FOX Traveller started experimenting with a different programming line up in January 2011 with the introduction of a dedicated Traveller Band (weeknights, from 9 to 10 pm), which received tremendous response from the viewers, both in terms of the ratings and qualitative response. The channel increased its focus on locally produced content to engage better with the viewers as well as offer enhanced integration opportunities to its advertising partners. The first local Indian production of 2011 was a unique show that explored the psyche of Indian men across the country through the eyes of two sassy, urban women – Sugandha Garg and Indrani Dasgupta. The show ‘What’s With Indian Men’, was high on entertainment, wit and exploration of both - the geography and the gender.

With this philosophy, the channel looks at accentuating the very essence of travel. Unlike regular travel shows that are centered on destinations only, the shows on FOX Traveller focus on the fun element attached to travel, the experiences and the people. The audiences includes people who are hungry for new, bigger, better, and varied experiences; open to experimenting; open to trying out even challenging things and wanting to visit the places and ideas that they see on the channel.

Fox Traveller changed logos continuously, from November 2008 to the present, Fox traveler has changed its logo 4 times. Initially it was Fox History and Entertainment. Then it became Fox History and Traveller because there were no Entertainment serials and there were a lot of history serials. Then it changed into a different logo which was Fox History and Traveller. This was the third logo. Now it became Fox Traveller since there were no History serials and there were only travel and sightseeing serials.
