In 1999, Extreme launched its United States operations, and charged veteran producer, Lloyd Bryan Adams with the task of launching the channel in the USA and heading up the North American presence. They launched EX TV, a branded block on Fox Sports Net in March 2012.
In 2005, after launching the channel in over sixty countries, Extreme sold its stake in Extreme Sports Channel to John Malone’s Liberty Global Inc. which had by then become owner of UPC. The channel was put under the managment of Chellomedia.
The channel launched in Poland in January 2006, followed by France in that same year. On 28 September 2011 the channel began broadcasting in widescreen (16:9) format.
