FOX Movies is an Southeast Asian movie channel owned by Fox Networks Group, subsidiaries of 21st Century Fox.

History[edit]

Fox Movies Premium logo from 2012 to 2017

On January 1, 2012, Star Movies was rebranded to FOX Movies Premium and FOX Movies Premium HD, available in Hong Kong and selected Southeast Asian countries. In India, China, Middle East and North Africa, Taiwan and the Philippines (SD only), the Star Movies brand remained.

A new channel, named Fox Movies (Southeast Asian countries only), replaced Fox Movies Premium and Star Movies (Philippines) on June 10, 2017.

On November 1, 2017, Star Movies Vietnam was rebranded as Fox Movies Vietnam.[1]

On January 18, 2018, Star Movies Taiwan was rebranded as Fox Movies Taiwan, yet Star Movies HD Taiwan remains the original name.

Overview[edit]

Fox Movies and Fox Movies HD has first-run contracts for movies distributed by 20th Century Fox, Disney, Columbia Pictures, Pixar, Marvel Studios, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and DreamWorks and sub-run contracts for movies from Paramount Pictures, Universal Pictures, and Warner Bros. for countries where FOX Movies and FOX Movies HD is available. It also features movies from other movie distributors including: Lions Gate Entertainment, Summit Entertainment and The Weinstein Company. It is another Hollywood movie channel whose main competitor is HBO Asia. Some of its design is based on the movie Tron: Legacy (the first movie aired on FOX Movies Premium) since the countdown to rebranding and has different station IDs based on type and genre of the movie.

Operating channels[edit]

Fox Movies Asia[edit]

Fox Movies Asia (formerly known as Fox Movies Premium) is transmitted in Southeast Asia. It is the only advertisement free version of Fox Movies and, unlike other versions of Fox Movies, this version also spends minimal time promoting its own upcoming movies. The channel does not air promotions of movies classified as unsuitable for people aged under eighteen until 8pm SEAT and 9pm for Malaysia. This channel broadcasts 24 hours a day.

Fox Movies Philippines[edit]

On June 10, 2017, in line with its Southeast Asian counterpart (Fox Movies Premium), Star Movies in the Philippines was rebranded as Fox Movies. Like its predecessor, it also has English subtitles daily, as well as local advertisements when the movie is taking a break (its HD counterpart, however, does not because of the HD channel formerly using its Asian feed (Fox Movies Premium) and Fox Movies Asia feed). The channel typically broadcasts action, comedy, animation and horror/suspense films every day and drama films on early morning. On June 12, 2017, the HD channel was converted into Philippine feed during independence day of the Philippines but the Asia feed will continue to broadcast via live streaming on a subscription-based FOX+ which is available to Cignal, Smart and PLDT Home subscribers and it's with Chinese subtitles on their movies (along with Fox Family Movies and Fox Action Movies).

Fox Movies HD[edit]

On January 1, 2012, Star Movies HD was rebranded as Fox Movies Premium HD in selected Asian territories where Star Movies has been renamed to Fox Movies Premium. On June 10, 2017, Fox Movies Premium HD has been renamed itself as Fox Movies HD.
