MTVX was a Viacom-owned American rock music video channel that was replaced in mid-2002 by MTV Jams. Like its "sister stations," VH1 Classic, VH1 Soul, VH1 Country, MTV Hits, VH1 Mega Hits, MTVX was available exclusively on digital cable packages or satellite TV providers, such as DirecTV. The replacement of MTVX with MTV Jams was decried by many rock music fans. MTV's explanation was that, based upon ratings and Billboard chart information, more of the American population would prefer to see hip-hop and R&B music videos, rather than the hard rock videos which MTVX had been created to play.

Like its "sister stations," VH1 Classic, VH1 Soul, VH1 Country, MTV Hits, VH1 Mega Hits, and previously MTVX, MTV Jams is available exclusively on digital cable packages or satellite TV providers, such as DirecTV.
The replacement of MTVX with MTV Jams was decried by many rock music fans.
For a while, MTV Jams' playlist was becoming more predictable and less random than it originally was at its inception; the new videos that were in heavy rotation were sometimes spun once an hour or once every two hours.
MTVX Petition (266 words)
I believe that this is a disgrace that MTV took away one of their only channels devoted to rock, and instead, replaced it with MTVJams (which is an R&B/rap channel).
Therefore, MTVX should be brought back for all those who cherish rock 'n roll, whether it be classic, alternative, metal, and so on.
The MTVX Petition to MTV network was created by all those who are angered by the removal of MTVX and written by Colleen Claes.
