About

FOX Retro is a defunct South African digital satellite television channel which launched on the TopTV digital satellite platform in May 2010 as one of the five Fox International Channels (FIC) stable: Fox Entertainment, Fox FX, Fox Retro, Baby TV and Fuel.

The channel was discontinued abruptly in July 2013 in order to make way for brands "more relevant to African audiences", when TopTV at the time was in business rescue, prior to being bought by China's digital pay-TV company StarTimes and rebranded StarSat.
