It’s no secret that TV subscriptions with normal cable providers have gotten out of this world expensive. Not only is your monthly bill on the pricey side of things, but these cable companies make it near impossible to exit your contract without incurring outlandish fees. A few years back, I distinctly remember cancelling a contract because we could never get a decent enough signal to watch our favorite TV shows. Upon cancelling, this local company ended up charging me around $400 to end the contract. Situations like this are fairly common from cable and satellite TV providers, and it’s something you never want to run into.
That’s why “cord cutting” has become so popular. However, some people are nervous about it, not being able to watch their favorite channels. But, that’s nothing to worry about, as streaming providers are competing heavily against the big TV providers, offering much of the same of what they offer. Just one of those channels is Fox News.
Follow along below, and we’ll show you how you can watch Fox News live without any sort of cable or TV subscription.
Streaming devices are just one way to watch live channels like Fox News. In fact, there are tons out there that support the Fox News channel, including the Amazon Fire TV Stick (and most other Fire TV streaming devices), the Roku and even the Apple TV. They all support the Fox News channel, allowing you to watch live TV on them.
Of course, if you’d rather sign-up for a cord cutting service, many of these devices have apps that you can use to watch Fox News live. For example, if you’d rather watch Fox News live through the Hulu app, it’s as simple as downloading the app onto your Fire TV or Roku, logging in, and then finding the channel.
We’ll list all the streaming services that support Fox News below, but be rest assured, if you’re not using a phone or tablet to watch, the apps for these streaming services can all be downloaded on the devices we just mentioned.
If you haven’t heard yet, Hulu now offers Hulu with Live TV. You can watch Live TV and stream on-demand with this additional service/expansion from Hulu. And, of course, one of the many channels it offers is Fox News.
Keep in mind that Hulu with Live TV is a little pricier than regular Hulu. You’re looking at spending around $40 a month on it, but this does come with regular Hulu streaming bundled in the package. If you’re not sure about Hulu with Live TV, there is a free trial you can check out before signing up to make sure you enjoy the interface and are able to watch all of your favorite channels.
And like we already said, you can download the Hulu app to watch live TV on the Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, and most other devices.

DirecTV Now is another place you can watch live Fox News content. DirecTV Now is a streaming serviced that came about after AT&T bought the company, so there are chances that if you have an AT&T phone service, you’ll be able to get added discounts if you sign up for DirecTV Now. You’ll have to consult your own account to find out.
Watching Fox News on DirecTV Now is particular nice because Fox News is apart of the streaming service’s “Live a Little” package. This is their cheapest package, meaning you’re only going to be paying around $35 a month for a little over 60 channels, with Fox News being one of those.

YouTube TV is another place you can watch Fox News’ live content. It’ll set you back $35 a month, but you’ll get Fox News as well as a bevy of other channels. The only downside is that YouTube TV is available on a limited amount of devices — you won’t be able to watch it on the Roku or Fire TV.
If you want YouTube TV, you’ll need the Google Chromecast, a supported Android TV, an Xbox One or a support Samsung or LG Smart TV to get the YouTube TV app. Check it out for yourself below.

Last up on our list is the PlayStation Vue. You’ll be able to watch all your Fox News content here, but do keep in mind that it will require a subscription to PlayStation Vue. For that, you’ll need to sign-up for their Access package, which costs $40 per month. A 5-day free trial is available for those that aren’t sure about this one.
Keep in mind that a PlayStation Vue subscription doesn’t require owning a PlayStation 4 console — you’re able to watch on your phone, your Roku, the Amazon Fire TV, the Apple TV and plenty of other devices. Get started below.

As you can see, you can easily watch Fox News without a cable subscription. Any one of the services above will work phenomenally for you, although we recommend shying away from YouTube TV due to the limited amount of devices it’s available on.
