MUMBAI: Fox News is getting into the digital business with an upcoming over-the-top (OTT) platform called Fox Nation. It will launch in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Fox Nation will show live exclusive daily streaming content and there will be long-form programming content that will be accessible only to subscribers. The OTT platform will also have access to exclusive events and archival content from two decades that isn?t available elsewhere. One of them will be popular interactions with Fox?s popular opinion hosts and personalities.

In making the announcement, Fox senior vice president of development and production John Finley said, "With our traditional cable viewership at an all-time high, we are proud to announce a new digital offering geared entirely toward the superfans, who represent the most loyal audience in cable, if not all of television. This initiative will capitalise on providing that viewer, who is among the most affluent and well educated in cable, with a highly specialised content experience on a platform they can watch anytime, anywhere."

Fox Nation will be housed at Fox News headquarters in New York utilising its new state-of-the-art technology and the most modern studio space in the industry. Hiring for the new venture will begin in Q2 2018.

Fox News Channel is a 24-hour all-encompassing news service dedicated to delivering breaking news as well as political and business news. Owned by 21st Century Fox, it is available in more than 90 million homes and dominates the cable news landscape.
