Streaming services are all the rage right now. We love how easy and convenient it is to binge-watch our favorite shows and movies.

More and more people are moving away from the traditional television set and watching shows online. With that in mind, Fox is taking an innovative step that will make watching their programming more convenient and flexible for its viewers. We'll give you the skinny on what they are up to and how you could benefit from the move.

Fox Broadcasting Company began live streaming prime-time programming this week across its digital platforms. Viewers can catch a simulcast of the programming on Fox.com and the Fox Now app for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android, Kindle Fire and Google Chromecast.

Fox is the first broadcast network offering a live stream of its prime-time programming to pay TV customers. Their programming will now reach over 98 percent of pay TV subscribers in all 210 television markets across the U.S. The service will be available seven nights a week, along with special late-night programming on Saturdays.

Local Fox affiliates won't be left out of the streaming service. They will be able to display their stations' branding and insert local-market ads into the programming.

If you haven't entered the world of streaming yet, take a look at our guide on buying a streaming video gadget for some advice.
