Fox Weather Streaming Service Adds Roku, Xumo, FuboTV, Amazon, YouTube Distribution

Fox Weather, the ad-supported streaming television (FAST) service launched last October, will now be available on YouTube TV, Amazon News, The Roku Channel, FuboTV and Comcast-owned Xumo.

Additionally, the full linear service will be accessible on Fox Television Stations’ Diginet channels in 17 markets and select simulcast hours on FTS duopoly stations across the country.

“We are excited to significantly expand our distribution footprint and deliver Fox Weather’s coverage to millions of viewers on many of television’s most popular streaming services and devices,” Sharri Berg, president of the platform, said in a statement.

Fox Weather made its debut on Amazon News on Fire TV and Fire Tablet yesterday and was added to the channel lineup of YouTube TV last week. The service is also now available on The Roku Channel and will launch later this month on Xumo and FuboTV.

Additionally, the platform will now be accessible across FTS’s Diginet footprint in New York, Seattle, and San Francisco, with plans to expand to the station group’s remaining 14 markets. The streaming service will also simulcast one hour per weekday and two hours on weekends on FTS’s 11 duopoly stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Dallas, San Francisco, Houston, Seattle, Phoenix, Minneapolis and Orlando. Fox Television Stations owns and operates 29 full power broadcast television stations in the U.S. These include stations located in nine of the top ten largest designated market areas, or DMAs, as well as the duopolies in 11 DMAs. Of these stations, 18 are affiliated with the FOX Network.

After launching, Fox Weather claimed to become the most-downloaded free app on Google Play and the Apple App Store, delivering more than 1 million downloads in its first week. The streaming service has rolled out expanded distribution over the past three months on Fox Business Network, as well as on Tubi and Fox Nation, the politically driven subscription streaming video service. The Fox Weather app is also available for iPad.
