Fox News is the latest network to jump into the streaming service market because 24 hours of cable news apparently just isn't enough for its legions of "superfans." The network announced this week plans for the standalone subscription-only, streaming service, called Fox Nation. SEE ALSO: The internet trolled Trump for this roast-worthy habit during his SOTU The company didn't reveal a price for the service or programming details, though it sounds as if the service will have a similar model ad ESPN's streaming service. Fox Nation will be an extension of its existing Fox News programming rather than a place to watch, say, a repeat of the day's Fox and Friends. Instead, the service will feature new shows you won't be able to find on the network. These shows will be primarily hosted by new anchors and pundits, though hosts like Sean Hannity will make regular appearances as well, according to The New York Times.

We all have our favorite websites, news topics and eBay items that we like to check out every day. Some of us have 10 to 15 websites bookmarked and others have 50, 100, 200 or more. If it takes an average of 3-4 minutes to check out each page for updated news, scan headlines and then navigate to the next bookmarked website, a lot of time adds up in daily visits to those sites. And if you’re one of those people who craves information and feels compelled to check those same websites over and over again in case something has been updated… well, you could be wasting a lot of time and energy.

YouTube TV, the $35-per-month live TV service aimed at cable cord cutters, launched in April. At the time I lauded its potential, but complained about the experience on an actual TV: namely, the need to stream using a Chromecast and a phone as the remote control.Competitors in the fast-moving TV streaming space launched with TV apps for Roku, Apple TV and others, but YouTube said it would cater to millennials initially with just a phone app. It promised actual big-screen apps for devices other than Chromecast by the end of the year.Soon YouTube TV will fulfill that promise on numerous TV-connected gadgets, namely streamers and game consoles, as well as actual Smart TVs. That means you can browse and watch the service's shows, movies and videos using actual physical buttons on a remote or game controller, without having to touch your phone or PC.Here's the official list of devices that will get the app: Nvidia Shield TV Sony TVs with Android TV … [Read more...] about YouTube TV app coming soon to Roku, Apple TV, Xbox and more
