Fox News Channel is expected to announce the planned launch of a new subscription streaming service, Fox Nation, that won't require a pay TV subscription and will feature new original programming separate from Fox News Channel, The New York Times reported on Monday (Feb. 19).

The report, quoting John Finley, who oversees program development and production at Fox News, said the price of the service was still being discussed.
