(Reuters) – Fox News International, the international streaming service that is part of Rupert Murdoch's Fox Corp, launches December 17th in Chile, Panama and Portugal, expanding its global reach to 30 countries.
The service, which launched in Mexico in August, is available on platforms such as Android, Apple (NASDAQ 🙂 TV, and Android TV. It offers live streams from the Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network, as well as 20 on-demand programs.
Fox News International is part of Fox's effort to expand its business beyond cable television, which is declining industry-wide as consumers cut their cables and switch to streaming. Next year the company will launch Fox Weather, a new ad-supported streaming service – its eighth platform.
Streaming also attracts a younger audience. According to a 2019 poll by the Pew Research Center, Americans 65 and older make up 37% of those who say their main source is Fox News, compared to 21% of all adults.
