Even if you don’t agree with Fox News Channel politics, there’s value in knowing how to watch a Fox News live stream. 

To know both sides of an issue, it’s helpful to learn how it’s being framed on the right-leaning network, especially given its current importance to the Trump administration and to the Republican Party. After all, President Trump spends some of his “executive time” watching Fox News.

Plus, as the Democratic nomination process heats up, it’ll be fascinating to see what right-leaning voices make of it—especially with Bernie Sanders jumping out to early frontrunner status. (Of course, while William Weld does remain a Republican primary challenger to President Trump, he’s only getting marginal vote totals.  

If you really want to know what’s happening, and not just read the talking points after the fact on Trump’s Twitter account, here’s how to watch Fox News online.



How to live stream Fox News for Democratic primary results

Know that in the thick of primary results times, in the 8pm ET and 9pm ET, Fox is into its dynamic duo of evening programming. Tucker Carlson Tonight typically airs at 8pm ET and Hannity airs at 9pm ET. Super Tuesday will certainly grab Fox’s attention, though, so that might be a good night to at least peek in and see what their analysts are saying.

Fox News live stream: How to watch online

Six streaming services, including the relatively-new-on-the-block Vidgo, carries Fox News Channel as part of their packages. Here’s more info on how to get started, how much each streaming service costs, and what channels each service features. (We also included info on Fox News Go.) 

1) FuboTV

  • FuboTV devices: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, iOS and Android devices
  • Local channels: ABC, Fox, NBC, CBS, the CW (in some markets) (check local availability here)

FuboTV is a solid TV streaming service option, whether your tastes run to entertainment, sports, or news. While Fubo started by targeting sports fans—and soccer fans in particular—it’s since branched out to be one of the more robust streaming options, and it’s particularly solid for news junkies.

If you can’t watch a program live, FuboTV offers a three-day replay option and 30 hours of cloud DVR. (Check out the complete FuboTV channels list.)

FuboTV also has bilingual families in mind; each subscription comes with UniMás, Galavisión, NBC Universo, beIN SPORTS, Univision, and Fox Deportes. An extra $7.99 per month will bring you Latino Plus, which includes CNN en Español and TyC Sports among its offerings.

2) Hulu with Live TV

3) Sling TV

Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $30 per month. Sling Blue is what you want if you want news, in addition to including local channels, Sling Blue brings CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC as part of its regular slate of channels, with Fox Business Channel available for those who get the Sling Blue News Extra add-on.

If you’re Team “Why Not Both,” Sling Orange + Blue combines the two for just $45 per month.

Other features include a Free Cloud DVR tier for all subscribers (allowing 10 hours of recording a month), the ability to record all live linear channels, and no VOD preemption on any channels. New subscribers get $10 off the first month.

Spanish-speaking viewers have quite a few options. For bilingual families, you might consider the Español: Best of Spanish TV package for either Sling Orange or Sling Blue. Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial. Sling TV Latino is another Spanish-language package for $10 per month, including NBC Universo, History en Español, and four beIN SPORTS channels. (And choosing Best of Spanish + Sling Orange for $35 per month gives you access to ESPN Deportes.) For more information, check out our guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.

If you need to record any shows to watch later, it comes with CloudDVR for up to 20 hours of TV recording per month. One account works on two devices, but you can add more devices for only $5.

5) Vidgo

It offers an array of entertainment favorites, including A&E, HGTV, History, Lifetime, and a full range of Nickelodeon channels, including TeenNick and NickToons.

Vidgo started out with a focus on programming en Español, carrying channels from throughout the Americas and even Spain in two skinny packages. Both the Latino Streaming Plan ($14.99 per month) and Latino Mas Streaming Plan ($24.99 per month) include BeIN’s main Spanish-language channel, TyC Sports, and Azteca America, while the higher tier adds DAZN.

However, it’s now a viable streaming service for English. While it doesn’t carry CNN or MSNBC, you might not miss those if you’re a Fox News Channel. 

Also, through its Vidgo app, it’s offering the option of Social TV, which allows Vidgo users to connect in real-time as they’re watching programming on their phones.

If you want to watch a Fox News live stream for free, there’s no easier way to do it than LiveNewsNow. Since 2015, and formerly known as LiveNewsOn, the site has offered a live stream of Fox News in surprisingly clear HD. It’s less clear why the site hasn’t been shut down by Fox News, or any of the other news sites it features (MSNBC, CNN, etc.), but we’re not complaining. If you’re watching on a desktop or your phone, LiveNewsOn makes it easy to go full screen or to “cast” to your TV using Google Chromecast.

2) Fox News

There are, however, news clips that are uploaded throughout the day and a couple of daily live web shows, most notably Fox & Friends: After the Show (weekdays at 9am ET) and Special Reports Online (Wednesdays at 7pm ET). There also all sorts of various clips uploaded daily under the tab Digital Originals, covering everything from country music to food trends.
