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.

The History Channel
Fox History & Entertainment
The History Channel was renamed to Fox History & Entertainment on 22 November 2008, therefore temporarily ending the History brand in India before it returned in October 2011 as History TV18.
Fox History & Traveller
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.
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.
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.
