NBC News NOW said it will begin streaming Sky News Today with Wilfred Frost starting Monday, November 13, a move which expands the network’s daily weekday lineup into internationally-based coverage.
Sky News Today with Wilfred Frost will start streaming at 5:00 a.m. on weekday mornings on NBC News NOW, NBC News’ free streaming network, marking the platform’s first expansion into early morning hours.
“We’re delighted that Sky News Today with Wilfred Frost will be NBC News NOW’s first program originating from out of the U.S. and that more people around the world will be able to watch our award-winning journalism,” said David Rhodes, Sky News’ group executive chairman.
This is the first time a Sky News program will be simulcast on the streaming service and the first NBC News Now show to be produced outside of the U.S., filmed in Sky News’ London headquarters.
Since launching in 2019, NBC News NOW has been one of the fastest-growing streaming news networks in the U.S., offering more live programs than any other free platform. By adding Sky News Today with Wilfred Frost, the network hosts more than 12 live weekday hours of news coverage.
NBC News NOW continues to bring in audiences, and in October, the network marked its best quarter and best month on record. And on Wednesday, NBC’s coverage of the Republican Presidential debate netted the network’s largest audience ever.
“Amid unrelenting and consequential news events from around the world, we are pleased to partner with our colleagues at Sky News in bringing the most informative premium news from top journalists across the globe to our viewers,” said Janelle Rodriguez, NBC News executive vice president of programming.
NBC News NOW is available on Peacock, the Amazon Fire News App, Freevee, FuboTV, Google TV, Hulu Live, LG, Local Now, Plex, Pluto TV, Samsung TV Plus, The Roku Channel, Tubi, Xfinity X1, Xumo, YouTube TV, NBCNews apps, and internationally through Sky UK and Virgin Media.
