Scripps relaunches Newsy to 90% of the U.S.
Newsy will provide the same viewing experience and programming to viewers over-the-air, online and on streaming services.
Scripps' around-the-clock Newsy channel launched Monday to 90% of U.S. television homes as an over-the-air channel, online and on most popular streaming services.
Newsy, broadcast here as WCPO-TV's digital Channel 9.6, was removed from Spectrum, Cincinnati Bell's Fioptics and all pay TV platforms in June so it could be re-launched this month as a free over-the-air, online and streaming network to target the increasing number of viewers who have cut the cable TV cord.
The Cincinnati-based media company announced in June that Newsy will be carried by Scripps' ION stations and select Scripps local television stations, and those of other station groups.
