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.

The last few years have transformed the way entertainment is consumed. And while the focus has shifted from cable TV to streaming on various hand-held devices, cable TV still makes up a big part of the life in the U.S. According to a recent study, Americans are now spending only 3 hours on TV per day on average, which has reduced quite a bit in comparison the previous years.

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).

Although the channel has its headquarters in New York City, most of the network’s programming and operations are handled in Los Angeles and Tempe. It was not long after 1987 that the channel became one of the most popular ones in the industry, with classic favorites such as Married with Children, The Tracey Ullman Show, and the Simpsons. Today, FOX is one of the national favorites, connecting millions of homes to top quality entertainment on different genres, across the U.S.

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.
