HistoryEdit

Fox life (erstwhile known as Fox History & Entertainment) is owned by FIC which also operates and distributes many other channels in India including FX, Fox Crime and BabyTV.

Fox life experimented with a dedicated Traveller Band (weeknights, from 9 to 10 pm) in January 2011, which received a good response from the viewers, both in terms of the ratings and qualitative response. The first local Indian production of 2011 was a show that explored the psyche of Indian men across the country through the eyes of two sassy, urban women – Sugandha Garg and Indrani Dasgupta. The show ‘What’s With Indian Men’, was high on entertainment, wit and exploration of both - the geography and the gender.

On 15 June 2014, Fox Traveller was replaced by India feed of Fox Life, which runs in other countries. The channel also airs television series similar to STAR World, Fox Crime and FX.

"This Journey is Fun"Edit

The channel follows a new brand philosophy of ‘This journey is fun’ as their shows focus on the journey rather than the destinations. The channel looks at accentuating the travel, unlike regular travel shows that concentrate on destinations, the shows on Fox Traveller focus on the fun element attached to travel, the experiences and the people. The audiences includes people who are hungry for new, bigger, better, and varied experiences; open to experimenting; open to trying out even challenging things and wanting to visit the places and ideas that they see on the channel.

LogosEdit

Fox Life changed logos continuously, from November 2008 to the present, Fox Traveller has changed its logo 5 times,and initially it was Fox History and Entertainment. Then it became Fox History and Traveller because there were no Entertainment serials and there were a lot of history serials. Then it changed into a different logo which was Fox History and Traveller. This was the third logo. Now it became Fox Traveller since there were no History serials and there were only travel and sightseeing serials. And on 15 June 2014 it changed itself to Fox Life and it now presents not only cooking, travel, sightseeing but also entertainment and History.
