How to Watch Fox Sports Without Cable
These days more and more people are deciding to cut the cord. That’s a reasonable decision considering that most cable TVs are somewhat overpriced. On-demand streaming services allow us to binge-watch our favorite TV shows. But what about sports?
If you are not sure how to watch Fox Sports without cable, we’ve got you covered! There are plenty of options, and we’ll describe them so you can decide which one is the best for you.
Are There Any Free Options?
We’ll explore some options that allow you to watch Fox Sports for free. Unfortunately, most options last for a limited period.
You probably know that most streaming services offer a free-trial period. Hulu Live is one of the best options because its free trial lasts for a whole month! Other services usually provide a 7-day free trial period just to try it out and see whether it works for you.
Another option is to stream Fox Sports for free directly from its website. However, you’ll have to sign up with the credentials from Fubo TV, Hulu, or AT&T TV NOW. You could also use credentials from other TV providers, such as DirecTV.
If you aren’t a subscriber of any of the mentioned services, someone in your family probably is. You could ask them to give you their password and email.
What Streaming Services Carry Fox Sport?
Most streaming services offer a wide choice of sports channels. They know that if they didn’t do so, they’d turn off many passionate sports fans. You can find Fox Sports on the most major streaming services.
However, the best option is to use one of the following three services – Hulu Live, Fubo TV, and AT&T TV NOW – as they have specials agreements with Fox Sports. It means you get instant access and some other benefits. We’ll now explore all three.
Hulu Live is an excellent option for people who want to combine streaming sports on Fox with movies and TV shows on demand. Hulu Live allows you to watch more than 60 TV channels, including Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2 as well as local Fox stations.
If you’re interested in a particular local channel, you can go to Hulu Live website and explore the “View all channels in your area” section. Just enter your ZIP code to get a list of channels available in your region.
Some of the best things about Hulu Live are its long free-trial period and that it allows you to record up to 50 hours of your favorite shows or, in this case, sports matches! Also, its huge on-demand library regularly updated so you can watch the latest movies if you ever get tired of the sports games.
Despite being a relatively new streaming service, Fubo TV quickly rose to prominence, especially among sports lovers. The service is famous for its great offer of sports channels; you can find almost any sport you want there. It includes four Fox channels: Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, Fox Soccer Plus, and Fox Desportes.
Fubo TV offers various packages, mostly based on the number of hours you can record. If you’re interested in Fox Sports 1, you can find it in Fubo’s Standard package. It costs $54.99 a month and has 92 channels and 30 hours of DVR space.
Some of the bigger packages, such as Family or Entertainment, give you up to 500 hours of DVR space! Of course, even if you subscribe to a smaller package and then change your mind, you can always upgrade. There’s a free 7-day trial for every package, so you can try and see what works the best for you.
AT&T TV NOW
When you go to AT&T TV NOW homepage, you’ll see their two most popular packages, Plus and Max. Good thing is that they both come with a 7-day free trial. However, if you keep browsing, you’ll see that you can customize each of them with channels you like to watch.
If you want only Fox Sports 1, you can purchase the $65 monthly package. However, if you’re going to watch both Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2, you’ll have to opt for the Max package that costs $85 a month. It is a good option only if you or someone in your family loves HBO, as many HBO channels are included in each package.
Bear in mind that AT&T TV NOW may not be the best option for you if you like to record content and watch it later in your spare time. This streaming service has one of the most restrictive recording policies on the market. You can record up to 20 hours of content, but you have to watch it in the next 30 days before it gets removed from your cloud.
Sling TV is another good option to watch Fox Sports. For only $30 a month, you’ll get access to both Fox Sports 1 and FOX Sports 2, as well as many other great channels.
The two most popular packages are Blue and Orange, and each has around 50 channels. The Blue package contains various Fox channels, sports channels included.
One of the main differences between the two packages is kids’ channels bundles, so before making the decision, you may have to ask your children whether they prefer Disney or Bravo Kids. Of course, if you wish to upgrade, you can purchase a Premium package anytime. It’s a combination of the Blue and Orange plans, and you can get it for $45 a month.
If you have an Amazon Firestick TV, go to your Amazon app store and download the Fox Sports app. All of the mentioned services are compatible with Firestick, so just enter your credentials, and you’re ready to go. The app will not only allow you to stream live content, but you’ll also be able to browse through a vast on-demand library and create a personalized watching list.
Roku is compatible with all the streaming services we’ve mentioned. All you have to do is simply download the Fox Sports app ( also called channels) and enjoy watching your favorite sports and TV shows.
If you have Apple TV, go to the App Store and download the Fox Sports app. You’ll be able to stream live content to your TV, but that’s not all! You can personalize your profile and set alerts to remind you about the content you don’t want to miss.
PC, MAC, and Chromebook
If you want to watch Fox Sports on a PC, Mac, or Chromebook, head over to Fox Sports website. If you’re subscribed to one of the services we’ve mentioned, you’ll have instant access. Enter your credentials, and you’re ready to stream your favorite content on any device you want.
