Fox And DISH Network Partner Up To Provide Content Online Only For Pay TV Subscribers

Trying to watch FOX online? If you can’t enter their site and get free access to their shows you are a part of the millions of people locked out by FOX. Starting this Fall FOX TV online will require a subscription to Hulu Plus or a participating cable or satellite company. DISH Network is the first and the only provider currently offering its customers access to the Fox online site. Fox is the first broadcast network to drive cable cutters towards paying for TV. They have followed in the footsteps of ESPN, ESPN3, the WatchESPN app and EPIX who have already required “authentication” from their viewers. This initiative started on August 15th, 2011 and requires those who are not a subscriber of DISH Network or Hulu Plus, wait 8 days before they can watch new Fox content online. This means your favorite new shows like tonight’s season premiere of ‘X-Factor’ or fan favorites like ‘The Simpsons’ or ‘Family Guy’, you will have to wait eight days until you can preview it online. There is an easy fix for those who are currently stuck behind the pay TV wall. DISH Network makes the switch easy offering subscribers premium packages starting at $19.99/mo., why would you wait to switch! New DISH customers also receive Blockbuster unlimited accesses free for three months. Get access to unlimited DVDs by mail and in-store exchanges with over 100,000 titles to choose from. To order your satellite TV programming package, visit us at Dish-Systems or call (888)566-3979. What is your favorite show on Fox?
