No network logo is more recognized than the spotlights over the 20th Century Fox logo. From The Simpsons to Empire to Gotham Fox always seems to be streaming some of the most interesting content on television. As one of the only true “free” networks on the air along with the likes of NBC, CBS and ABC Fox is a staple of the american family home and has kept up with the times by offering several options to watch their content online.
Here are several ways to stream Fox online, for free. Choose the one that’s best for you and your entertainment setup.
WATCH FOX LIVE WITHOUT CABLE WITH DIRECTV NOW
DIRECTV NOW’s service is a bit newer but has all the channels you’re probably looking for. In certain markets you can get access to FOX, alongside dozens of other channels, like ESPN, FX, AMC, and much more. You get a 7 day free trial so you can try it out before signing up. It’s a great option for those looking to stream their favorite shows online.
Watch Fox Online for Free with the Official App and Website
Fox Now is the official streaming app of the Fox network. It’s available for all types of phones and tablets (well, most types!) and with that you’ll be able to watch any of Fox’s current programming. You won’t have access to any of their historical content like watching old episodes of The Simpsons online or anything but you can catch up on last night’s episode of Empire whenever you want.
You’ll have to sit through the same commercials you would on your regular TV but at least you’ll have streaming access to all of Fox’s content. The other cool thing about Fox Now is that it has behind the scenes extras and features beyond what you’ll get on cable. So in a way, Fox Now is a better platform than just watching it on cable. Plus you’ll be able to watch Fox online anywhere, anytime.
The Fox website also has full episodes for free. Check that out here.
Watch Fox Live Online with Sling TV
Another great option is a bit of a larger commitment but will get you Fox live. Sling TV is a new alternative to traditional cable that allows you to subscribe to several channels for a mere $20, including Fox if you choose the right package.

Shows Streaming on Fox
Are Fox Shows on Netflix or Hulu?
Most of Fox’s series are available the next day on Hulu to subscriber members. For about $10 a month for Hulu Premium you’ll get all of the latest Fox shows online. I’m not sure why you would choose this option when the Fox app is totally free.
Netflix has a bunch of Fox shows streaming on their platform but there are too many to list them all here. Family Guy and New Girl are both available on Netflix but with newer seasons reserved for Hulu and the official streaming app. You’ll just have to check Netflix for your favorite Fox show to watch online.
Download Full Episodes of Fox Programs Online
If the official Fox streaming app and Netflix and/or Hulu don’t get the job done for you there’s always the option to download complete episodes of Fox programs on your to favorite digital library. Amazon Instant Video, iTunes and Google Play are all great options for streaming series online. You’ll have to pay a few dollars per episode but at least you’ll have access whenever you want and the best part? No commercials.
Is there a Free Fox Live Stream?
There isn’t an official live stream application or website for Fox. But if you navigate to your local Fox station they may have one for you! It’s not a guarantee but several major fox outlets have live streams on their website. Here’s an example from Q13 Fox Seattle. This is the only way to stream Fox online. If you’re looking for NFL on Fox streaming you may be blacked out as the NFL blocks that sort of thing on many occasions.
