New FXNow app takes more TV shows online

  • 21st Century Fox (FOXA) starts rolling out an app that will give viewers access to shows from its FX Networks.
  • Viewers will have access to 45 to 60 movies a month on top of original programming on their mobile devices through the FXNow app.
  • Customers of AT&T's U-verse, Comcast, Cablevision, and Suddenlink are among those that can access the service, while negotiations are still under way to add more Pay-TV operators.
  • The advantage for the broadcaster is that the service is supported by advertisements, giving the company a crack at capturing revenue from consumers that prefer delayed viewing of shows.
  • What to watch: The list of participating Pay-TV operators is impressive enough that a tipping pointing could be reached where any holdouts (DISH, DTV, TWC) face a competitive disadvantage by not allowing customers access to FXNow.
