Cable and satellite aren't cheap, but they do offer some great content. Their absurd prices would almost be understandable if they were offering us content we couldn't get anywhere else. But guess what: they're not! Network TV channels are available through other streaming services, and in the case of major networks like Fox, your options also include free over-the-air TV. Not only is it possible to watch Fox without cable, it's actually easy to do so. This guide will show you how.

How to Watch Fox Online and Over the Air Without Cable

There are two major ways to watch Fox without cable. One is free over-the-air TV, which we'll cover in its own section below. The other is to use a skinny bundle. Our list includes a handful of these services, so in the interest of not repeating ourselves, let's get this out of the way now: what the heck is a skinny bundle?

A skinny bundle is a live TV service, sort of like cable or satellite. But there are a few very important differences. For one, skinny bundles stream over the internet, meaning that skinny bundle providers don't need their own cable infrastructure and therefore don't end up sitting atop regional monopolies. For another, skinny bundles tend to be, well, “skinny.” Though some offer larger packages and add-ons, all of them offer some type of slimmed-down package that pares your massive cable bundle down to the essentials. The result of these two differences is that skinny bundles tend to be a whole lot more affordable than their legacy counterparts.

Each of the skinny bundles below includes a Fox livestream, although some carry it in more markets than others. Keep that in mind as you scroll down through the list of live TV streaming services that offer Fox in at least a few television markets.

    Good evening. My wife and I live in Las Vegas. We are currently with Cox Cable, having been a customer for over 20 years. We have pared down our viewing options to next to nothing and yet we are still subjected to price hikes to the point where we are paying an exorbitant sum for hardly any English speaking channels. We looked into local antenna companies and queried the pricing and programming supplied by Mr. Antenna. We were informed that they do not provide Fox News in their ‘bundle’ which is our main source of TV viewing.
    Do you know if there is a company in the Las Vegas area who can provide us with free OTA
    broadcasts INCLUDING Fox News?
    Thank you.

    Martin Cox.

      Thanks for reading, Martin! Unfortunately, Fox News is not an OTA channel. You can only get Fox News through a pay TV provider. There are some pretty affordable options, though! Here’s an article that might help: https://cordcutting.com/how-to-watch/fox-news/
