Fox Family Channel was an American television network. It aired re-runs of Shining Time Station episodes from 1998 to 1999. However, unlike on PBS, they were edited significantly to make room for commercial breaks. The channel was short lived as it existed from 1998 to 2001.

During Shining Time Station's airtime, it was either seen on an individual level like either by itself on a normal run or in a block, one being Captain Kangaroo's Treasure House with "The All New Captain Kangaroo" (a late 90s reboot of the classic CBS series), "Mister Moose's Fun Time" (a spinoff of the Captain Kangaroo reboot that also starred Thomas the Tank Engine as well as other various animated and live-action shorts like The Wiggles) and "Britt Allcroft's The Magic Adventures of Mumfie".

It was later renamed in 2001 to ABC Family after being bought by Disney and in 2016, it was once again renamed to Freeform. Other names included: CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network), CBN Family Channel and The Family Channel.

At least one Thomas story was edited out of a few episodes most likely to make room for commercial breaks.
