ABOUT

FOX is a general entertainment channel dedicated to the best television series. Built on top of US product and some local productions, its brand lens is "smart entertainment with an edge".

Targeting a keen and demanding audience (adults 18-35), the channel was originally launched in Latin America in 1993. The genre offering was all-encompassing and varied by style. It features a schedule with headlines ranging from the most recent and innovative series to classic big hits.

FOX replaced Fox Entertainment (which aired exclusively on TopTV) when a carriage agreement was signed with MultiChoice in 2013 to carry the channel on its Premium bouquet on DStv, whilst remaining on TopTV (which later became StarSat) as well.

The broadcast on DStv is in HD, but it remained in SD on TopTV and later StarSat.

FOX was added to DStv's Compact bouquet on Wednesday 1 June, 2016.

FOX is home to shows like The Simpsons, Falling Skies, The Walking Dead, Bones, Glee, Empire and other varied style genres.

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