Fox News enters new battleground in cable weather

Cable news wars? How about weather streaming news wars?

Fox News Media is venturing into the weather news industry with this week’s launch of Fox Weather, an effort to bolster its streaming services and amass a larger audience outside of politics and sports.

With its big bet on weather, Fox is entering a crowded field of climate news providers, where it will compete daily with smartphone apps, local television broadcasts and household-name brands like The Weather Channel and Accuweather.
