Fox is becoming the first broadcast network to simulcast its primetime programming, and it’ll be done solely through the network’s own platforms (fox.com and FOX NOW) — viewable on iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Apple TV and Google Chromecast, according to a press release from the company. This will bring a live streaming option to an estimated 98 million homes, starting tonight at 8 pm.

Of course, this is network television, so tonight your first dose of this new way of viewing will come in the form of… So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation. And going forth, Wayward Pines, Master Chef, Hotel Hell and Home Free will all likewise be included in the simulcast mix — sport programming, however, will not. Pity.
