FOX began live streaming on its digital platforms, offering viewers access to a simulcast of the network’s prime-time entertainment programming via FOX.com and FOX NOW for iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Apple TV and Google Chromecast.
FOX has become the first U.S. broadcast network to live stream its prime-time programming nationwide. The beta launch kicked off with So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation.
FOX is the only U.S. broadcast network to offer pay-TV customers in all 210 television markets nationwide a live stream of its prime-time entertainment programming. Going forward, FOX will simulcast entertainment programming seven nights a week, as well as Saturdays during late-night.
“From the start of the on-demand and over-the-top viewing revolution, FOX has been at the forefront of providing greater access to our buzz-defining shows, like Empire, Lucifer, Scream Queens and Family Guy,” said Dana Walden and Gary Newman, chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group. “Adding nationwide prime-time live streams is just another great example of how the FOX Digital Consumer Group, under Brian Sullivan’s leadership, is innovating to give viewers the convenience and flexibility to watch our programming whenever and wherever they want.”
