E4 Extra is a British free-to-air television channel owned and operated by Channel Four Television Corporation. [1] Launching on 29 June 2022, [2] it's a sibling channel to E4 and replaced 4Music, with the latter in turn replacing Box Hits which has shut down.

E4 Extra shows comedy and entertainment programming, along with repeats of some Channel 4 programmes. It had broadcast music programming in the mornings until April 2023. [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]

On 27 September 2022, E4 Extra moved from 139 to 138 on Sky, following the transition of Channel 4 HD from a single nationwide service on 138 to a fully regionalised version at channel 104 (108 in Wales, where S4C occupies 104). 139 was subsequently used by Sky Sci-Fi.
