Fox Business launches on TV Everywhere
Fox Business Network is now available on TV Everywhere, reports Mike Reynolds of Multichannel News.
Reynolds writes, “The Fox News app is available on iOS and Android-driven devices, while the FBN app is currently available on iOS with plans to launch later on Android. FoxBusinessGO can also be accessed through the FNC app. As such, verified users can access live streams of the networks from their websites, as well as computers, laptops, cellphones and devices
“With the mobile bows of the news and business network, 21st Century Fox continues to broaden its TVE portfolio, as Fox Sports Go live-streams games and will begin proffering content from a dedicated Big East digital network on Sept. 25, and FXNow, which has been showcasing The Simpsons, the classic animated series that is now syndicated on FXX.
“Tim Carry, executive vice president of distribution of FNC and FBN, said the mobile versions have been in beta testing over the past nine months, as Fox worked out kinks and ensured they would be available to much of the pay-tv universe.
“‘This gives viewers access to our networks, whenever and wherever they are,’ he said.
“Carry said FoxNewsGo will be available to 70 million homes through deals with 220 affiliates, including industry-leaders Comcast, DirecTV and Time Warner Cable. The tally is somewhat less for FoxBusiness Go, he said.”
