While Fox Asia imports a substantial amount of programming seen in its US counterpart, there are separate rights granted the each version of the channel. Hence Fox Asia has a different line-up of programmes from its US counterpart, including those seen on rival networks in the US and produced by competitors of 20th Century Fox (such as Warner Brothers).
