Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment LLC (formerly Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, Inc., doing business as 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment) is the home video distribution arm of the 20th Century Fox film studio. It was established in 1977 as Magnetic Video and was later known as 20th Century Fox Video, CBS/Fox Video and FoxVideo, Inc.[citation needed]

CBS/Fox became FoxVideo in 1991, alternating with the CBS/Fox name until 1998. It was renamed as 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment in 1995, alternating with the FoxVideo name until 1998.[citation needed]

They serve as a UK distributor for Pathé movies and their film library for home media releases. Fox also distributed Yari Film Group DVD titles in North America.

TCFHE also distributes MGM and United Artists titles since MGM ended their home video agreement with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (Fox's worldwide distribution deal with MGM was due to expire in September 2011, but was renewed and extended on April 13, 2011 and was due to expire in 2016 but was renewed and extended again and, this time, it will be due to expire in June 2020[2]). They also distribute titles from Relativity Media, EuropaCorp U.S., Entertainment One[3] the reissues of Paramount's DreamWorks Animation films, and, formerly, Clarius Entertainment until they changed their name to Aviron Pictures and switched its North American home video distributor to Universal Pictures Home Entertainment in 2015.

Fox's best selling DVD titles are currently the various season box sets of The Simpsons.[4] They also once served as the U.S. distributor for television and/or film products released by BBC Video until those North American distribution rights expired at the end of 2000 and have since then been transferred to Warner Home Video. They also distributed HIT Entertainment releases in 2006 until 2008 when video distribution moved to Lionsgate Home Entertainment, then Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.[citation needed]

In late 2006, the company began releasing its titles on Blu-ray.[5]
