4th Logo

FOXTEL Productions (Australia) - CLG Wiki
Logo: On a black background, we see a light shining from left to right, revealing the FOXTEL logo in red-orange. Below it in grey are "ORIGINAL" and "PRODUCTION". Copyright information is below. The entire logo fades out a little ways into the logo.

FX/SFX: The light shining and the logo fading out...

Music/Sounds: A whoosh.

Availability: TBA

Editor's Note: This logo has been hated by several due to it's simplistic nature compared to past logos. Also the logo fades out very early, right after it is formed.

5th Logo

FOXTEL Productions (Australia) - CLG WikiFOXTEL Productions (Australia) - CLG Wiki

Nickname: "FX Networks' Older Australian Brother"

Logo: On a black-grey gradient background, a searchlight shines and reveals the FOXTEL logo in grey. The text "made for" is above the logo. Copyright information is below. The logo shines. The light and "made for" text then fades out and the logo itself fades out a couple of seconds later.

Variant: In 2014, the logo was enhanced with better animation. In this version everything fades out at the same time.

FX/SFX: The animation.

Music/Sounds: Same as before. The newer version has a angelic choir added to the whoosh.

Availability: Was seen on numerous shows and programming.

6th Logo
(2016-June 8, 2017)

FOXTEL Productions (Australia) - CLG Wiki
Logo: On the dark, we see a spotlight turning up. The background then shows up to be a mix of bright colored spotlights with the FOXTEL logo and "Original" seen below it. The logo shines. A few seconds later the spotlight turns off, making the screen dark again.

FX/SFX: The spotlights, and the logo shining.

Music/Sounds: TBA

Availability: Seen on shows during this time period, although there is a small possibility that this logo will be plastered with the 7th logo.

Editor's Note: Similar to the 4th logo, many don't like this due to it's simplistic nature.

7th Logo
(June 8, 2017- )
before August 2018:
Foxtel Original (2017, opening variant)Foxtel Original (2017)Foxtel Original (2017)
August 2018-July 21, 2019:
Foxtel Original (2018)
from July 21, 2019:
Foxtel Original (July 2019)

Logo: On a dark gradient blue background, we see letters all in lower case slide in from different directions in their positions to reveal the phase "foxtel original" in a Helvetica-style font. The logo then slides out the same way and in it's place, Foxtel's logo (six dots forming an abstract "f") slide in in it's place.

  • An opening variant exists that has both the letters and the abstract "f" slide in together and remain on screen.
  • Beginning in August 2018, the abstract "f" was removed from both the opening and closing variant. Both variants just have the "foxtel original" text animate in as before, as part of a minor rebrand launched with the iQ4set top box.
  • Starting on July 21, 2019, the background was changed to a vibrant orange. No other changes were made
FX/SFX: The sliding of the letters and logo.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Current. The new branding was revealed on June 6, 2017 and was first seen as an on-screen production logo on June 8, 2017 on season 7 episode 7 of Grand Designs Australia. Future productions should have this logo.

Editor's Note: Like the 4th and 6th logo, this one is considered poor due to it's simplicity and cheapness. Some have compared it to the current Starz Originals logo because of this.
