MSNBC Is Planning on Launching a Standalone Streaming Service This Year

Recently Fox News announced plans to launch a standalone streaming service for cord cutters. Now it looks like MSNBC will follow Fox News’s lead by launching their own cord cutting service.

According to a report from Variety, MSNBC is hiring staff to help create the new streaming service. This new service will be made up of original programs created specifically for the new streaming service. While some hosts from MSNBC News will be on the network, don’t look for live streams of your favorite MSNBC programs.

From the looks of it MSNBC’s new streaming service will work just like Fox News’s new streaming service. According to reports, MSNBC is rushing to get their service out this year to beat or at least launch shortly after Fox News’s own streaming service.

So why is Fox News and MSNBC just not offering a live feed of their current cable networks? Sources say that both Fox and NBC don’t want to upset cable networks who are paying big dollars to carry the news networks. It looks like Fox and NBC both see original content as a way to reach cord cutters without endangering their lucrative deals with cable companies. So if you still want access to MSNBC’s cable feed you will still need a service like Sling TV.
