Fox debuts Fox Local app

May 5, 2023

Fox Television Stations (FTS) has debuted its Fox Local app for streaming on connected televisions in the US. The free, user-friendly app is available across key platforms highlighting news, weather and programming from the Fox-owned stations in Washington DC, Atlanta and Detroit markets, with all stations set to launch this summer.

Jeff Zellmer, Senior Vice President, Digital Operations at FTS, commented: “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.”

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 DC, Fox 5 in Atlanta and Fox 2 in Detroit. Upon logging into the Fox Local app, users choose their market so they can stream local, live newscasts, get breaking news and weather, and find local programming from the Fox station most relevant to them. The app also provides access to national live streaming coverage from “LiveNOW from Fox,” Fox Soul and Fox Weather.

Patrick Paolini, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Fox-owned duopoly in Washington DC, added: “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 programmes they trust.”
