Fox News Media will make its streaming services available on DirecTV platforms.
Beginning March 20, Fox Nation, the company’s subscription streaming service, will be accessible as a premium add-on on DirecTV, with plans to extend to DirecTV Stream this summer.
“We are proud to work with DirecTV, expanding the distribution of our signature streaming services, Fox Nation and Fox Weather, and offering more opportunities for our dedicated viewers to watch our premier content,” said Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott in a statement.
Fox Nation will be available for $5.99 per month, and DirecTV users will be able to take advantage of a limited-time deal that includes a 60-day free trial. Fox Nation’s programming includes original programs and curated programming, with almost 5,000 hours of original content.
“We want to empower our customers with more capabilities in how they choose to watch the content they care about most,” said Rob Thun, chief content officer at DirecTV. “We’re pleased to expand our relationship with Fox News and add value for our subscribers by offering Fox Nation and Fox Weather.”
DirecTV viewers will be able to search for Fox Nation using their standard onscreen programming guide, which will be located on channel 1960 and labeled “FOX NTN.”
In addition, DirecTV Stream will include Fox Weather—the free, ad-supported weather streamer—starting Tuesday, March 29. Users can access Fox Weather using the DirecTV Stream content guide and its intuitive search capability, which is included as part of the entertainment package
