One word strikes terror in the hearts of anyone who is thinking about cutting the cord: sports. The fear of missing out on games and sports coverage is enough to send any fan into a tailspin of panic and paralysis. But it doesn’t have to be that way when you can still access the FS1 live stream and other sports networks online.
FS1, a FOX sports network, is host to baseball, including the MLB playoffs, soccer, and the Ultimate Fighting Championships. You can also watch commentary and programming like Skip And Shannon: Undisputed.
So how can you watch FS1 without cable? Here are our recommendations.
Watch FS1 Live Stream on Sling TV
Sling TV offers two basic packages for fans. The Blue package includes the local FOX affiliate and FOX regional sports networks in certain markets, but everyone has access to FS1 streaming. Sports fans are flocking to Sling TV as one of the best cable replacement tools to include sports channels and programming, which are difficult to access without cable.
The Sling TV package that includes the FS1 live stream starts at only $25 per month.
Sling TV is popular for a lot of great reasons. Not only is it one of the most affordable ways to watch FS1 without cable, and more, but it is also really accessible. It works across a large number of devices like Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, Amazon Fire TV, and your computer or smart phones. You can also stream FS1 on up to 3 devices at once. Or, you can stream other channels at the same time so if your family doesn’t want to watch FS1 online, they can watch their favorites shows in another room. There are also no location based restrictions, like with PlayStation Vue, so you can stream live TV from anywhere, any time. Sling TV often has promotions with Apple TV or Roku, so check out their site to see what you can get for free or discounted with your subscription.

What Other Networks are on Sling TV?
If you’re wondering what the value of Sling TV is, all you have to do is look at the other networks that are also available. Not only do you get sports, but you’ll have access to tons of hard to find networks that were previously only available with cable.
If you want to watch home improvement or food shows, you can with HGTV and The Food Network. Tune into the Travel Channel to see the world without leaving the comfort of your own home. For the fans of horror, sci-fi, and fantasy, you can watch favorite shows like The Walking Dead on AMC, Bates Motel on A&E, and Doctor Who and Orphan Black on BBC America. Laugh at comedies on TBS and Comedy Central. Get your news on CNN. All of your bases are covered with Sling TV.
And the Holy Grail for many cable cutters, Sling Blue gives you access to the NFL Network.
Plus, you can choose add-on packages, most running at only an additional $5 per month. Get things like sports, kids programming, world news, movies, comedy, and more.
DIRECTV NOW sounds like a familiar name, but they are shaking up the game. This is the newest streaming service available nationwide. The service is entirely online, and it isn’t necessary to have a satellite dish or even an existing contract with the company.
DIRECTV NOW will most likely be adding or changing features soon as they find their footing, but here is what you should know right now:
- Prices start at just $35 a month for over 60 channels, not including a selective on-demand. You should get a live stream of FS1 and a good selection of other sports.
- You’ll have many options for streaming, including Amazon Fire TV, and your PC. There aren’t any mobile restrictions at this time.
- Better yet? If you are an AT&T cell customer, using your data to stream shows from your phone won’t rack up your data plan!
- Unlike some other streaming services, DIRECTV NOW is easy to setup and navigate. The grid-guide interface is the most like traditional cable compared to other streaming services.
If you’re always on the hunt for a good deal, DIRECTV NOW (review) is providing some extra incentive to new customers at the time of their launch. However this may change is the near future, so you’ll want to act fast.
Once you have used up the free trial, if you decide you want to subscribe, simply pre-pay a few months of service and you will be sent a free Amazon Fire stick (one month) or Apple TV (three months).
Stream FS1 and More on PlayStation Vue
PlayStation Vue is your other option to watch FS1 online live. The services is similar, with a robust package of channels, but there are some differences. The price point is higher. It starts at $30 to $40 per month depending on your location. It also has more restrictions, including limited streaming away from home even with the mobile apps. But, for some fans it may be a great choice to watch the FS1 live stream and more popular pay TV networks.
