Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) today announced the launch of a full suite of TV apps across multiple digital platforms. Branded "FOX NOW," the apps are designed to provide FOX viewers with enhanced interactive and social capabilities around their favorite FOX shows; to introduce in-app commerce opportunities for consumers, including American Express' first-of-its-kind "T-commerce" (Television Commerce) program with NEW GIRL; and to serve as the foundation for the network's longer-term plans to offer next-day full episodes of its shows to authenticated users whenever and however they wish to watch them.

Utilizing a "smart," behaviorally-activated interface, FOX NOW engagement apps connect with viewers' Facebook accounts to create a personal feed based on viewers and their friends. Users can watch clips, share photos and videos and access exclusive content from their favorite shows. In addition, they can customize their app experience based on personal tastes and stay connected through localized on-air notifications and on-demand information.

Over the coming months, full-episode streaming will be added to the FOX NOW second screen engagement apps for customers of participating cable and satellite providers.

· Video Streaming Apps: Currently live on the Windows 8 platform and Xbox for Xbox LIVE Gold members and to be launched later this year on the Samsung Smart TV platform, the FOX NOW streaming apps allow viewers to watch next-day full episodes or clips of FOX shows on their game console or streaming TV box in partnership with participating cable and satellite providers. Through inventive user interfaces and intuitive navigation, viewers will also be able engage with their favorite shows via social networks, enjoy clips and other show-related short-form content.

Each NEW GIRL episode will feature at least one exclusive item that will be available for purchase.
