A+E Networks formed A+E Networks Italy based in Rome by December 2013. In Early 2104, A&E Italy took full ownership of History Italy from the channel partner, Fox International Channels.[1]

On free-to-air Freeview and YouView, Fox International Channels UK launched YourTV on 1 October 2015. YourTV targets female viewers.[2]

In January 2016, the Fox International Channels unit was announced to be split into three divisions, Fox Networks Group Europe, Fox Networks Group Latin America and Fox Networks Group Asia, all reporting to Fox Networks Group CEO Peter Rice and COO Randy Freer. As a result of this reorganization, the Fox International Channels banner was discontinued.[3]
