Fox Traveller is a cable and satellite channel owned by Fox International Channels and STAR TV. It is distributed in India by NGC Network (India) Private Limited ("NGC India"). The channel was previously known as Fox History & Entertainment and was renamed FOX History & Traveller in May 2011 and further as Fox Traveller in October 2011.
Fox Traveller is aimed at viewers in India and other south Asian countries including Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The channel recently[when?] increased its travel based content. The channel aims to present a perspective of the world through the eyes of Indians and undertakes locally produced content. Available in four languages (Hindi, English, Tamil and Bengali). The channel can be viewed on digital cable and satellite television in India.
Fox Traveller experimented with a dedicated Traveller Band (weeknights, from 9 to 10 pm) in January 2011, which received a good response from the viewers, both in terms of the ratings and qualitative response. The first local Indian production of 2011 was a show that explored the psyche of Indian men across the country through the eyes of two sassy, urban women – Sugandha Garg and Indrani Dasgupta. The show ‘What’s With Indian Men’, was high on entertainment, wit and exploration of both - the geography and the gender.
"This Journey is Fun"
The channel follows a new brand philosophy of ‘This journey is fun’ as their shows focus on the journey rather than the destinations. The channel looks at accentuating the travel, unlike regular travel shows that concentrate on destinations, the shows on Fox Traveller focus on the fun element attached to travel, the experiences and the people. The audiences includes people who are hungry for new, bigger, better, and varied experiences; open to experimenting; open to trying out even challenging things and wanting to visit the places and ideas that they see on the channel.

Fox Traveller changed logos continuously, from November 2008 to the present, Fox traveler has changed its logo 4 times. Initially it was Fox History and Entertainment. Then it became Fox History and Traveller because there were no Entertainment serials and there were a lot of history serials. Then it changed into a different logo which was Fox History and Traveller. This was the third logo. Now it became Fox Traveller since there were no History serials and there were only travel and sightseeing serials.
