The new agreement extends the deal through 2019
SiriusXM and Fox News have entered a new agreement to allow the satellite radio company to become the exclusive audio home of Fox News and Fox Business Network.
As part of the deal, SiriusXM will add both channels to its lineup, which boasts 25 million subscribers.
The new agreement also includes the addition of Fox News Talk to the internet radio service. Fox News Talk offers news, analysis, listener call-ins, and commentary from Fox News personalities such as Brian Kilmeade, John Gibson and Alan Colmes.
Roger Ailes, chairman and chief executive office, Fox News stated, “Our viewers love the ability to keep the connection with Fox News Channel, even while they're in the car with SiriusXM. This agreement not only ensures that will continue but expands it to our Fox Business Network viewers and restores the Fox News Talk channel to SiriusXM subscribers on their computers and smart phones. This is good for Fox News, for SiriusXM and for the people we both work for, the American public.”
Fox News will be carried on SiriusXM through Aug. 2019.
