The official Fox Nation launch announcement arrives after Fox News first confirmed the service in February.

Fox Nation will be competing with other streaming news services but unlike most of the other offerings, Fox Nation is charging a monthly subscription fee.

This week, NBC News confirmed that its upcoming streaming news network will be called Signal and will tailor its programming to reach a predominantly younger audience. Signal, like CBS’s streaming news networks CBSN, will be free to view and ad-supported.
