NOW is a 24-hour news network operated by WTNY Corporation. It launched on November 9, 1986 as a plan to compete against larger cable news networks like CNN or MSNBC. From September 2005, NOW is America's #1 News Channel. In 1992, the channel expanded with international channels for Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia, and later in native-lanugages. The channel airs no talk shows or documentaries. Instead it shows updated 30-minute newscasts that air live 24-hours a day. The channel is famous for it's NOW Instaticker which is shown around the clock, even during commericals. NOW Instaticker keeps viewers updated on international stock market prices (Stocks, indices, currencies and commodities), news headlines, sports scores and weather forecasts.

On January 22nd 2010, the channel is offered as a digital subchannel for local stations. With that, Local Edition which includes Local News, Weather and Traffic is shown at 25 and 55 past the hour (local stations/local cable) while National feed shown on DirecTV and Dish Network gets the New York opt-out of Local Edition. On June 14th 2017, NOW's news wheel was updated to include national weather forecasts at :23 and :53 past the hour presented by TNT News meteorologists. On July 1st 2017, the channel updated it's logo and Instaticker along with the start of the Singaporian version of the channel called NOW Singapore.

The channel is streamed live at wtny.com and on YouTube.
