Fox Sports is the brand name for a number of sports channels, broadcast divisions, programming, and other media around the world. The name originates from the Fox Broadcasting Company in the United States, which in turn derives its name from Fox Film (which merged with Twentieth Century Pictures to form 20th Century Fox in 1935), named after founder William Fox.
The Fox Sports name has since been used for other sports media assets. These assets are held mainly by the Fox Corporation, with the exceptions of the operations in Australia, which are part of Foxtel (majority-owned by Fox Corp. sister company News Corp Australia) and the rest of the international Fox Sports channels, which are owned by The Walt Disney Company.
