Fox Life (stylised as FOXlife) is a television network, launched by the Fox Broadcasting Company, which airs across Latin America, Europe (also available in HD, starting February 2012, in Italy), Southeast Asia, and Japan (changed its name to FOX bs238 in October 2011). Its basic programming include numerous television series, sitcoms and movies, among others, which includes some original programming in certain regions. Fox Life Italy was launched in Italy on May 13, 2004, Portugal on May 19, 2005 and in Bulgaria on September 8, 2005. For Latin America, it started in January 2006, when it was launched in Brazil. The channel also has versions in other countries around Europe. Fox Life launched in the United States on November 4, 2013.[1]

Fox Life was launched in Southeast Asia on October 1 2017, replacing Star World.[2] Although in India Fox Life and Star World split, India is the only South Asian country where it has been launched.[3]Fox Life launched in India on 15 June 2014, replacing Fox Traveller.

In Latin America the channel aired soaps. It aired Telefe and Record soaps from Brazil and Argentina. Currently, the channel features mostly cooking shows and reality series on the Latin American service. When the current format was launched, it was with the exception of Brazil, where the channel aired, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., content from Utilisima and original shows for the local audience, as Bem Simples, and, from 7 p.m. to 8 a.m., reality series seen on the Fox Life service elsewhere in the region (most non-original cooking shows are not seen on the Brazilian service, since the rights are held by GNT). In February 28, 2011, with the launch of the Bem Simples channel in Brazil, all Bem Simples/Utilisima content moved to that channel.

Fox Life for the French-speaking market was discontinued on December 31, 2009.
