Jimmy (formerly Canal Jimmy) is a satellite digital television channel in France and now defunct in Italy and France. It was part of Sky Italia at n.140.


Canal Jimmy is launched on cable on November 29, 1990 by Michel Thoulouze who based the channel on the nostalgia of his adolescence. Canal Jimmy is named after two legends of the 1960s and 1970s: James (Jimmy) Dean and Jimi Hendrix.

On February 14, 1992, Canal Jimmy broadcasts its first exclusive series, Dream On. The channel also broadcast many films (the James Dean trilogy - East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause and Giant, etc.), old popular series (The Invaders, Star Trek, etc.) and exclusive American series in their original version (NYPD Blue for example). The most emblematic series ever broadcast on Jimmy is probably Friends, first broadcast April 16, 1996. The show has later made the tour across the French audiovisual landscape: France 2, NRJ 12, France 4, Comédie+, RTL9, AB1, M6, W9, NRJ Paris, D8, NT1 and TMC.

The second area of exploration of Canal Jimmy was music, always in a so-called nostalgic perspective, with the broadcast of programs like Top Bab by Philippe Maneuvre and iconic concerts of the years 1960-1970 such as those of The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Isle of Wight, etc.

The channel initially only aired from 8pm to 1am, following the Canal J youth channel which interrupted its programs at the same time. Canal Jimmy was included in the Canalsatellite package when it was created on November 14, 1992. After the launch of the digital version of the bouquet on April 27, 1996, the channel obtained its own slot and expanded its programs for the day.

On 16 January 2014 Canal+ announced to rebrand Jimmy as antiheroes' channel. For the occasion, a new logo was aired from 18 February 2014, along with a high-definition simulcast on Canalsat platform.

Later that year, in October Canal+ Group announced the closure of the channel, along with Sport+ and Cuisine+. Jimmy ended broadcasting on 26 June 2015.
