The Fox Broadcasting Companyball (often shortened to Foxball and stylized in all capital letters as FOXball) is an American commercial terrestrial television network that is a flagship property of Fox Corporationball. The network is headquartered at the Fox Broadcasting Center in New York City, with additional offices at the Fox Television Center in Los Angeles.
Launched on October 9, 1986 as a competitor to the Big Three television networks (ABCball, NBCball and CBSball), Foxball went on to become the most successful attempt at a fourth television network. It was the highest-rated broadcast 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.
Foxball 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 over-the-air or through a pay television provider, although Foxball's National Football League telecasts and most of its prime time programming are subject to simultaneous substitution regulations for cable and satellite providers imposed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commissionball (CRTCball) to protect rights held by domestically based networks.
The network is named after former-sister company 20th Century Foxball, and indirectly for producer William Fox, who founded one of the movie studio's predecessors, Fox Filmball. Foxball is a member of the North American Broadcasters Association and the National Association of Broadcasters.
