Q TV ... rock and alternative, although recently much of the prime time output of the channel is instead given over to FHM TV, based on another magazine (also by EMAP), which specialises mainly on female R&B and pop groups. In common with other EMAP channels, Q was originally a jukebox channel, however this element was dropped in 2004.
Newest Review: ... year that passes. I'm sure you know the concept: Q have a large vault of music videos that they play while displaying a ticker along the bottom of the screen, with each music video having a number assigned to it that you can use to text in and request the corresponding video. I think it's a bit of a swizz to phone into these shows when the videos loop round soon enough anyway, but I have it ... more

Q is not a channel I have ever been HUGELY infatuated with, because I find its "indie" tastes a bit too generic and safe, whereas I'm more of a Kerrang/Scuzz man. Still, the magazine is quite classy and respected and the music video channel is similarly regarded, even if it does seem to be getting more pop-aimed with every year that passes.

Oh dear. Whatever happened to Q? Channel 453 used to be one of my regular calling channels on Sky, along with Kerrang! and MTV2, but now I watch it less and less frequently. Why is this? Well, a few weeks ago, Q drastically altered it's output. It went from a "credible" channel, showing the likes of Travis, Starsailor, Ash, U2, etc, to just another pop station showing the likes of Westlife, Blue et al. Admittedly, the likes of Oasis, Nickleback and some more guitar based bands still pop up occasionally, but much less frequently than before. Q is on of the EMAP owned channels on Sky - alongside Magic, Smash Hits, Kiss, Kerrang! and the Box. ... Read the complete review

Q is definetly the best digital music channel at the moment. It offers something for pretty much everyone. Q has a fine plend of rap, pop, rock, indie and dance all jumbled together to form a great channel with loads of choice. They only seem to play the best videos on it unlike some of the other channels which play stuff which is still popular. Q has new releases current chart items and great songs from a few years back. This is the kind of channel which makes the digital subscription fee worth paying, check it out now. You do not know what you are missing. ... Read the complete review

When Q first launched on Digital tv, it was wonderful.. You could pretty much gurantee that in any given hour you'd see at least 2 Red Hot Chilli Peppers videos, Aerosmith, Foo Fighters and the like. Now that it's being going for a while, more video's have been added to the play list and it's starting to turn into a better-quality version of the Box. It works like this - there are a list of videos available - you ring up, pay 25p or whatever for the cost of the phone call and choose the video you want to watch. You then wait....and wait.....and wait utnil your video comes on. The nice thing when it first started was the lack of ... Read the complete review

I have an "intresting" taste in music, to say the least. This means that I rarely change over to the vast array of music channels that seem to be on offer these days. However Q changed all this. Admittably it does not always play songs to my liking, but then, what does? With my preferences in, Queen, Jimmi Hendrix, R.E.M. and the Beatles, I rarely see my favourites. However Q introduced me to "modern" music. That is not to say I now like Craig David or even the really annoying Limp Biscuit (Bizkit sorry). No, but I have found some great rare beauties that I never would have known without Q. Thank you Q, now I can download ... Read the complete review
