Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment was founded in 1995 as the distribution outlet for FoxVideo, CBS/Fox, Fox Kids Video, CBS Video, Fox Interactive, and Magnet Interactive.[3]

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 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and United Artists titles after MGM ended their home video agreement with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (Fox's worldwide distribution deal with MGM was to expire in September 2011, but was renewed and extended on April 13, 2011; the deal was then due to expire in 2016, but was again renewed and extended. The deal is now due to expire in June 2020).[4] They also distribute titles from Relativity Media, EuropaCorp U.S.A., Annapurna Pictures and Entertainment One.[5]

Fox's best selling DVD titles are currently the various season box sets of The Simpsons.[6] 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 in 2000 and have since then been transferred to Warner Home Video.[7] They also distributed HIT Entertainment releases in 2006 until 2008 when video distribution moved to Lionsgate Home Entertainment, then Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, as well as distributing DreamWorks Animation films from 2013 to 2017.

In late 2006, the company began releasing its titles on Blu-ray.[8]
