On 12 February 2024, the channel rebranded to Now as a part of Disney's planned phaseout of Fox brand following the acquisition of 21st Century Fox.[2] Unlike other Fox-branded channels, the Turkish counterpart did not rebrand to Star Channel due to there being already a channel called Star TV in Turkey and the Turkish version of FX already existing in the region.[3]
