How to stream FOX with your cable subscription
The easiest and cheapest option for streaming FOX is the company’s own app, FOX Now. By logging into the app from your favorite device, you can access all of FOX’s live channels.
The big drawback here is that FOX Now is only available to cable subscribers. Maybe you’re away from home or you’re fighting over the TV or you just want to watch something on your phone. If that’s the case, download the app and log in using your cable information when prompted.

How to stream FOX if you don’t have cable
The only way to access these channels without a cable subscription is to sign up for a live TV streaming service.
There are plenty to choose from. DirecTV Stream, FuboTV, Hulu Plus Live TV, Sling TV, or YouTube TV will all give you access to various FOX channels, including entertainment, news, and sports.
These services effectively bridge the gap between streaming and traditional cable and broadcast. You get access to various cable channels through whichever app you choose, allowing you to watch TV live from your computer, smart TV, or another device of your choice. You can read more about them in our live TV streaming guide.
Philo TV and Frndly TV are the two big exceptions among these. Neither of these live TV streaming services offers access to FOX.
Can I stream FOX on Tubi?
Free streaming service Tubi belongs to the FOX Corporation, so in a sense, you’re streaming FOX when you stream anything on Tubi.
That is probably not the information you’re looking for though.
While Tubi has live channels, including news, these are original channels. That means that while some of them may contain FOX content, they are not the live FOX channels you would get from the broadcast network or its streaming affiliates.
In that sense, no, you cannot watch FOX on Tubi.
