Fox News Launching Standalone Subscription Service Fox Nation


The cable news network is launching a subscription streaming service called Fox Nation, reports the New York Times.

According to reports by the end of the year, the service will launch and is "designed to appeal to the Fox superfan", the "folks who watch Fox News every night for hours at a time, the dedicated audience that really wants more of what we have to offer". To double the excitement of the Fox News viewers, it has also announced that there is no need of any cable package in order to subscribe Fox Nation. Fox Nation will also give subscribers access to exclusive events and more than 20 years of Fox News Channel programming. Fox Nation's programming will not overlap with the cable network's broadcast, but, save for the occasional appearance by Sean Hannity and the like, instead rely on a new set anchors and commentators. CBS Corp. plans to launch a sports service, "CBS Sports HQ", later this month, and another service based on its "Entertainment Tonight" program, later this year.

Fox Nation is expected to start operations as an advertisement-free outlet.

Speed is the Americans' identity and it was on display against a big Slovakia team that beat Russian Federation in its opener. The Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation face Slovenia later. "We'll learn from this", O'Neill said.

Fox Nation will be housed at FOX News headquarters in NY utilizing its new state-of-the-art technology and the most modern studio space in the industry. Neither of Fox News' main cable rivals, CNN and MSNBC, have a comparable streaming product (CNN has CNNgo, but it requires a cable subscription).

The only question still to be announced is what exactly will air on the new network.
