Nexstar Media Group said Wednesday it entered into a long-term affiliation agreement with FOX Broadcasting, a part of 21st Century Fox (FOX), that covers Nextstar Media’s 17 full-power and 2 low-power owned or operated stations through 2019. No terms disclosed. In addition, Nextstar said it reached an “over-the-top” master agreement with FOX, as well as specific agreements to launch on all the new internet-delivered programming services already distributing FOX programming.
Nextstar also said FOX Broadcasting extended the affiliation and over-the-top agreements to 12 other television stations that Nextstar operates. Nextstar said FOX programming, including NFL, MBA, NASCAR sports, and such dramas as X-Files, is a poplar draw for viewers and advertisers.
