During this unprecedented time access to straightforward, opinion-free news is more important than ever. Now, for a limited time, there are even more ways to access Newsy’s 24-hour news coverage:

  • All Verizon FIOS, AT&T U-verse and DISH subscribers can now access Newsy’s pay TV channel.
  • Xfinity video customers with an X1 set top box can now watch Newsy’s cable channel programs on-demand. Subscribers can access content airing live on the Newsy channel in addition to programming from the previous 12 hours.

This includes access to Newsy’s live shows including “Morning Rush,” “The Briefing,” “The Why,” and “Newsy Tonight” in addition to continuous live updates from agencies and governments coast to coast. Newsy looks at how Americans are making the best of a new normal, COVID-19’s spread, hospital updates, and the government’s stimulus plan.

Newsy, rated by Ad Fontes Media as the most neutral and reliable cable news network, has distribution agreements covering nearly 40 million pay TV subscribers and is a leader in over-the-top television, available on nearly every streaming platform.
