Fox News Media has announced plans to launch an international streaming channel in Europe next month.
Fox News International will combine programming from the company’s News channel and Fox Business Network.
After launching in Mexico next week, it will debut in the UK, Spain and Germany on 17th September. The company expects the streaming service to be available in 20 countries by the end of 2020.
FOX News International will be available through mobile and OTT devices, launching on iPhone, Android, Apple TV and Android TV, with Amazon Fire TV and Roku expected shortly thereafter.
FOX News Media CEO Suzanne Scott said, “We are excited to debut Fox News International, enabling our devoted audience overseas access to their trusted source for news and insightful analysis. With a catalogue of more than 20 signature programmes on-demand and live streams of our linear networks, this new digital streaming service will ensure our viewers around the world never miss out on the latest from America’s leading news channel.”
A UK version of Fox News disappeared from the air in 2017 when it was removed from the Sky platform. At the time, parent company 21st Century Fox said the decision was taken because the channel had very little viewership and was not making enough money.
