FOX News Media’s subscription streaming service, FOX Nation, is now available on DIRECTV, the companies announced Monday.
The addition of FOX Nation to DIRECTV is part of an expanded distribution deal that will also allow FOX Weather to land on DIRECTV Stream later this month.
“We are proud to be working with DIRECTV, expanding the distribution of our streaming services, FOX Nation and FOX Weather, and providing more opportunities for our dedicated viewers to watch our premier content,” said said FOX News Media CEO Suzanne Scott.
FOX Nation became available to DIRECTV customers on Sunday as a premium add-on service for $5.99 per month. Customers unfamiliar with FOX Nation offers can access a limited-time offer that includes a 60-day free trial. FOX Nation is the 1960 channel on DIRECTV programming.
FOX Nation features nearly 5,000 hours of original content, including “Tucker Carlson Today”, “Tucker Carlson Originals”, “COPS”, “Crime Stories with Nancy Grace”, and “What Made America Great with Brian Kilmeade”. The platform also hosts “Yellowstone: One-Fifty”, “Grateful Nation”, “Keep the Faith”, “Clint Eastwood: American Outlaw”, “FOX Justice”, and “All American Christmas”.
A new series in five episodes, “Released to kill“, delves into the investigation behind one of the nation’s most “sadistic” serial killers, Kenneth Allen McDuff. Subscribers also get access to Fox News Channel’s prime-time programming on demand the day after their dissemination.
DIRECTV Stream also plans to add FOX Weather starting March 29. FOX Weather, which launched last year, uses multiple radar systems to notify its audience of all weather conditions.
“We want to give our customers more capabilities in how they choose to watch the content that matters most to them,” DIRECTV COO Rob Thun said. “We are excited to expand our relationship with FOX News and add value to our subscribers by offering FOX Nation and FOX Weather.”
