Seems that we have lost access to Faux News via Sky TV in the UK. Not viable apparently with less than 2000 viewers daily across the UK.

I didn't read anywhere that this was due to happen, just channel surfing to get the latest news from Texas and the usual Faux News slot in the channel line up had gone !

to be honest...it won't be missed, at least by me, I only ever surfed through and shook my head at the bias reporting and quite ridiculous talking heads on their ' News? ' programs.
Bye bye Sean Hannity and the other blockheads.

Will my fellow UK ATSers miss their Fox News Fix on on Sky ?

Don't mind it tbh but CNN is a total #show,
CNN is good for a laugh, but not for news.

LMAO that the TV channels in Britain for crafts (women making things with stickers and cardboard) manage to survive over a massive corporation like Fox news. Never watched it myself but if it's all Trump Trump Trump I'd get bored quickly. I think it's boring enough on ATS with all the Trump discussions cluttering the place up, at least I can ignore them, don't even read them anymore the polarised arguments are so predictable.

Apparently, this is a business decision by FOX executives.


Fox News will no longer air in the United Kingdom, its parent company 21st Century Fox announced, with its U.K. feed ending Tuesday afternoon.



"We have concluded that it is not in our commercial interest to continue providing Fox News in the U.K."


Fox News no longer airing in the UK

Less than 2000 viewers? Crikey.

Who calls CNN Faux News?

Fox watchers.

I only knew we had FOX thanks to flicking through channels to see what they were saying on US Election Day.

Same time I found out we got CNN

It won't be missed really. There's always online if the 2000 are desperate.

Never felt the need to watch Fox News , I always classed it as Faux News akin to ITV , full of gossip , celebrity and poorly presented stories rather than real news.

Isn't Sky News kinda like UK Fox News anyway , both part of the Murdoch empire.

Just curious are you an American? If not, I find your strong view of a news channel in a different country kind of funny and strange. I could care less what the BCC said or didn't say as example...hehe

I guess it is similar...long repetitive coverage of events filling up their programming.
But in a way .. all channels do that. And they all show bias. Newsprint is dying a death, perhaps tv channel news will go the same way ?

First all I'm fairly certain you're going to hear the word Trump mentioned more often on your beloved liberal news sources rather than Fox. CNN was complaining about Trump during the brunt of the recent hurricane whereas Fox was at least covering the storm.

Have fun living in your socialist echo chamber paradise you call the UK because trust me no one is jealous of you.

EDIT: also you want to talk about bias, which news outlet here looks the most balanced to you:

Socialist? I hope you're joking. This country is a hive of capitalist exploitation with a government that goes out of it's way to victimize the poor and vulnerable so that it's friends in the city can steal what little wealth we have.

We have worse upwards social mobility than America, the wealth inequality here is worse, welfare is surprisingly worse as well. Healthcare will probably become worse soon enough when the Tories finally end the NHS after rendering it totally impotent.

This country currently exists as a monument to failure of austerity policies and the dangers of letting the free market run rampant unchecked.

America is more "socialist" (wrong use of the word of course) than Britain nowadays.

After watching what has happened in the UK over the last several years I don't think it's a silly statement at all. As I see it the UK is basically the NWO's testing ground for new progressive policies. I know this because the AU isn't far behind following all the dumb nonsense they do.

Well I guess you have the right to think that but I feel you may have misinterpreted the facts if that is the conclusion you have arrived at.

No strong views either way...it is just an entertainment channel after all. It has the same effect as losing CBS Reality...a channel which plays Judge Judy over and over again.

You obviously didn't read their post.

Their wealth distribution is more extreme than the states, hence the irony in calling them socialist.
