Fox Life is an Indian food and lifestyle channel, owned by Star. It was launched on 30 November 2003 as The History Channel, then rebranded to Fox History & Entertainment in 2008. Its focus moved from informational programming to lifestyle and food as it rebranded two times in 2011—first to Fox History & Traveller and again to Fox Traveller—before the name Fox Life was adopted in 2014.

Fox Life is the only Fox-branded channel in the country after Fox Crime, Fox Action Movies and FX all shut down. Its main competitors are TLC, NDTV Good Times, FYI TV18, Travelxp and Living Foodz.

For the successor of the erstwhile History Channel in India, see History TV18.

Fox History & Entertainment was renamed to Fox History & Traveller on 17 May 2011 as it began showing more travel and lifestyle-related shows. The logo was largely the same as its predecessor.

July–October 2011

The logo was changed yet again on 15 July 2011 to highlight the channel’s near-total transition to food, travel and lifestyle shows. The word ‘History’ was greatly diminished, as was that genre’s importance.

Fox Traveller

October 2011–2014

Barely a few months after its renaming to Fox History & Traveller, the channel was renamed again to Fox Traveller on 30 October 2011 to make it clear that it would henceforth be exclusively a lifestyle channel. This came a few weeks after History returned to India as History TV18.

A high-definition feed was launched on 15 October 2012, shortly before the channel’s first anniversary.

Fox Traveller underwent yet another renaming, to Fox Life, on 15 June 2014 to match its international counterparts.



On 26 February 2018, Fox Life India adopted the logo and on-air graphics of the Asian Fox Life, which had rebranded from Star World on 1 October 2017. An India-specific slogan, Never stop, was introduced.

In Asia, Fox Life is a women’s interest entertainment channel, as against the Indian lifestyle-oriented channel.
