Q was launched on 2 October 2000. In common with other EMAP channels, Q was originally a jukebox channel, where music video selections made were by the viewers using premium rate phone lines; however this element was dropped in 2004.


On 3 July 2012, Q closed and was replaced with Heat, a celebrity news and music TV channel.[3]


For a few years, much of the prime time output of the channel was instead given over to FHM TV, based on another magazine (also by EMAP), which specialised mainly on female R&B and pop groups. However in October 2007, the FHM TV block on Q was dropped and Q regained its full hours.
