Minimax Logo

Minimax modified the logo on December 26, 2006. The original 6 mascots were replaced by new mascots (Mini,Max,Cat and Dog). The Minimax and Megamax channels were sold to ChelloMedia in 2006, and so, the 50% of the channel is owned by ChelloMedia from 2006 to 2014, when it was rebranded to AMC Networks International.



The channel is currently owned by Fortner Digital Media Properties and AMC Networks (both 50%). However, Frontier Digital Media Properties merged to Crystal Holdings in 2016.

In October 2016, Crystal Holdings sold it's 50% stake in Minimax USA and Megamax USA to Ktuhbodonut2011 Holdings, which became Qualis in 2018.
