Fox News and Formula 1 are launching their own streaming services.

Fox Nation will "take a deep dive into the big issues of the day with live exclusives, daily streaming content and long-form programming only available to subscribers". It won't include the Fox News Channel, except for archive footage, though it will feature the channel's hosts and personalities in more opinion-led broadcasts.

It will also feature interactive features like polls and Q&A sessions.

F1 TV, meanwhile, will let viewers follow races live from the drivers' perspective thanks to cameras mounted atop all 20 drivers' cars. You can watch multiple streams simultaneously in split-screen, including stats and the main race footage.

"You can go head-to-head with Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel as they battle for second place – and actually go side-by-side and look at the view from each of their cars," said Frank Arthofer, Formula 1's head of digital.

It will launch in April. But not in the UK, where Sky and Channel 4 share live rights to F1.

It seems more and more organisations are embracing streaming in the hope of carving off a slice of Netflix's pie.
