Fox Television Stations has debuted its Fox Local app for streaming on connected televisions.
The free app is available across platforms highlighting news, weather, and programming from the Fox-owned stations in Washington D.C., Atlanta, and Detroit markets, with all stations set to launch this summer.
“FOX Local is the crucial next step in our overall streaming strategy, which is focused on providing viewers the easiest and fastest ways to watch their most trusted local news and programming,” said Jeff Zellmer, senior vice president of digital operations for FTS.
The Fox Local streaming app is accessible on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Android TV devices, expanding into additional platforms soon. FTS will be rolling out local experiences for each of its 17 markets in the coming months, starting now with Fox 5 in Washington D.C., Fox 5 in Atlanta, and Fox 2 in Detroit.
The app allows users to stream news from their local market stream. The app also provides access to national live streaming coverage from LiveNOW from Fox, Fox Soul and Fox Weather. Viewers can visit foxlocal.com in order to learn more.
“With this easy-to-use app, FTS is demonstrating its commitment to finding new ways to keep our loyal viewers up to date on all the news and local programs they trust,” said Patrick Paolini, senior vice president and general manager of the Fox-owned duopoly in Washington, D.C.
