Fox News Is Off The Air In The UK

Fox News will no longer air in the United Kingdom as of Tuesday afternoon, 21st Century Fox has announced.

“21st Century Fox has decided to cease providing a feed of Fox News Channel in the U.K.,” Fox News said in a statement to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Fox News has some major competition in the U.K., like British-based news organizations BBC and ITV, but has continued to dominate ratings in the U.S.

“Fox News is focused on the U.S. market and designed for a U.S. audience and, accordingly, it averages only a few thousand viewers across the day in the U.K.,” they continued in their statement.

The announcement comes as Fox News finished August as the most-watched channel on basic cable, continuing to be the most watched in the U.S. for the 14th consecutive month in a row.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Fox News about the specifics of the matter but did not receive a response in time for publication.
