[ad_1]

International television networks division of 21st Century Fox (1993–2024)

Fox Networks Group (FNG) was the international division of 21st Century Fox. The division oversaw the production and broadcasting of the Fox brands in the United States and internationally. These brands included Fox, Fox Sports, National Geographic, and BabyTV, as well producing and distributing more than 300 entertainment, film, sports and factual channels in 45 languages across Europe, Middle East, Latin America, Africa and Asia, using several brands in those regions. Among their non-linear brands were Fox Play and Fox Plus. These brands reached over 1.725 billion households around the world.
Previously known as Fox International Channels, a unit previously operated jointly with 21CF’s U.S. domestic broadcast units until 2016 when the units were merged into Fox Networks Group, the group included the U.S. unit which consisted of Fox Television Group, Fox Cable Networks, Fox Sports Media Group, Fox News Group, National Geographic Partners, and Fox Networks Digital Consumer Group, until Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox, after which FNG’s U.S. unit was dispersed between the Murdoch’s Fox Corporation and Walt Disney Television as the non-U.S. units were integrated into Disney’s direct-to-consumer and international unit, and was later phased out with its properties being dispersed into various Disney units and the channels being subsequently rebranded to either Star or FX brands.

In early 2006, Fox International Channels formed a production company called Fox Toma 1 with Argentine content producer Ernesto Sandler. FIC purchased a majority interest in Telecolombia, renaming the production company Fox Telecolombia in June 2007. This was to boost Spanish-language original shows for Latin American and the US. Fox Telecolombia would still provide Telefutura and RCN Colombian network with programming.[7] In September 2007, FIC purchased a majority share in the international operations of BabyTV with the founders retaining the original Israel business.[8][9]
In 2007, the Argentinian Utilisima lifestyle channel, which launched in 1996,[10] was sold to Fox International Channels.[10] The channel went global in 2008, with the addition of a Portuguese feed,[11] and ended up being distributed across Latin America, Canada, Spain, New Zealand and Australia and the United States. The US version of the channel launched in May 2010. In 2013, it was rebranded as MundoFox and stopped being available internationally outside of Latin America (excluding Brazil).

A few of such arrangements were that the original Star TV company would take over representation of FIC’s channels in the region from NGC Network Asia, LLC, and Star itself would transform into a regional operation of Fox International Channels. Meanwhile, Star India would handle Fox-branded channels in India.[22][23][24]
In early March 2010, Fox International Channels agreed to move its Middle East and North Africa market channels’ operations from Hong Kong and other locations to an Abu Dhabi facility. Its NHNZ subsidiary would also open a production office in Abu Dhabi.

In May 2012, Fox International Channels Latin America announced that it would acquire MGM’s share in LAPTV,[39] which operated The Film Zone, Cinecanal and Moviecity. In October 2013, FIC purchased Paramount’s shares in LAPTV to become the sole owner.[40] LAPTV’s businesses were later folded into FIC Latin America, and Moviecity was relaunched as Fox+ in November 2014.
Former Fox Networks Group president David Haslingden’s Racat Group purchased NHNZ, a New Zealand-based production company for documentaries, and its sister company, Singapore-based company Beach House Pictures, in October 2012 from Fox.[41][42]

FIC also renamed its premium Dutch network Eredivisie Live to Fox Sports Eredivisie, with its channels renamed as Fox Sports 1 through 3.[44] In the third quarter of 2013, FIC’s French-language channels, including National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild and the travel-based Voyage, were expanded to Africa via RRsat’s Global Network and Measat’s Africasat-1a.[45]
On November 6, 2013, Fox International Channels acquired Setanta Africa Services Limited, operator of three Africa sports channels, Setanta Africa (English and French), Zuku Sports (East Africa) and the Setanta Action.[46] Setanta Africa and Setanta Action were branded as Fox Sports and Fox Sports 2, respectively in August 2014 at the 2014–15 football league kick-off.[47]

DNA TV would be managed by DNA Films management with Eric Schrier, president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, handling Fox’s interest.[51]
In October 2014, Fox Crime (Spain) was replaced with FoxLife, with the latter’s series moving primarily to Fox.[4] FIC Turkey, its pay company, and Fox Turkey, its free to air company, were merged in late 2014.[52] In the third quarter of 2014, a Fox-branded channel was launched in Sweden via Com Hem.[53]

In 2015, 21st Century Fox and the National Geographic Society formed a new joint venture named National Geographic Partners that would oversee the Society’s commercial ventures.[58] This included the U.S. domestic and international versions of National Geographic-branded TV channels, but Fox Networks Group would continue to handle advertisement sales and distribution of these channels.
In January 2016, 21st Century Fox announced a major reorganization of its non-U.S. television businesses. Fox International Channels (FIC), which have been operating separately from 21CF’s U.S. domestic television businesses, would be abolished, and the head of its regional divisions would report to CEO Peter Rice and COO Randy Freer at Fox Networks Group in the United States, instead of the outgoing FIC CEO Hernan Lopez, thus absorbing the international television businesses into Fox Networks Group, with the regional divisions being renamed Fox Networks Group Europe, Fox Networks Group Latin America and Fox Networks Group Asia, effectively abolishing Fox International Channels as a separate unit from 21st Century Fox’s television business in the United States.[59]
[60]
[61] All three international divisions of Fox Networks Group were collectively referred as Fox Networks Group International in 21CF’s formal documents (including the group’s annual reports).[62]: 7 
On December 5, 2017, 21st Century Fox appointed Uday Shankar, chairman and CEO of Star India, as the company’s president for Asia. The new role would oversee Fox’s television and online video platform business across the region, and the president of Fox Networks Group Asia would report directly to Shankar (instead of the equivalent at FNG U.S.).[63]

Disney acquisition and closure[edit]
On December 14, 2017, The Walt Disney Company formally announced its intention to acquire most of 21st Century Fox assets.[64] Businesses to be bought by Disney included FX Networks, a share in National Geographic Partners, and international operations of Fox Networks Group. The Murdoch family would retain the ownership of Fox Broadcasting Company, Fox Television Stations, U.S. domestic operations of Fox Sports, Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network, through a new company, eventually named Fox Corporation. Disney also acquired the regional Fox Sports Networks, but the U.S. Department of Justice ordered that those assets be sold within 90 days of closing of the deal due to Disney’s majority ownership of ESPN.[65]
On March 19, 2019, Fox Corporation was officially spun off from 21st Century Fox, and began trading on the Nasdaq.[66] The next day, March 20, The Walt Disney Company completed the acquisition of 21st Century Fox.[67] This rendered Fox Networks Group as a standalone unit abolished. Within Disney, FX Networks and U.S. operations of National Geographic television channels were placed under Walt Disney Television, Disney’s new U.S. domestic television unit. 20th Century Fox Television and Fox 21 Television Studios became a part of Disney Television Studios,[68] and Fox Networks Group CEO Peter Rice was appointed as the Chairman of Walt Disney Television.[68] The international businesses of Fox Networks Group would be integrated with Disney’s Direct-to-Consumer & International division.[67]
On January 17, 2020, Disney dropped the “Fox” name from the 20th Century Studios and Searchlight Pictures film units, though there were no mention of changes to Fox Networks Group or other Disney-owned Fox-branded units.[69] In the following years, Disney begun closing various channels from the Fox Networks Group due to dwindling ratings and to refocus its resources for Disney+ with the remaining active international Fox channels being rebranded as Star Channels, based upon the Star hub available on Disney+, or as FX Channels (with the exception of Japan and Turkey where the channels were renamed as Dlife and Now respectively), effectively closing Fox Networks Group.[70][71][72][73][74][75][76][77][78][79][80][81][82]
