US Fox News Launches Video Streaming Platform - Expected To Go Global (And In Africa) By 2020 End
Fox News - a significant cable news organisation in the United States - has announced it will be going global with a dedicated "International arm", just like others like CNN, BBC and SKY have been doing now for ages.
"Fox News International" is expected to be launched via a streaming service on the 20th August and is expected to be available globally almost immediately. Africa should have access to the streaming platform by the end of 2020. This service is expected to be priced at US$6.99 per month.
The price will include access to the US Fox News Channel (currently available only on StarTimes in selected territories across Africa); as well as the Fox Business Network (not now accessible in Africa).
Suzanne Scott, Chief Executive Office for Fox News Media, said in a statement: 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."
