Okay, I get your point but if there's one thing I hope will happen in the future of the Fox name is that the Murdoch family will ultimately sell this and Foxtel to someone else that cares and that they would keep Fox News but under a different name.SNIP
Same as that I'm hoping that the Redstone family will no longer own Viacom CBS in the future but that's just me since I'm tired of those corrupt media families constantly affecting these two in a negative manner along with that I could see the Fox name return overseas under new ownership though different from the ones we know before and will probably get rebranded once the licencing expires and Disney decides not to renew it since as you said, they consider the brand toxic hence the recent rebrandings, though I do think they actually meant that Fox News is toxic, not the Fox network but I digress.
Well, the reason why I didn't say ABC is due to the fact that Disney's attempts to expand ABC outside North America came and went by which I mean the time when they launched ABC1 and while that channel was popular in the UK, I believe it wasn't profitable for Disney to continue it, hence why it shut down after three years of operation, hence I just wouldn't see it being the new name for the Fox branded channels.ABC would be a better name though, at least there's recognition, because of the ABC Studios production card and it's still in use.
Although, I do see them use the ABC name for probably in some countries outside North America but I do wonder if the FX name is owned by either Fox Corp or Disney since I'm confused on that part.
