This service is launching just as Disney started to purge the FOX branding from its newly acquired services. Now that Disney owns 20th Century Fox Television and Fox 21 TV Studio, the company is changing the names to 20th Television and Touchstone Television respectively. At the same time, ABC Studios and ABC Signature Studios are joining forces to become ABC Signature. Earlier this year, Disney removed FOX from FoxSearchlight, calling the studio Searchlight Studios. You will start to see the new branding on your favorite shows.
