ABOUT

FOX Life was tailored for African audiences and debuted in South Africa on Monday 3 October 2016, at 18h10. The first show to air on the channel was the dubbed Portuguese telenovela Blood Ties.

As part of the new channel, an additional 500 hours of fresh new programming were planned for the schedule over the months after the channel launch, focused on localised storytelling, created specifically for African viewers.

New American shows to debut on FOX Life at launch included Pitch and Atlanta.

The channel was placed alongside FOX Africa on DStv, on channel 126, replacing FOX Crime, which was discontinued on Wednesday 28 September, 2016. Select programming from this channel was folded into the FOX daytime schedules.

FOX Life joined the extensive FNG portfolio in Africa, which at the time included FOX, National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild, National Geographic Gold, FOX Sports, FOX Sports 2 and Baby TV.

The channel was discontinued on StarSat on 30 September, 2019. It was re-added on 24 February, 2020.

FOX Life was discontinued across Africa (including DStv and StarSat) on 30 September, 2020.
