Fox Life is a television network, launched by the Fox Broadcasting Company, which airs across Latin America, Europe (also available in HD, starting by February 2012, in Italy) 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. It was launched in USA on 2002, 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. It was launched in the Netherlands and Belgium on September 7, 2009. The channel also has versions in other countries around Europe.

This channel is not available in South East Asia. India is the only South Asian country where it is scheduled to be launched. Fox India Ltd has applied downlink license for Fox Life along with Fox Crime, FX and Baby TV to the Information & Broadcasting Ministry of India.[1]

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. In Japan, the name of Fox Life was changed to en:FOX bs238 on October 1, 2011.
