Father-son relationships can be complicated, especially when your dad is a convicted serial killer. Prodigal Son gives new meaning to the phrase “daddy issues.”

Disgraced FBI profiler Malcom Bright now works for the NYPD. As a child, he was responsible for the eventual capture of his father Martin Whitly, a 23-count serial killer known to most as “The Surgeon.” His bloodline allows Bright to see crimes from the killer’s point of view. This talent however, is a double-edged sword. What if it’s simply a precursor to full-blown sociopathy?

When a copycat killer appears using Whitly’s methods, Bright must set aside his past to stop another massacre from happening. Every episode, Bright must use his unique talents to take down new villains, while battling his own serious, inherited inner demons.

Here’s everything you need to stream Prodigal Son.

Prodigal Son Reviews

What the critics are saying:

  • “Performances carry the day, here: Payne is edgy and hopped-up as a young man in a perpetual state of ultra-anxiety. … Sheen cleverly carries off a character with all the urbane wit of Hannibal Lecter, but evil buried further under the surface. … The show, though, is completely in control, deploying Sheen carefully, well, and never too much. It’s a program that provides a creepy jolt while never reveling in darkness for its sake.” -Daniel D’Addario, Variety

How to stream Prodigal Son

Fox is available on a few 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.

Prodigal Son on Hulu with Live TV

Hulu Live TV is one of the most popular ways to stream live TV, perhaps because you gain access to a massive library of on-demand content including classic and current TV shows, movies, not to mention Hulu’s original programming. As far as live-streaming goes, you’ll have a ton of local, entertainment, and sports channels to flip through, including HGTV, a full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, and even deep cuts like Nat Geographic and Syfy.

Prodigal Son on FuboTV

FuboTV was built from the ground up with sports fans in mind. There are different channel packages available whether you’re looking for basketball, soccer, golf, or even outdoor sports like rock climbing. In addition to niche channels, you’ll gain access to all the great cable channels including Fox, Viceland, Bravo, TBS, and IFC.

Prodigal Son on Sling TV

For a more à la carte service, look to Sling TV. It offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. If you grab them both (Sling Orange + Blue) you can save $10 per month. Sling Blue offers more bang for your buck with over 40 channels, including sports necessities like FS1, NBCSN, and NFL Network. You’ll also gain access to the usual cable mainstays like Food Network, Discovery, Cartoon Network, SYFY, and FXX. Whichever package you choose, you can save $10 on your first month. Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.

How to use AirTV with Sling

AirTV solves one of the Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge those local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “It’s practically magic.”

The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.

But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—gives Sling users the ability to access all local channels to add to whichever Sling package is the best fit for them.

Prodigal Son 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, including ABC, Fox, the Disney family of channels, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN Deportes), FS1, FS2, Fox Deportes and BeIN Sports. It offers an array of entertainment favorites, including A&E, HGTV, History, Lifetime, and a full range of Nickelodeon channels, including TeenNick and NickToons.

College sports fans will love it, too: The ACCN, Big Ten Network, the Longhorn Network, and Pac-12 Network are all on the Core package, and for $10 more, the Plus package offers all six market-specific Pac-12 Networks.

Prodigal Son on AT&T TV Now

There’s a good chance that you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, so using the network to stream Fox only makes sense. The second you sign up, you’ll gain instant access to 45+ channels, including local channels and even free HBO in the Plus and Max channel suites. Plus, it comes with CloudDVR, which lets you record up to 20 hours of TV per month. One account works on two devices, but you can add more devices for only $5.

Prodigal Son on YouTube TV

YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts, and each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR. You can’t beat the variety, either: There are sports channels like NBCSN, NBA TV, and four ESPN channels, while Disney, Disney XD, Disney Junior, and Cartoon Network will keep any kid (or kid at heart) busy for hours. It also comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. AMC, BBC America, and IFC are there too, so you won’t miss out on all that prestige TV. (You can find the full list of YouTube TV channels here.)
