Fox TV Stations to Carry Bounce TV
November 3, 2011
NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES: Fox has agreed to carry Bounce TV on Fox-owned
MyNetwork TV affiliate subchannels, the networks announced today. Bounce is the
over-the-air network targeting African American households, launched last month
specifically for carriage on broadcast digital subchannels. Fox will carry
Bounce in its MyNet markets that include the two biggest TV markets in the
nation--New York and Los Angeles.
“With the addition of these FOX markets, Bounce TV will already cover more than
70 percent of African American households in the United States,” said Martin
Luther King III, member of Bounce TV’s founding group and board of directors.
“By launching Bounce TV as a free, over-the-air broadcast network, Fox is
ensuring that viewers stay connected to the community without being saddled by
additional pay TV financial burdens. We will continue to make the pioneering
Bounce TV a popular destination and brand for all Americans.”
