SiriusXM and FOX News Media have agreed to extend an exclusivity agreement guaranteeing the network stays on the satellite radio app’s designated channels.
The companies cemented a new long-term agreement with exclusive audio rights from FOX News Channel and FOX Business Network. SiriusXM agreed to continue producing the FOX News Headlines 24/7 Channel. FOX News On-Demand Audio, FOX News’ top-rated program, will stay on the app. This means you can still listen to Fox News even if you don’t want to pay for cable TV thanks to SiriusXM.
“We value our relationship with SiriusXM and are pleased to extend our broadcast agreement, ensuring their audience continued access to their favorite FOX News personalities and powerful primetime lineup,” said Jay Wallace, president and executive editor of FOX News Media.
The new agreement guarantees FOX News Media a spot on the app’s designated channels. FOX News Channel will air on Channel 114, FOX Business Group on Channel 113, and FOX News Headlines 24/7 on Channel 115. Audio from FOX News Channel’s The Five, Special Report with Bret Baier, The Ingraham Angle, Jesse Watters Primetime, Hannity, Gutfeld!, and FOX News @ Night With Trace Gallagher will be on-demand to SiriusXM members.
