    the fox broadcasting company[1] (often shortened to fox and stylized in all caps as fox)[2] is an american broadcast television network that is a flagship property of the fox corporation. the network is headquartered at 1211 avenue of the americas in new york city, with additional offices at the fox broadcasting center (also in new york) and at the fox television center in los angeles.

    launched on october 9, 1986, as a competitor to the big three television networks (abc, cbs and nbc), fox went on to become the most successful attempt at a fourth television network. it was the highest-rated network in the 18–49 demographic from 2004 to 2012, and earned the position as the most-watched american television network in total viewership during the 2007–08 season.[3][4]

    fox and its affiliated companies operate many entertainment channels in international markets, although these do not necessarily air the same programming as the u.s. network. most viewers in canada have access to at least one u.s.-based fox affiliate, either free-to-air or through a pay television provider, although fox's national football league broadcasts and most of its prime time programming are subject to simultaneous substitution regulations for pay television providers imposed by the canadian radio-television and telecommunications commission (crtc) to protect rights held by domestically based networks.

    fox is named after what was once called 20th century fox, its original corporate sibling (and still its major supplier of programming, despite its acquisition by disney) and indirectly for producer william fox, who founded one of the movie studio's predecessors, fox film. fox is a member of the north american broadcasters association and the national association of broadcasters.
