Fox is an Asian Entertainment TV channel, owned and produced by Fox International Channels and distributed by STAR TV.

In Japan, the channel launched in February 1998 along with other Fox channels such as Fox Crime and Fox Life (now FOX bs238).

In Asia, the channel was in test broadcast on December 2009, broadcasting US TV series in loop. The first Asian provider who carried Fox was SkyCable in the Philippines which launched the channel on 5 January 2010, followed by StarHub TV in Singapore on 1 February 2010. Other TV providers across the region followed thereafter.[1]

Around early-to-mid-February 2012, the Fox wordmark was changed to the Fox HD wordmark (pictured) for all Fox commercials on all Fox channels in the Asian and Filipino television provider networks, including channels which are not in HD. This change is similar to the one done to STAR World. The reason for this change is unknown.

Started in May 2014, all FOX commercials are now added the Facebook page near the time and date showing. The reason of this change is unknown.

Fox Japan and Fox Korea are considered separated from the main feed as they have different programming. However, they are closely linked as they shared most of their commercials and the programming are nearly the same.

Fox Taiwan was officially launched on September 1, 2012, as FOX Showbiz (Chinese: 娛樂台) replacing Channel V Taiwan. This feed's broadcast Asian programming and some of American series reruns with Chinese subtitles, and FOX HD Asia feed are available through MOD and some of cable providers. The feed was renamed Fox Taiwan in January 2014 and broadcast both local and foreign programmes.

Operating channels[edit]

Programs[edit]

[2] While Fox Asia imports a substantial amount of programming seen in its US counterpart, there are separate rights granted to each version of the channel. Hence Fox Asia has a different line-up of programmes from its US counterpart, including those seen on rival networks in the US and produced by competitors of 20th Century Fox (such as Warner Bros.).

The following incomplete list applies only to the main Asia feed and the Philippines feed.
