20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is the home video distribution arm of the 20th Century Fox film studio. It was established in 1976 as Magnetic Video Corporation, and later as 20th Century Fox Video, CBS/Fox Video and Fox Video. The company also is best known for distributing the world's highest grossing film of all time Titanic which took in U.S. 1.8 billion dollars worldwide.

CBS/FOX became Fox Video in 1991, alternating with the CBS/FOX name until 1998. It was re-named as 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment in 1995, alternating with the Fox Video name until 1999. They also currently distribute Pathé DVD and VHS titles in the UK, and HiT Entertainment, 4Kids Entertainment and Yari Film Group DVD titles in North America.

They also distribute MGM/UA DVD titles worldwide under the MGM Home Entertainment label since MGM ended their home video agreement with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, with the exception of certain MGM/UA/Columbia TriStar co-productions (in such cases, SPHE continues to own domestic video rights). Fox's best selling DVD titles are currently the various season box sets of The Simpsons.[1]

They also once served as the U.S. distributor for television and/or movie products released by the BBC from the 1980s to the 1990s, but those U.S. distribution rights expired at the end of 1999, and were then given to Warner Home Video.

They also distributed The Magic School Bus videos from 1999 to 2002 while the series was shown on Fox.

Out of all the Fox Kids programs in the United States sold to The Walt Disney Company, Goosebumps is one of the very few Fox Kids shows that was not sold to Disney and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment still holds the Home entertainment distribution rights to release them on DVD since 1995.

They will also distribute Own-produced movies and English-dubbed Japanese Anime films dubbed by 4Kids Entertainment releases on DVD and Blu-ray in the United States as the company has a deal with The CW4Kids and 4Kids TV, since it's Saturday Morning block was first aired on Fox.

They also made a deal with HiT Entertainment that when they release their DVDs because they appointed Lions Gate as its North American home video partner in 2008, responsible for the distribution, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment now holds the distribution rights to all the HiT Entertainment DVD releases such as: Thomas & Friends and Barney & Friends.

In 2007, the company began releasing its titles on Blu-ray Disc, with Universal Studios doing it in 2008, which both of them will become the last remaining major Hollywood studios to enter the high-definition home video market.

They will also re-release Adventures from the Book of Virtues on DVD by the company if they get the rights to the show. According to it, they will also release Porchlight Entertainment titles if Fox's parent company would acquire the company.

Also, they will re-release the Franklin titles on DVD and 4 its made-to-video specials.
