Fox News on Samsung TV Plus

Like most free ad-supported streaming television (FAST) platforms, Samsung TV Plus doesn’t directly host cable channels and provides streaming-only alternatives to tune in to.

While Fox News is missing from the service’s channel lineup, you can catch up with the live, non-stop coverage of breaking news of the day on LiveNOW from Fox (1006), Fox News’ over-the-top counterpart (formerly Fox News Now) that launched in 2020.

Albeit smaller in scope, the streaming-only news channel utilizes resources and raw footage from Fox’s local news departments, so you can expect the same hard-hitting journalism you come to expect from the network.

If you’re in one of the following areas, you’ll also have access to your local FOX-affiliated news station (1035) on Samsung TV Plus:

Memphis Jacksonville Tulsa
Cincinnati Birmingham New Orleans
Salt Lake

Besides Fox News and your local news station, you can find the following news channels on the service:

  • Newsmax (1027)
  • CNN Replay (1009)
  • CBS News (1005)
  • ABC News Live (1007)
  • NBC News Now (1008)
  • Bloomberg TV+ UHD (1015)
  • TODAY All Day (1019)
  • USA Today (1023)
  • Sky News (1013)

How to Watch LiveNOW from Fox on Samsung TV Plus?

As long as you have a compatible Samsung Smart TV (manufactured in 2016 or later) that has internet access over Wi-Fi or Ethernet, you’re good to go. Press the Samsung TV Plus button on your TV remote to launch the app, then press the CH Up or Down button to switch to Channel 1006 for LiveNOW from Fox.

You can also access TV Plus on your Tizen-enabled television by pressing the HOME remote button and selecting the respective tile in the apps row of your Home Screen, Home Bar, or Smart Hub menu. Pressing the GUIDE button (or holding down either CH button) brings up the EPG menu, where you can navigate to the news channel you want to watch.

Galaxy mobile and tablet (Android 8.0 and newer) users can stream LiveNOW from Fox on the go via the Samsung TV Plus mobile app preloaded on the devices. If not installed, get it from the Galaxy Store or Google Play Store.

Notably, the mobile app allows casting to Chromecast-enabled devices. Hence, even if you don’t have a Samsung Smart TV, you can watch live news on your big screen. You may also visit samsungtvplus.com from your browser to catch the channel.
