Update: I've found another article about Xee's rebrand to See in Denmark, and the article suggests that it's not just simply Fox Networks Group that's stopped operating the channel—even YouSee is no longer co-running the channel, which is actually now solely operated by Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT).

I'm pretty sure that Finland now has it's own local National Geographic now. Promos are in Finnish, text also included. Kind of makes sense since the channel is free-to-air here so make it as local as possible.

I'm not aware so correct me if I'm wrong but everything in ads is in Finnish.

It is its own feed indeed.

In the past, it used to be Nat Geo Norway+Finland.

Even small Estonia has its own feed

That's what I thought.

When I finally saw the Finnish text in promos, I was like wow, did we really get our own feed? I was happy about it and surprised.

Yeah I'm aware, I've been in Estonia every Summer and it's impressive that it actually gets it's own feed. At least Estonians get something on their own, a channel that is well known worldwide.

Every country has its own National Geographic national feed. :D
Not any country, but linguistic groups generally yes.
E.g. UK-Ireland, GAS, France-CH-Belgium etc.

I'm not informed about Latvia and Lithuania , I think they might get Estonia as the default feed, just as with Fox, if nothing has changed.

Edit: OK Latvia has its own feed too.

And they're increasingly sounding possibly incorrect, somehow.
The closure of FOX was announced a month and half in advance, and the closure of Disney Channel was announced three months in advance, so if there was any announcement we would've heard it by now.

However, it could be the case that they're still negotiating over a possible "pan-feed" with no VOD (although if it's true it seems very last minute to me), and Sky, Virgin or Disney can't say anything as neither party don't currently know the outcome.

A shutdown in the USA, but not the way you are expecting it to be.

FOX Life USA, a Spanish-language channel, will shut down on March 31, the American Cable Television Cooperative reported. I would give you a link to the announcement but it's geoblocked here.

The channel started as an American feed of Utilísima, after that in 2013, with the launch of MundoFOX (it had separate feeds for the USA - as a terrestrial network - and Latin America - as a cable network), the channel was renamed FOX Life and was aesthetically linked to the Latin American feed.

No footage of the channel exists online due to its low reach, as it's limited mainly to Hispanics, and as is the case with most Spanish-language channels in the USA, sold as part of a separate package. In fact, the channel wasn't even measured in the 2021 ranking of cable networks - certainly it would have had less viewers than beIN Sports.

The episode of Nick News changed to different episode at very last minute
I guess 4Kids Entertainment skipped Tokyo Mew Mew's second half due to its darker and edgier content or the poor ratings of the first half.
Gonna be honest with you all: I don't feel safe living in this country right now.
I love my Nintendo Switch I got back in 2018, I've played an awful lot since I got it. I've played Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokemon: Legends Arceus and many more wonderful Nintendo titles over the years of when I got it. I've been a Nintendo fan since I got my first console purchase, The Nintendo GameCube, back in 2002.

I predict that the COVID-19 pandemic will end permanently by 2023.
