Freeform is an American cable television network currently owned by ABC, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. Freeform offers contemporary and family programming, including off-network syndicated reruns and original series, feature films and made-for-TV original movies, and some religious programming.
The network was founded in 1977 as an extension of televangelist Pat Robertson's Christian television ministry, and eventually evolved into The Family Channel by 1990. In 1998, it was sold to News Corporation (parent company of FOX) and media mogul Haim Saban and renamed Fox Family. In October 2001, the channel was then sold to the Walt Disney Company and renamed ABC Family. It was rebranded with its current name in January 2016.
