After 15 years of airing Fox News in the U.K., the right-wing station is no longer available in the U.K. 21st Century Fox has decided to drop the channel from the Sky satellite.

In a statement, Fox explained that their decision to drop the channel was because of the low viewership and it was not a money maker.

The statement reads, “21CF has decided to cease providing a feed of Fox News Channel in the U.K. Fox News is focused on the U.S. market and designed for a U.S. audience and, accordingly, it averages only a few thousand viewers across the day in the U.K.  We have concluded that it is not in our commercial interest to continue providing Fox News in the U.K.”


Fans of Fox News in the U.K. will no longer be able to go on the internet to watch the channel because it will not be streamed online either.

On Tuesday, Sky stopped broadcasting Fox News from 4 pm.

According to a study done by Business Insider, it revealed that people who watch Fox News are less informed than someone who watches no news at all.
