Fox News Channel not available for live streaming

Fox News Channel not available for live streaming

Can someone tell me why  Fox News Channel, the MOST WATCHED cable channel, is not available for computer live streaming?   Is this related to the fact that Comcast is now affiliated with NBC?  Unfortunately for those of us who have no choice in cable providers also have no choice in TV cable news to watch on our computers.  Shame on Comcast.

Fox wants more money and Comcast doesn't want to pay?

FNC was the most watched about a week ago when there was a lot of news going on--and it would make sense for a news channel to be that at times like that--but it's certainly not most watched cable channel in general.

 

That said, what other news channels does Comcast offer as far as live streaming?  Aside from CNN and HLN it doesn't seem like Comcast even offers its own MSNBC, for example.  In fact, there are only a few channels offered when it comes to live streaming in general.  So, definitely not some sort of a (political) conspiracy.

Re: Fox News Channel not available for live streaming

I just found this out after watching CNN live on my iPad .... Wanted to switch over to catch more on a particular story and found no access, I can't believe it!!! I pay close to $300 a month for my Comcast/xfinity bundle and resent being blocked out of anything online that is part of my channel line up.

Was access to all live TV online and/or mobile devices something that was advertised or listed as being available somewhere with Comcast?
