Rogers to Launch Citytv NOW, FX NOW Streaming Services in September
If you’re a fan of Citytv and FX, Rogers Media has announced both channels will launch streaming services this September.
Citytv NOW and FX NOW will bring current and past seasons of shows, on-demand. According to the company, users will be able to view streaming services on iOS, Android, TV Everywhere platforms, set-top boxes and on the web from a browser (Citytv.com and FXNowCanada.ca).
“Marrying the immersive experience of premium and prime-time television with the immediacy of on-demand, the Citytv NOW and FX NOW streaming services are a natural extension of the viewer experience,” said Colette Watson, Senior Vice President of Television & Broadcast Operations, Rogers Media, in an issued statement to iPhone in Canada.
“With immediate post-broadcast catch-up and binge-anytime content from current and past seasons, this is also an exciting opportunity for our sales partners to align their brands with the shows that audiences are actively seeking out, and a great way for television service providers to enrich their offerings for subscribers,” added Watson.
Citytv NOW will offer new episodes immediately for all current prime-time series, while FX NOW will similarly include the same, plus have over 500 episodes of premium content.
Rogers Media says both streaming services will be “ad-supported and subscriber authenticated.”
Rogers also offers Sportsnet NOW, which offers live sports streaming at the price of $24.99 per month, available from all devices.
