The way America likes to watch TV has been redefined with the fast growth of social media and video streaming platforms, not to forget smartphones and other internet enabled mobile devices. In recent years the digital revolution has transformed the way people consume TV, especially among the Millennials and Gen-Z.

But interestingly, according to a Nielson study, streaming accounted for only  27% of total screen time in June 2021, with linear TV (cable & broadcast) still ruling the world of video consumption in the US at 40% and 23% respectively. It is however noteworthy that while linear TV is still pretty much relevant in the American society, statistics reflect a generation gap in TV consumption which is likely to grow with time, because younger adults spend fewer hours glued to the TV. On average all 18 adults watch a little over 4 hours of TV everyday.

Not only do people like to keep themselves updated with what’s happening around the globe, but want to catch on their favorite TV entertainment via cable and broadcast TV networks. And, as the experience of watching TV via Cable becomes more contemporary with service providers like Cox Communications, it appears unlikely the charm of broadcast and cable TV would die out anytime soon.  

FOX: The 4th Network!

One big reason why broadcast and cable TV networks are still very much watched around the US, is the content showcased by some of the biggest names in the history of TV entertainment. For instance, the Fox Broadcasting Company or FOX, which surfaced back in 1986 as the “fourth network” anticipated to challenge the Big Three (ABC, NBC, CBS).

With sitcoms like Married with Children and the sketchy comedy TV series The Tracey Ullman Show, which premiered to inaugurate the Sunday night lineup on FOX in 1987, and The Simpsons which saw its debut in the 1989-90 TV season, FOX set itself up for a glorious long-haul in TV entertainment. It was not long before the 4th network became a household name across the US. And came to hold a special spot in the U.S. media landscape, bringing great content from an array of genres to millions of viewers.

Besides the flagship property of the Fox Corporation i.e. the Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX), over the years FX, FXM, FOX News, FOX Business, FOX Sports, and FOX Deportes also launched, albeit under a 2019 deal FX and FXM, changed hands and are now owned by The Walt Disney Company.
