Canal FOX is the Latin American version of the American channel FOX. It was launched on October 15, 1993. The channel is mainly oriented towards family audiences, unlike its sister channel FX. Though it is a Portuguese and Spanish-language channel, the shows are referred to by their original names (except for The Simpsons).

The channel took part in the worldwide premiere of The Walking Dead on November 1, 2010 and the Zombie Invasion Event promotion that led up to it. After the final episode of the first season of The Walking Dead aired, Fox released the uncensored version of the first episode.

In December 2010, the channel started using the RTC ratings (Radio, Televisión y Cinematografía) in Mexico. At about the same time, Fox (and its sister networks) started using the Brazilian content rating system on its feed for that country.

In November 2012, Fox including its sister channels were removed in various cable providers such as Cablevision Monterrey, and Cablemas [1] due contract issues. The problem with Cablevision was fixed one day later.

Mega Weekend Fox[edit]

Mega Weekend Fox (stylized as Mega WKND FOX) is a weekend block in which the most popular series of Fox Latin America are aired such as The Simpsons, Glee (dubbed in Spanish), followed by a movie.

¡No Molestar![edit]

¡No Molestar!/Não Pertube !! (Do Not Disturb!) is a prime time block that started airing in 2005. It airs reruns of Futurama and The Simpsons. The block replaced "Domingo Animado" (Animated Sunday). Commonly, three to four episodes of The Simpsons and one episode of Futurama are aired. The block is mainly focused on teenagers and adults. The block is slightly based on the formula of Animation Domination, although some shows like Bob's Burgers and Family Guy air in FX Latin America's ¡No Molestar! block.

In 2006, to celebrate its 1st anniversary, it launched an internet competition, to vote on the most crazy video, created by the viewers. In the same year its name was changed temporarily to ¡No Molestar! Mundial to celebrate the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

In 2007, the block was included in their sister network, FX.
