Until March 2019, the group also included the U.S. unit which consisted of Fox Television Group, Fox Cable Networks, Fox Sports Media Group, Fox News Group, National Geographic Partners, and Fox Networks Digital Consumer Group. Following Disney’s acquisition of 21CF, FNG’s U.S. unit was dispersed between the Murdoch’s Fox Corporation and Walt Disney Television, while the non-U.S. units (previously known as Fox International Channels, a unit previously operated jointly with 21CF’s U.S. domestic broadcast units until 2016, when the units were merged into Fox Networks Group) were later integrated into Disney’s direct-to-consumer and international unit through 2020.

Fox Networks Group was formed in 1993 to serve as the unit for the international multi-media business owned at the time by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation after the purchase of STAR TV with the purpose to serve its international channels.
In 2008, Fox Broadcasting and 20th Century Fox Television formed Fox Inkubation, a joint initiative for new animation talent that would allow them to produce two minute shorts as pilots for new series. Fox TV had concurrently started its animation division 20th Century Fox Television Animation with Jennifer Howell, the same executive heading up both Inkubation and Fox TV Animation. In 2012, Inkubation was discontinued as plans for a late night animation block moved forward and none of its projects got on the air. In May 2013, Howell exited Fox at the end of her contract.
Fox Television Group was formed in July 2014, encompassing of Fox Broadcasting and 20th Century Fox Television, and placed under Fox Networks Group. In June 2014, Fox Networks Group and Gail Berman formed The Jackal Group to provide programming for its various channels.
