Fox is launching Fox Soul, a live, ad-supported streaming channel geared toward an African American audience.
The free channel will include original content along with existing content from Fox. The company said that Fox Soul will “aim to celebrate black culture and highlight the real topics that affect the everyday lives of the African-American community through frank and insightful dialogue with local and national influencers.”
We are proud to debut this African-American focused channel, created by and for the members of the black community. We intend to inform, inspire, and empower our viewers by meeting their needs for authentic conversations on topics relevant to our lives,” said James DuBose, head of programming for Fox Soul.
Original programming will air weeknights from 6pm PT – 10pm PT, followed by two hours of local Fox programming. Original shows will include an interactive element that Fox says will set them apart. Fox Soul invites viewers to call the shows directly and interact with hosts, either through the main streaming app or via social media. “Audience participation is central to the mission of the channel, ” the announcement said.
Fox Soul is available via apps for iPhone, Android, Apple TV, FireTV or on the web at foxsoul.tv.
