The Fox Movie Channel is a channel which shows movies uncut and commercial-free. Movie content consists mainly of selections from 20th Century Fox's library of releases through the 1990s and movies produced exclusively for television. Widescreen versions are shown whenever available. Typically, older movies air during the daytime; more recent films, in the evening prime time. Other programming consists mainly of commentaries about the featured films.

The channel was launched on October 31, 1994 as fXM - Movies from Fox. The current name became official on March 1, 2000. Its primary competitors are Time Warner's Turner Classic Movies, Metro Goldwyn Mayer's MGM HD, and CBS Corporation's Flix, each of which likewise features films from its respective owner's inventory.

The Fox Movie Channel is available as Fox Movies in the Arab World, where it is not commercial-free, and often broadcasts partially censored or cut material.
