On Tuesday morning, 21st Century Fox is launching its new online video streaming platform called Fox Nation.
With a focus on entertainment and political opinion, the streaming service apparently promises to offer content in addition to what viewers get on its decades-old cable TV channel Fox News.
Fox Nation will have upto 30 hours of new programming per week, and will also stock archives of Fox’s radio programs. The streaming platform has also lined up live shows such as 'UN-PC' with hosts Britt McHenry and Tyrus, 'Liberty Files with Judge Napolitano', and 'Reality Check with David Webb'.
The launch of Fox Nation seems to be 21st Century Fox’s attempt at expanding its footprints in the rapidly growing online streaming industry. But the real test for Fox would potentially lie in how much of an additional share would its new service carve out in digital media - a space getting quickly crowded by an increasing number of players trying to milk consumers’ appetite for online content.
