How to Watch FOX Live Stream Online without Cable

fox live stream

FOX Broadcasting entered the arena in the mid-80s as direct competition to the other major broadcast networks. When, in 1989, a little show called The Simpsons premiered, it created a dynasty that has yet to be toppled.

FOX is now home to many can’t-miss shows including:

  • Lucifer
  • Empire
  • Scream Queens
  • Gotham
  • New Girl

And so many more we can’t take up all the space in this overview to cover them all. Plus, FOX is home to a ton of great live sports, including NFL (home of Super Bowl 51 live stream), college football, NASCAR (Daytona 500 and other big races), and more.

So you might be worried about how to watch the FOX live stream if you don’t have access to cable. There are a few options for watching FOX without cable, so let’s take a closer look.


Watch the FOX Live Stream on Sling TV

While broadcast networks are difficult to watch on streaming services, it’s not impossible. Sling TV may be one of the best choices. The FOX live stream is available in select markets across the U.S. including:

  • Atlanta GA
  • Austin TX
  • Charlotte NC
  • Chicago IL
  • Dallas TX
  • Detroit MI
  • Gainesville FL
  • Houston TX
  • Los Angeles CA
  • Minneapolis MN
  • New York NY
  • Orlando FL
  • Philadelphia PA
  • Phoenix AZ
  • San Francisco CA
  • Tampa F
  • Washington D.C.

While that isn’t a comprehensive list, people in those markets will be able to stream FOX live through Sling TV. That means fans can watch all of FOX’s programming including NFL Football on Sundays and the World Series. If you’re not in these areas, you won’t be able to watch live local TV or sporting events, but you will still be able to watch the shows on demand.

Sling TV is pretty affordable. The Sling Blue package, which includes FOX streaming, is only $25 per month. It can be streamed on pretty much any device, including your computer or smart phone. It works with most of the streaming players on the market like Chromecast, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, and Roku. They sometimes have deals on streaming players from Apple TV and Roku, so check them out to learn more. You can start with a free 7 day trial.

The major competition for live streaming television is PlayStation Vue. It is very similar to Sling TV, with a few differences. Live, local networks are only available in 7 U.S. cities, so you’ll need to check it out to see if you can watch FOX streaming live in your area.

Vue is more expensive overall. It starts at $40 per month in markets with live streaming local channels. It is only available on a handful of devices. And, in spite of having a mobile app for iPhone and iPad, streaming while away from your home network is extremely limited.

Here is our review of Vue.


Watch FOX Online with Hulu, Netflix, and More

If the FOX live stream isn’t your primary concern, you can also watch many of the shows on the streaming on demand services like Hulu and Netflix.

With Hulu, you can watch many of FOX’s flagship shows usually a day or two after it airs. Netflix offers complete seasons usually about a year after the show originally aired on FOX. You will have to search for your favorite shows to know what’s possible.


Watch FOX Without Cable on an Antenna

Lastly, if you want to cut the cord, one of the most affordable options to keep up with broadcast networks is an antenna. They’ve come a long way since rabbit ears and digital antennas are reliable and affordable. If you get reception for FOX in your broadcast area, you can watch their live feed right on your TV.
