How to Watch FOX Live Without Cable in 2024

Without FOX, there would be no The O.C., no Futurama, American Idol, Malcolm in the Middle, Arrested Development, The X-Files, or The Simpsons. Much of what makes TV what it is today wouldn't be there. 

The good news is that you don't need a hefty cable bill to watch these series and all the new ones that FOX has to offer. You can subscribe to Netflix-style cord-cutting services that allow you to watch the channel live for much less than the price of cable and without any of its hassles. 

One of the most popular cord-cutting services, Sling TV, only offers FOX in some markets. Whether or not FOX is on Sling depends on the ownership of the station in each area. To watch FOX with Sling, the best way is to get an antenna, which integrates well with the app. 

You can watch FOX without cable on DirecTV Stream, Fubo TV, Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, DirecTV Stream Ultimate, Fubo TV Elite, Tubi, or Now TV.

Below, we count down the best ways to watch FOX that cord-cutters use.

Our top five ways to watch FOX:
DirecTV Stream $79.99 Watch
Fubo $79.99 Watch
Hulu with Live TV $75.99 Watch
YouTube TV $72.99 Watch
DirecTV Stream Ultimate $94.99 Watch

DirecTV Stream differentiates itself from other cable-streaming hybrids like Hulu + Live and Sling in two key ways: it carries more regional sports networks than any other streaming service, and it has unlimited hours of Cloud DVR storage. You also have the choice to receive the DirecTV Stream device (called Gemini Air), or continue using your own.
