The Hill, America’s premier source for political and policy news, has launched a streaming channel, marking its first foray into OTT (Over The Top). The Hill is part of Nexstar Digital, the digital business of Nexstar Media Group, Inc., the largest local broadcaster in the U.S. with 200 owned or partner stations in 116 U.S. markets. The launch of The Hill TV builds upon The Hill’s success as an essential, agenda-setting read for lawmakers, policymakers and influential digital consumers from Capitol Hill to Main Street.

The Hill TV programming line-up includes:

• Signature shows including Rising, The Hill’s groundbreaking morning program;
• Extended exclusives and interviews with lawmakers, policy influencers, and business leaders about hot-button issues and pending legislation;
• Summits and policy roundtables from The Hill’s 70+ thought leadership events per year, convening expert voices on the biggest challenges facing our country;
• Thematic series such as Changing America, which uniquely explores timely topics including respect, sustainability, resilience, and well-being;
• Local political programs, including highlights from Sunday talk shows produced by Nexstar stations in top markets.

“The Hill’s objective is to bring free, trusted, and non-biased information about politics and policy to more Americans,” explained Jason Jedlinski, General Manager of The Hill. “In a time of increasing polarization and diminishing trust in media, we’re proud to provide a clear alternative for news and information to viewers, and a powerful opportunity to advertisers.”

The Hill TV recently debuted on global streaming platform Plex. Viewers can watch The Hill TV by downloading the Plex app here or watch now in a web browser here. With over 50,000 free titles, movies, live TV shows, sports and music available to stream in over 180 countries, Plex is the most comprehensive entertainment platform available today. Additional distribution partners will be announced in the coming months.

“Our mission is to have the best free-to-watch live TV channel lineup available today with content and brands that appeal to large and diverse audiences,” said Shawn Eldridge, Vice President, Strategic Alliances and Content at Plex. “By adding a partner like Nexstar Digital with The Hill TV live channel, and its unmatched reputation for delivering premium unbiased news and content, we’re one step closer to achieving our goal.”

Nexstar Digital (nexstardigital.com) operates 125 websites and 239 mobile apps and collectively its digital assets are a Top 10 U.S. digital news and information property. The Hill TV is the centerpiece of Nexstar Digital’s political news portfolio and delivers highly engaged and valuable OTT viewers.
