Some of these stations had formerly been a part of the Creator/DuMont Network, which came on the air in the late '40s as the nation's third television network. Several problems, like ownership complications, problems keeping talent, and NBC and CBS making sure that they got all the good stations, did it in slowly. Creator/DuMont was finished off by the quick rise of Creator/{{ABC}} in 1954 from an also-ran to a money-making also-ran who could hang in there patiently. For the next thirty years, all attempts at creating a fourth television network (not counting Creator/{{PBS}}, which nobody does anyway, since it operates on a completely different business model and doesn't have the same production woes as other networks) were met with little success, and most of the former group of Creator/DuMont stations ended up part of Metromedia, which eventually began to run strong independent stations from the '60s and into the '70s and '80s.

Fox also owns a number of regional sports networks, most of which are now branded "Fox Sports (insert region here)", with some owned by [=DirecTV=] under the branding ''Root Sports''). This began in the 90s as ''Fox Sports Net'', with the acquisition of the Prime Network and [=SportsChannel=] [=RSNs=] from Liberty Media and Cablevision, respectively. They also acquired a few others from other companies. During the mid-2000s the net began to break apart, with several stations being bought out by Comcast and rebranded, and others stopping their alliance with FSN. They also ran Fox Soccer Channel (which would later morph into FXX, in September 2013), but still run Fox Soccer Plus, which broadcasts portions of Series A, Barcelona FC and the UEFA Champions League in the hopes that the beautiful game will catch on in America eventually, a bet that paid off, as Fox will be the US English language broadcaster of the 2018 and 2022 WorldCup. (It lost the rights to the UsefulNotes/EnglishPremierLeague to NBC Sports in 2013.) Also owned by Fox is Fox Sports 1, a relatively new all-sports network seeking to challenge ESPN's dominance (it was previously known as Speed/SPEED Channel (and, before that, Speedvision), and was more known as UsefulNotes/{{NASCAR}}'s official network), and companion network Fox Sports 2, which was previously known as Fuel TV, and showed mainly extreme sports. In 2011, Fox began carrying the [[UsefulNotes/UltimateFightingChampionship UFC]], which is considered a major step in legitimizing that sport further, and sees some programming on Fox Sports 1 and 2.

Creator/FoxNewsChannel also dominates [[TwentyFourHourNewsNetworks cable news]], coming in as the number-one rated cable news network in 2007, hosting the number-one rated cable news TalkShow, ''Series/TheOReillyFactor'' (which has held the spot for one hundred months in a row), and grossing more viewers than the other cable news networks combined. However, it is always important to note that Fox and Fox News are completely different operations, and even some of the network's affiliates go out of their way to make sure that viewers know that in their local news coverage. ''Fox News Sunday'', however, is a staple of Sunday mornings on the network, and State of the Union Addresses and Presidential election coverage on the network are produced by Fox News. Sister cable network Fox Business Network is a SpiritedCompetitor to CNBC with a much deeper pro-business slant.

Fox, through their cable division, also runs a number of general networks, including Creator/{{FX}}, FXM (which was similar to Turner Classic Movies, but with solely older films from the Twentieth Century Fox libraries during the day, and recent films with more commercials at night), FXX (a comedy-oriented spinoff of FX), and the National Geographic Channels: both the original network and National Geographic Wild (which replaced the Fox Reality Channel). Spanish viewers are targeted with the upstart Fox Life (formerly Utilisima) network, and from 2012-2015, the broadcast Mundo Fox network, which draws from the network's deep reserve of Latin American and European Spanish programming. (Fox pulled out of the Mundo Fox network, but the network still lives as [=MundoMax=].)

On a smaller note, Fox also has their hands in radio via Creator/ClearChannel, which distributes two networks from them; Fox News Radio, which provides a traditional radio news service to radio stations with FNC anchors, along with a few full-fledged talk shows. Fox Sports Radio is the SpiritedCompetitor to the larger Creator/{{ESPN}} Radio, with mainly sports talk, but no play-by-play rights outside of local stations affiliated to them which have their region's teams (although it has picked up some national play-by-play rights, like the UFC, as a side effect of some of Fox's larger rights deals in recent years). There is a simulcast of the audio portion of the ''Fox NFL Sunday'' pre-game show. A lesser program, ''Fox All Access'', was one of those weekend shows that aired on pop music stations and plays current tracks and promotes Fox shows and films; it used to promote Creator/FoxKids programming (known as the Fox Kids Countdown) until that block's passing in 2002, and finally faded away in June 2012.
