Since Fox Reality Channel's launch on May 24, 2005, the network has more than tripled its reach across the US. According to internal sources, the network has propelled past its initial availability in 12 million homes and is currently available in almost 46 million homes.

"We plan to keep the momentum going strong by offering our fans more of the reality television they crave," said David Lyle, President, Fox Reality Channel.
