Fox Sports will stream digital video from KPN Digital News, which will begin on Monday, Jan. 23.
KPN has a reputation for delivering high-quality digital video, and this is a new format that will help it expand its reach in the digital space.
KDN will offer up-to-the-minute digital video news and events, breaking news, exclusive content, entertainment, sport, and business stories.
For example, it will offer an all-new, weekly edition of KDN’s weekly show, The Sports Report, which was the first digital-only channel to broadcast in the United States.
The KDN show will feature live interviews with leading sportswriters, news personalities, and industry insiders.
For instance, KDN host Michael Rothstein will join the hosts of the NBC Sports Network and ESPN’s First Take to discuss sports topics from the inside out.
Rothstein is a former New York Times sports columnist and has written extensively about the NBA, including his 2016 book, “The Inside Story of the Golden State Warriors.”
The KPN show will be available on mobile devices through Apple Newsstand, Google Play, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Roku Player.
The channel also plans to roll out a digital content portal on YouTube for its flagship channel, KPN Sports, that will stream all-access content from the network’s website and mobile app.
In the digital news space, KTN has been a leader in digital video and content production since its inception in 2011, according to a press release from KTN.
The news channel will also stream new KDN digital video of KPN’s daily show, “KDN Live” every morning, which airs live from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., as well as other exclusive content.
The digital video portal will include more than 300 hours of exclusive content on the KDN site and YouTube, including a weekly special, which is the second-highest-rated KDN program, behind only KDN Sports’ “KTN Live.”
“Kdn Live” will be broadcast on KDN and the KTN digital video portals, and will be part of a two-year, $1 million deal that KTN struck with NBCUniversal.
