When you look at Dave, do you think "World Class Rapper?" Not likely. This isn't going to stop, or even slow down Dave from trying to convince the world he's the best man to hold the mic since Notorious B.I.G.
This new half-hour comedy is helmed by real-life rapper and comedian Dave Burd, known to his fans as Lil Dicky. Will Dave climb to rap stardom, or like many neurotic men in their late twenties, slip into Soundcloud obscurity?
Here's everything you need to know to stream Dave.

What the critics are saying
- "While remaining properly, deeply funny throughout - Dave does feel like we are past the peak of manbaby comedy." Lucy Mangan, The Guardian
- "Dave is very funny. That’s not the most astute critical assessment, I know. But it’s what you probably most want to know. It’s also deeper than it has any business being, even if it never convincingly answers the question of whether this is a story that needed to be told in the first place." -Kevin Fallon, The Daily Beast
How to stream Dave
FXX is available on a handful of the major live TV streaming services. When trying to decide which one is best for you, you'll want to weigh the cost, the other channels you'll receive, and the compatible devices for streaming.
Dave on Hulu with Live TV
Hulu Live TV is a great way to stream live TV, as it comes with access to Hulu’s massive library of on-demand content. You’ll be able to choose from movies, shows, and Hulu's original programming, and keep up with what's new each month. Hulu plans even include a bundle option where you can access Disney+ and ESPN+ along with Hulu.
Hulu Live TV sets you up with local channels and has a broad spectrum of entertainment and sports channels to review, including the full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, HGTV, and even deep cuts like National Geographic and Syfy, and of course, FX, where you can stream It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and What We Do In the Shadows, and of course, Dave.

Dave on Sling TV
If you're looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. There's also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. You'll get more Sling TV channels by choosing Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like FS1 and NBCSN and cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package. To gain access to Dave, you’ll either need Sling Blue or Sling Orange + Blue. Sling also has a number of add-ons, including robust international packages organized by languages all over the globe.
|Orange + Blue||$50|
Dave on FuboTV
FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but it's evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. Depending on the package, you can access as many as 181 FuboTV channels. If you're looking to be entertained, Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 are options even at Fubo's most basic tier. The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. The FuboTV cost starts at $54.99 a month, and with Disney Media favorites like ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel coming on board in 2020, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.
To stream Dave, you'll want to dock in at the FuboTV Standard level.
|Family with Showtime||$74.99 ($69.99 for first 3 mos.)|
Dave on Vidgo
Vidgo offers a package for under $40 a month that pulls together more than 60 English-language channels into its National English Package. Vidgo channels include ABC, Fox, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN Deportes), and it's one of the few streaming services that carries BeIN Sports. But it's like Fubo in that, even though it started out for streaming sports, it carries a lot more now. You might be surprised to know that Vidgo's an option to stream Dave—and then you chat about it online via Vidgo's Social TV platform.
Dave on AT&T TV Now
If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now's biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month. If you're looking for Dave, get in at the AT&T TV Now Plus tier to stream it.
Dave on YouTube TV
The YouTube TV channel list includes local channels, sports options including ESPN, ESPN2, FS1, FS2, and NBA TV, and plenty to keep kids (and kids at heart) occupied, including Disney Channel and its companion channels, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network—all in one easy-to-access package. It even comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. YouTube add-ons include HBO Max, Showtime, and Starz. YouTube TV packages have some advantages over their competitors, including a generous DVR and multiple screens package.
