Fox International Channels decided to close down the French version of Foxlife on December 31sr. The channel was launched in 2005 but did not manage to find profitability.

Foxlife is now available on Orange TV, SFR, Free and Numéricâble; originally the channel was also available on the CanalSat platform, but the distribution contract was terminated at the end of 2007. Ever since, the channel “found it difficult to find its equilibrium ”

Fox Channels France has a number of channels on the market, Voyage, National Geographic Channel and National Geographic HD and “is ready to further develop its presence on the market.”
