SINGAPORE, 3 MAY 2017 – FOX Networks Group Asia today launches FOX+ in Singapore, the first and only video-streaming service in Asia promising an unrivalled combination of the latest TV series, first-run Hollywood blockbusters, hit Chinese series and movies, live sports, thrilling documentaries and one of the world’s biggest back catalogues of content all in one place, accessible from any device, at any time and in high definition.
The FOX+ app, which comes with an initial 30-day promotional trial, will showcase the latest TV series shown on the same day as the US and the latest movies shortly after theatrical release, both often one full year before becoming available on other subscription services. Viewers can watch anytime, anywhere, making the daily commute or lunchtime at the office an opportunity to catch up on the latest happenings from your favourite shows or movies.
Particularly important for sports fans is the live streaming service, a key feature that allows users to watch wherever they may be when the action kicks off.
Singaporeans can now browse more than 11,000 hours of programming across multiple genres, embracing the most popular content from global movie studios and television channels, as well as original FOX programming such as National Geographic original series, Genius and Mars. Viewers can also already enjoy blockbuster movies such as Deadpool, X-Men: Apocalypse, Kung Fu Panda 3 and The Revenant, or binge watch every season of shows such as The Walking Dead, Homeland, The Young Pope or 24 Legacy.
Specially-curated for users in Asia, fans of Chinese and Asian movies are able to watch first-run and popular box office hits or tune in to the latest variety or hit drama series such as 惊心破 (Heartfall Arises), S 风暴 (S Storm), 叶问3 (Ip Man 3), 尸杀列车 (Train To Busan), and型男大主厨 (Stylish Man The Chef), with access to an extensive back catalogue of past seasons including Classic Chinese drama series like 银狐 (The Silver Tycoon) and 胜者为王 (Who’s the Winner).
Another unparalleled key offering includes the app having one of the most extensive back catalogues of any video-streaming service, enabling users to stream or download the latest episodes while also having the opportunity to go back and watch every episode from the first season onwards.
