Myx was first aired on November 20, 2000 on ABS-CBN's sister television network, Studio 23 (now S+A). It was intended to be the replacement of MTV Philippines. It aired on Studio 23 during daytime, as a block-timer.

On February 14, 2002, ABS-CBN merged Myx on Channel 23 with then top-rating music cable channel, VID-OK. After the merger, Myx retained its name. However, it carried the format of VID-OK (which plays music videos with lyrics). At first, viewers of both predecessors were cold regarding the said change. However, Myx was able to gain significant audience compared to the channel's main competitors. Since then, Myx became the number one music channel in the Philippines.

On January 16, 2014, Myx stopped airing on Studio 23. This was after the closure of Studio 23 to give way to the new free-to-air sports channel, ABS-CBN Sports and Action (S+A).

In November 2015, the network celebrated its 15th anniversary. The month-long celebration started with "Myx Mo! 2015" at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds on October 31, 2015. The following day, November 1, 2015, Myx re-branded with new shows and a new look with a major graphics overhaul. Myx also invited past and present VJs for the grand "Myx Homecoming" which was aired as a 4-part special. Finally, the network concluded the celebration with the airing of the Myx 15 documentary on November 20, 2015, the launching day of Myx wayback in 2000.

Since July 30, 2018 until its May 5, 2020 shutdown (due to the Cease and Desist Order issued by the NTC due to ABS-CBN's legislative franchise to operate expired the day before), Myx became available on ABS-CBN TV Plus at Channel 12 (DTT). It was launched as a free trial channel together with O Shopping, Asianovela Channel, Movie Central and Jeepney TV. Prior to this, there was Myx2, a tested complimentary channel and later on discontinued before TV Plus was officially launched in 2015.

On July 11, 2019, Myx launched a secondary YouTube channel called All Music Myx which features uploads of Myxclusive performances of artists from the Myx archives.

In June 2021, Myx's digital assets merged with its Global counterpart. Alongside that, the TV channel was also rebranded and has since adopted a new logo, similar to the 2020 Myx Global logo.

In July 2021, As part of the strong partnership between ABS-CBN Entertainment and TV5/Cignal, Cignal added Myx to their channel line-up along with its sister network Cinema One as free trial and later as "add-ons". [2]

The current VJs of Myx are Ai dela Cruz and Samm Alvero. They will be the only VJs for now as other VJs lose their jobs due to the retrenchment of employees in ABS-CBN after the Philippine congress junked the new ABS-CBN legislative franchise to operate on July 10, 2020.
