Fox is a Finnish entertainment TV channel owned and produced by Fox International Channels (FIC) Nordic. It was launched on April 16, 2012 as a re-branded SuomiTV, which had been acquired by FIC Nordic in January.[2][3]

Fox is freely available in Finland both over-the-air and through cable, as it bases its funding on television advertisements. It is FIC Nordic's first channel that does not operate on subscriber fees.[4]

Programming[edit]

The channel features local content – such as news and horse racing – in Finnish as well as fiction and factual entertainment, movies and lifestyle programs mainly in English (with Finnish subtitles).

Fox Kids[edit]

This is the only outlet to use Fox Kids brand, which was phased out most of the world. However, the outlet offers foreign television programs aimed at a young audience dubbed into the Finnish language.
