E4 Extra is a British free-to-air television channel owned and operated by Channel Four Television Corporation,[1] launched on 29 June 2022.[2] It is a sibling channel to E4 and replaced 4Music, with 4Music in turn replacing Box Hits which has shut down. It shows comedy and entertainment programming, with music programming airing in the mornings.[3]

Idents for the new channel have been directed by Michael Marczewski, where various everyday events develop unexpectedly, such as 'most dangerous interdimensional monster' being entered alongside a village fete's massive vegetable competition.[4]
