Earlier this year, Fox began pushing out a similar live national feed to fellow vMVPD Hulu.

According to the Wall Street Journal (sub. req.), the national feed of Fox in July was made available on Hulu’s live TV service in up to 70 markets—including Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Birmingham, Alabama—where Fox had yet to reach streaming deals with its affiliates and station groups.

FuboTV does have live local streaming deals with 28 Fox affiliates—including stations in Denver, Indianapolis, Miami, Salt Lake City, San Diego and Seattle—as well as deals with 17 Fox owned and operated stations in big markets including Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C.
