NEW DELHI: Fox International Channels on Wednesday launched seven channels in India with the objective of reaching out to a wider audience and keeping television viewers enthralled and informed.

FX, National Geographic Channel HD, NG Wild, Fox Crime, NG Adventure, NG Music and Baby TV will be available on multiple platforms like direct to home, digital and analoguecable.

“Fox has added another feather to its cap by launching an exciting array of fresh channels. We have tied up with distributors to ensure that the channels are available across the country. Barring National Geographic, which is available in high definition, all others are paid channels,” said Fox International Channels India Managing Director Keertan Adyanthaya on Wednesday.

Described as an entertainment channel dedicated to crime, Fox Crime will show in-depth investigation into crimes. “A lot of crime is affecting Indians like terrorism, honour killings in Delhi and places surrounding it. So we thought it would be appropriate to launch a channel exclusively for crime stories and investigations,” he added.

With an amalgamation of quality, character-driven and often unconventional drama and comedy, FX offers programmes of various kinds ranging from reality TV shows to candid camerashows, made with different themes like profiling of successful men to the latest gadgets.

NG HD aimsto disseminate knowledge about animals, nature, history, science, culture and adventure programming.

Nat Geo Adventure chronicles the unfiltered experiences of young travellers whose journeys take them to the edge. “Exhilarating stories and thrilling imagery fuel an audience eager to stretch their limits and understand the real world beyond their borders,” said Mr. Adyanthaya.

Nat Geo Wild caters to the growing public appetite for wildlife and environmental programmes. It explores the broader themes of conservation and ecology.

NG Music follows seasoned artistes whose anthems have bridged borders and emerging talents who have revolutionised the music scene to give viewers authentic sound tracks rich in diversity.

Baby TV's library features many original series which address the entire spectrum of early learning skills that infants and toddlers encounter in their initial years.
