Fox Family Channel
Following the sale of the channel to Fox Kids Worldwide, it was announced that the channel would be renamed Fox Family Channel in 1998.
ABC Family originally used a modified version of Fox Family's previous logo, with the ABC circle logo replacing the sideways Fox logo.
In 2003, the logo was revised with the 2D ABC circle logo and the word family only being displayed. The word family was also changed from Univers to Helvetica.
On August 20, 2015, Microsoft (through its wholly-owned subsidiary PiC Entertainment) purchased a 20% stake in ABC Family from Disney. On October 6th, 2015, ABC Family announced that it would be rebranding to Freeform beginning January 2016 to target younger viewers. This rebrand will mark the first time in 27 years that the word family won't be in the name of the channel. In late-December 2015, it was confirmed that Freeform would take over on January 12th, 2016.
On January 18, 2018, Freeform underwent its first rebrand under that name.
