How to Watch FS1 Online Without Cable

Your path to FS1 is pretty simple: you're going to want to turn to a skinny bundle, one of those stripped-down cable-like streaming packages that offers streaming network channels for less than the cable giants charge. Skinny bundles come in all shapes and sizes these days, but the fact that they're delivered via the internet and generally offer at least one subscription option that's slimmer than a typical cable package helps them offer lower-priced options than their legacy counterparts.

Below, you'll find all of the trusted skinny bundles that offer FS1. As of this writing, all of them also offer live streams of Fox's flagship channel, though only in select markets – so if you're after NFL action and other sports that make their way onto the main FOX channel, you'll want to use a free trial to check your local station's availability. Most of these skinny bundles also offer FS2, but we'll cover that on a case-by-case basis below.

Stream FS1 for free with Hulu

Free Trial

Hulu was a streaming video on demand (SVOD) giant long before they dipped their toe into the skinny bundle waters, but their effort is a worthy one. Hulu + Live TV's channel selection includes many of your favorite live TV networks. Among those channels? You guessed it: FS1. You'll also find FS2 in Hulu + Live TV's selection. Hulu + Live TV also offers live streams of Fox's flagship channel, the eponymous Fox, in select markets. For more information, read our review of Hulu + Live TV.

Stream FS1 for free with fuboTV

Free Trial

fuboTV began life as a soccer streaming service, but it has long since moved on by expanding its channel lineup to compete with more general-interest skinny bundles. There's still a sports focus here, though, which is good news for fans of networks like FS1 and FS2 — both of which are available through fuboTV. You can read our full review of fuboTV to learn more, or you can check it out for yourself by clicking the link to the free trial above.

Stream FS1 with Sling TV

Try It

Sling TV has a bit of a different vibe to it thanks to its a la carte subscription model. Instead of choosing between smaller and larger bundles, Sling TV asks you to choose between two that are merely different (you can also choose to subscribe to both). Then it lets you tack on smaller add-on packages grouped by genre. This allows subscribers to build a more customized skinny bundle experience. To get FS1 — as well as FS2 and Fox — just build your own bundle! Read our Sling TV review to learn more.


AT&T TV Now offers lots of great channels in its multiple bundles, and FS1 is among the networks on offer. Just track down a bundle that includes FS1 and sign up — AT&T TV Now even offers a free trial on some bundles (new subscribers only).

YouTube TV

Google's skinny bundle option is another great way to watch FS1 online. The service includes both FS1 and FS2, plus lots of other channels and access to YouTube originals. If you want to get your hands on some free television, you should check out the free trial. For more information, be sure to read our YouTube TV review.

Can I Watch FS1 on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, or Chromecast?

Absolutely! FS1 is available on the skinny bundles above, and each of the major skinny bundle services offers support for most of the major streaming devices.

Specifically, Roku users are looking at Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV, each of which has an app for Roku devices.

Fire TV users can choose between Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, and YouTube TV.

Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, and YouTube TV each have apps for Apple TV, too.

Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, and YouTube TV will work great with our Chromecast devices as well.

As for Android TV devices like the Nvidia Shield TV: Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV are your options there.

Mobile viewing is no problem thanks to apps from Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, and YouTube TV for both Android and iOS mobile devices.

Watching on a desktop or laptop is easy, too, thanks to desktop and/or in-browser apps from Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, and YouTube TV.

Some, but not all, of the services above are available on gaming systems: only Hulu + Live TV is available on the PlayStation 4 as of this writing, but Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV are available for Xbox One.

In short, you can take your pick of these services if you own a streaming device from a major manufacturer — and you'll also gain plenty of ways to watch on devices besides your streaming box and TV, including your smartphone, tablet, computers, and perhaps even your gaming systems.

    Sling Orange + Sling Blue + Sports Extra is $50/month not $45. Sports Extra is $5/month for Sling Orange only but is $10/month for Blue or Orange + Blue. Different sports channels included in the $5 vs $10 extra packages.

    I just added sling blue to get fs1 to watch certain games, and then I find out i can’t access those games– they are not available in my area. wish I had known that before I added it! When I unsubscribed (the same day), it will take a month to process (while it takes like 10 seconds to activate it). now now I am paying for nothing. just wanted to warn others.

    Sling did away with FS1, FS2, BTN and other stations without replacement channels for the same price. Do not get sling if you want to watch sports.

    Hey I just heard that Playstation VUE is closing shop on January 2020.

    So what’s my alternative option? Per the wife we need ESPN, BTN, FS1 and BBC and the wild card is Halmark channel. Youtube has all but Hallmark , Fubu has all but NO ESPN
    Philo has all but NO sports channels, but is the cheapest. I was thinking of going that route, but buying the ESPN app subscription and still be money ahead. Only issue is NO FS1 or BTN, so my question is, is there a way to get just the FS1 and BTN app or I’m locked into one of the other options? Or can one just get Hallmark as a stand alone app? or does that need a major provider?
    Many thanks

      Hi Clark, thanks for reading! The Hallmark service Hallmark Movies Now is your best bet for standalone Hallmark Channel content. Standalone sports is a tougher thing to find, though. Depending on what sports you like most, you may be able to get by with free over-the-air TV, or you might want to turn to a skinny bundle that has ESPN and FS1. Hope that helps!
