Fuel TV was a cable and satellite action sports network that airs in Australia. It launched in 2004, and was owned by Fox Sports Pty Ltd. Fuel TV mainly aired content originally sourced for the now defunct American Fuel TV.

It also screened limited original content, UFC programming, Impact Wrestling and formerly aired Attack of the Show! and X-Play from G4 until their January 2013 cancellation. It also showed live coverage of all ASP World Tour men's surfing events. It was also used as an "overflow" channel for Fox Sports Australia when all 3 main Fox Sports are being used for other obligations and they have a fourth, motorsport/extreme sport obligation, which gets shown on Fuel TV live, and delayed on Fox Sports.

For non-motorsport/extreme sport obligations, Pay-per-view channel Main Event is used to broadcast the program under the "Fox Sports Plus" banner, for no extra cost to a Foxtel/Austar subscription.

On 2 November 2014, Fuel TV closed and was replaced by Fox Sports 4.[1][2]
