Fox Crime and FX got dedicated Indian feeds in 2012, but Fox Crime shut down in 2015, and FX followed in 2017 (along with FX’s HD feed, which had been launched in late 2015, and Star Movies Action). The SD versions of Nat Geo Music, Nat Geo People and BabyTV—which always had an international feed, and never a dedicated Indian feed—were withdrawn from India in February 2019 after the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s new channel packaging rules. The HD versions of Nat Geo People and Music were withdrawn in June 2019 and were replaced by full-fledged Tamil and Telugu versions of National Geographic. BabyTV HD is still running in India.
Dedicated Indian feeds for Fox Networks Group channels were announced in 2014 and launched on 1 February 2016. At the same time, a Hindi audio feed was introduced for Nat Geo Wild, with Tamil and Telugu audio feeds being launched subsequently.
