Fox Nation, Fox News’ subscription video service priced at $5.99 per month, is launching on Comcast’s Xfinity video platforms.

The service is now available to Comcast’s Xfinity TV customers on Xfinity On Demand and to internet-only customers on Xfinity Flex nationwide. It will also be available through the Xfinity Stream app.

Fox Nation is adding Comcast to its list of supported platforms, including iOS and Android devices as well as Apple TV, web, Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast and Xbox One.

“We’ve seen an incredible demand for Fox Nation since we launched the streaming service last fall and we’re excited to further expand our reach across Comcast’s millions of Xfinity customers,” said John Finley, executive vice president of development for Fox News, in a statement.

A Fox News spokesperson declined to give an update on Fox Nation’s subscriber total, but pointed toward a recent interview with Finley where he said the service was on pace to meet Fox New’s internal projections for the fiscal year that ended in June.

Fox News, which launch in November 2018, stands out among competing news streaming services by using a subscription model. Both CBS News and NBC News have standalone streaming services for news, but both are ad-supported.

Fox News has been able to maintain high viewership numbers on traditional cable viewership for years, and its digital service is geared toward providing more content for “Fox News superfans.”

“This initiative will capitalize on providing that viewer, who is among the most affluent and well educated in cable, with a highly specialized content experience on a platform they can watch anytime, anywhere,” Finley said in 2018.
