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  due contract issues. The problem with Cablevision was fixed one day later.
