FOX Life, a bold and entertaining Pan African channel will offer an eclectic and exciting mix of US dramas, comedies, unscripted programming along with fresh local content

The channel will launch on October 3 2016 and will be available on DStv channel 126 to DStv Premium, Extra, Compact, Family and Access customers

Considered one of the world’s leading destinations for scripted and unscripted entertainment, FOX Life will be tailored for African audiences.

As part of the new channel, an additional 954 hours of fresh new programming will be added to the schedule over the coming months, focused on localised storytelling, created specifically for African viewers. New hit US shows to debut on FOX Life include Pitch and Atlanta.

The new channel will sit alongside FOX on DStv, on channel number 126 and will replace FOX Crime, which will no longer be available on DStv from September 28, 2016. Select programming from this channel will be folded into the FOX daytime schedules. This is a win for DStv customers as FOX Crime was limited to only DStv Premium and DStv Extra, FOX Life will be available to DStv Premium, Extra, Compact, Family and Access customers in South Africa.

FOX Life now joins the extensive FNG portfolio in Africa, which includes FOX, National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild, National Geographic Gold, FOX Sports, FOX Sports 2 and Baby TV.
