  • Fox News launching streaming service for superfans

Fox News (NASDAQ:FOXA) is expanding its reach in the news world with Fox Nation, a standalone subscription service available without a cable package, NYT reports. The streaming service will launch by the end of the year and focus on right-wing commentary and original shows. Fox Nation will take deep dives into the issues of the day, while offering exclusive events and more than 20 years of archival programming, according to a news release.

"Fox Nation is created to appeal to the Fox superfan", Fox News program development and production chief John Finley told The Times. The network will also draw on new anchors and commentators to round out the programming.

The service, called Fox Nation, is a stand-alone subscription that is completely independent from cable and satellite companies.

Fox News subscribers are known to be among TV's most loyal.


"This initiative will capitalize on providing that viewer, who is among the most affluent and well educated in cable, with a highly specialized content experience on a platform they can watch anytime, anywhere", Finley said.

Fox News "superfans" will soon have yet another way to tune in to their favorite channel.

The new service, to be priced later this year, will be housed at the news network's NY headquarters, with hiring for the new venture expected to ramp up in the second quarter of this year.
