Fox Nation is an American subscription video streaming service. Announced on February 20, 2018, it is a companion to Fox News Channel, and carries original and acquired programming catering to topics of interest to viewers of the network.

The "Fox Nation" name originates from a website Fox News had launched in 2009, which featured blogs by conservative and liberal commentators.[1] The new service was announced for a debut in late-2018, and was described as being catered to "superfans" of Fox News (which the network deemed to be "the most loyal audience in cable, if not all of television").[2]

Programming

Some of the original programming on the service has included Nuff Said with Tyrus, What Made America Great with Brian Kilmeade, and Sincerely, Kat—hosted by The Greg Gutfeld Show panelist Kat Timpf.[3][4] Diamond and Silk had a program on Fox Nation, but were dropped by Fox News in March 2020 amid their promotion of COVID-19 misinformation.[5][6][7] In 2020, the service began to acquire outdoors programming, including acquiring streaming rights to the former A&E reality show Duck Dynasty, and premiering the original hunting series Fox Nation Outdoors.[4]

On March 29, 2021, the service began to carry Tucker Carlson Today—a spin-off of Tucker Carlson Tonight.[8] Tucker Carlson also produces original documentaries for the service under the banner Tucker Carlson Originals.[8]

In May 2021, Fox Nation began to stream Fox News Channel primetime programs (such as Hannity and Tucker Carlson Tonight) the day after their original airing, branded as "Fox News Primetime All The Time".[9] It also added a video simulcast of Dan Bongino's syndicated radio show, as part of an agreement for him to host a new Saturday night program on Fox News Channel.[10]
