The iconic lyrics of “Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?” that some associate with the 1990s due to the television show “Cops” will be making a return following its cancelation last year.
Fox News announced that its streaming service Fox Nation will be the home for “Cops” and will return with new episodes that appear alongside other first responder programming.
Paramount Network was the home for the show; however, after the death of George Floyd, the channel decided to cancel the show in June 2020. Nonetheless, Fox Nation president Jason Klarman is more than happy to have the program as part of its streaming service.
“COPS is one of the most iconic brands on television with an incredibly passionate fan base,” Klarman said.
“We wanted to show our appreciation to all first responders by combining the launch with a free one-year subscription to give back in a small way to those who place their lives on the line every day to keep us safe.
With Fox Nation now having first responders programming on its streaming service, the network plans to offer all first responders, including police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, and paramedics, a one-year free subscription beginning Sept. 13.
CBS Transitioning From CBSN to New Streaming Service Platform
The identity change assists in sealing a broader concept of a fluid unit as CBS emphasizes national and local newsgathering.
In 2014, CBSN made the first attempt by one of the traditional broadcast networks to dip its toes into the news streaming game. However, now in 2021, CBS News has plans to phase out CBSN later this year.
A spokesperson for CBS News confirmed the different direction that the company is taking with its new platform, CBS News. Employees who staff the streaming service will be moving to the studio previously utilized by “CBS This Morning,” which left for Times Square.
“As a unified organization, we’ll offer a choreography of coverage across all of our platforms, that includes unparalleled, expansive on-the-ground reporting from New York to L.A., Chicago to Dallas, London to Beijing, and everywhere in between,” Neeraj Khemlani said.
“We’re not just seeing streaming growth nationally. CBS local news streaming is growing year-over-year as well. By unifying these organizations, we’re building on this momentum,” Wendy McMahon said.
Execs at various media outlets such as CNN, NBC News, MSNBC, ABC News, and Fox News establish more attention on streaming news services.
