Fox Networks Group this week announced that Fox Now, its main app for streaming shows like Empire and Prison Break, has gained additional content from the company's other networks, including FX, FXX, and National Geographic (via Variety). The update arrives first on iOS and tvOS and will continue to roll out on other devices throughout the year.

In total, around 500 hours of TV shows will now be available on Fox Now, which also includes a live TV feature and access to popular films. Users will have to provide a log-in for a paid TV provider in order to gain access to the four channels' content within the app. On Apple TV, Fox Now does support Single Sign-On, letting users sign into the Apple TV once and access all of the content available to them across devices.

fox now update
Existing streaming apps for FX and National Geographic -- FX Now and Nat Geo TV, respectively -- will continue to function as normal. Now, users will simply have Fox's updated app as a hub experience for the collection of channels to watch a wider variety of shows, including Fox's 24: Legacy, FX's The Americans, FXX's You're The Worst, and National Geographic's Genius.

Fox Now has also gained a UI update with the addition of new channels, featuring full-screen video across the app "to emulate the look and feel of linear TV," as well as the ability to "restart" live TV so users can go back to the beginning of a broadcast if they're late. There's also a personalized For You section, and the app will curate shows for users by networks and genres.

The latest Fox Now app update “represents a significant increase in our capabilities and focus, and ensures our viewers will always have the best experience possible when watching our award-winning television brands,” said Brian Sullivan, president and COO of Fox Networks’ Digital Consumer Group.

Each user will be able to access their Fox Profile to see customized favorites, recommendations, notifications, and continue watching the next episode in a series, all of which will sync across devices. The Fox Now app can be downloaded from the iOS App Store [Direct Link] and tvOS App Store for free.

That has been like that for a while now. I saw that one day, and was confused. Some message came up saying you now have access to these channels. But I never paid that much attention to it. Just proceeded to use both apps. Fox and FX.

There's approximately 0 people in the USA who have Fox on cable, but not FX, FXX, and National Geographic, and also own an AppleTV.
This is simply not true.

I cannot speak for the rest of the USA, but as for me, I switch Cable providers very often. I am lucky enough to have two Cable providers service my home, and I constantly switch back and forth between Comcast and FiOS to get good promotional deals.

Most of the time, I usually get an Internet plan with a TV-lite plan. These plans are about $5-$10 more than just internet alone, and usually only have local channels, and a premium channel or two. I use the plan until either the rates increase, or the premium channel promotion, such as HBO free for 3 months, expires.

Basically, it is not very often for me to have all FOX, FX, FXX, and NG. I also own lots of ATVs.

Right now I currently have access to all those channels, but I plan on switching again when Game of Thrones comes out to get an HBO promotion.

Again, I can't speak for the rest of the US, but I doubt I am the only person to do this, as it saves me hundreds of dollars a year.
