X in 2008 include Suzie Best, Cathy Barry, Amber Leigh, Renee Richards, Keisha Kane, Cate Harrington and Donna Marie. In March 2008 glamour model Sammie Pennington was introduced as the new face and body of Television X. Three months later, glamour model Sophie Price was introduced as the new face and body of Television X. In addition, Linsey Dawn McKenzie, who has not worked for a while, attended the UK Adult Film and Television Awards 2008 as a representative of Television X and Red Hot TV.


In mid-2007 Television X launched TelevisionX WebTV. The BBFC and Ofcom censorship rules not applying in this domain allowed Television X to show hardcore content to its viewers for the first time. In October 2008 Television X launched TelevisionX.com this change effectively split the television X website into two. One, televisionxnow.co.uk, to be used for television subscriptions and the other, Televisionx.com to be used for explicit content. This split was a necessity brought about by an Ofcom ruling which banned the advertisement of an explicit website on TV. Television X can only advertise their soft website on air.

Other names[edit]

It was also known as Television X The Fantasy Channel for a long time, although it has since dropped that name. It was originally to be called TVX until Desmond was advised that that name was already in use so The Fantasy Channel moniker was added. Television X is also known by the abbreviation TVX.


The channel won UK Adult Film and Television Awards 2008 Best Pay Per Night Adult Channel. The award was picked up by Linsey Dawn McKenzie. Additionally on the night of the awards Television X and Red Hot TV (UK) walked away with more than 12 awards including Jay Snake winning best male and Cathy Barry winning best online female actress.

In March 2010 Television X launched their own awards called The SHAFTAs (Soft and Hard Adult Film and Television Awards).[3] Winners included Kerry Louise and Tanya Tate. Both Angel Long and Syren Sexton picked up 2 awards each.

In December 2010 Television X won two awards from UK Adult Producers (UKAP). Tanya Tate collected the award on behalf of Television X for Tanya Tate's Sex Tour Of Ireland which won Best Reality Series. She also starred in the Television X series Diamond Geezers, which won Best DVD.[4]

15th Birthday[edit]

Television X celebrated its 15th birthday in August 2010 with a photoshoot of 14 of their top models from 1995 to then including Charmaine Sinclair, Lana Cox, Teresa May, Cathy Barry, Michelle Thorne, Lara Latex, Kerry Louise, Sasha Rose and Syren Sexton.[5] They also held a large party to commemorate the event in central London at Café de Paris (London), which featured both strippers and burlesque acts throughout the evening.[6]


Television X has an Ofcom licence approved for an HD service. [7]
