The company’s Founders Program includes four tiers, going from basic ($60 for a one-year subscription and a “Fox Nation founder challenge coin”) to all-inclusive ($1,200 for a three-year subscription, a “Fox Nation founder tactical watch” and gift box with other Fox Nation swag like the coin, hat, glasses and a medal).
As the Founders Program kicks off Sunday, Fox News will air an hour-long special, Fox Nation First Look, at 8 p.m. ET. That program will highlight the streaming service’s upcoming programs and talent.
When Fox Nation launches, it will include exclusive content from many of the network’s most popular stars, including its primetime trio of Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson, as well as Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume. Those stars and others will offer signature content and exclusive access with everything from deep dives into the big issues of the day to daily short- and long-form programming.
Fox Nation will be the third streaming news network from a major news organization to have launched by year’s end. CBS News’ CBSN was first on the scene in 2014 and Wednesday, NBC News shared details about NBC News Signal, which it quietly rolled out earlier this month.
