Los Angeles, CA - August 21, 2006 -Fox Digital Media today announced the launch of "FOX on Demand" on the MyFOX Local websites of nine (9) local FOX owned and operated stations. This historic offering marks the first time local stations will stream network programming on their local websites.

Viewers in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Dallas, Washington, Tampa Bay, Orlando, Birmingham and Greensboro now have the ability to tune in to FOX shows anytime on their local station's MyFOX websites.
