Fox+ launches in Hong Kong
November 2, 2017
Fox Networks Group Asia (FNGA) has launched its streaming service Fox+ in Hong Kong, as both a standalone app and on the Now TV pay-TV platform.
The service will stream blockbuster movies such as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Logan and Beauty And The Beast, as well as Chinese hits including The Adventurers, Love Off The Cuff, 29+1 and award-winning Hong Kong drama Mad World. Chinese library titles include the Ip Man trilogy, SPL sequels and classics such as A Better Tomorrow, Police Story and Once Upon A Time In China.
TV content includes shows such as The Walking Dead, American Horror Story and Ray Donovan, which will be made available at the same time as their broadcast in the US.
Previously launched in the Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan, Fox+ is available in the Apple and Google Play stores and can be used across 10 devices. In Hong Kong, Now TV users can access the service through their existing subscription, while non-Now TV subscribers can sign up for a 30-day trial period, followed by subscription fees of HK$188 (€20.60) per month.
FNGA president Zubin Gandevia commented: “Fox+ is the ultimate upgrade to any entertainment experience. You can now enjoy the best and the latest shows, movies and sports, often a full year or more before you see them anywhere else.”
Janice Lee, managing director of PCCW Media Group, added: “Now TV is pleased to further extend our long-established partnership with Fox Networks Group Asia to be the exclusive partner launching Fox+ in Hong Kong. As the largest pay-TV and a leading OTT service provider, Now TV continues to innovate and enrich our product offering to respond to customers’ needs.”
