If you don’t already need a live FS1 stream, you probably will soon. FS1 will host some of MLB playoffs and no shortage of college football games, not to mention college basketball tournaments, Premier Boxing Champions, Major League Soccer matches, NASCAR races, and USGA Championships. In 2019, FS1 hosted the PBA Tour.

Since August 2013, when FS1 replaced the motorsports network Speed, Fox Sports has worked to establish itself as a viable competitor to the ESPN Network. FS1 is its flagship channel, offering a broad selection of live sports that covers everything from horse racing to mixed martial arts and the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

There’s also strong daily programming, anchored by the always-argumentative Skip and Shannon: Undisputed, the afternoon debate program Speak for Yourself, and Lock It In, which features the witty Rachel Bonnetta overseeing a sports gambling show (also featuring Cousin Sal, who found fame through Bill Simmons’ podcasts).

No matter what sport you’re into, here’s everything you need to know to find the right FS1 live stream for you to watch online.



FS1 live stream: 6 ways to watch online

All of the major live TV streaming services offer FS1 in some capacity. To help you decide which service is right for you to watch FS1 online, we’ve broken each one down below, focusing on the cost, compatible devices, other channels offered, and the game-changing feature that distinguishes the service from the rest of the competition.

Sling TV is your cheapest option for an FS1 live stream. Sling Blue, which costs $30 per month, includes the channel, along with NFL Network, FS2, TNT, Syfy, and more. It’s a solid introductory package, but if you want to also receive ESPN, you’ll want to upgrade to Sling Orange + Blue for $45 per month. Either way, you’ll get access to FX and AMC, and you’ll get plenty of sports action. You can easily upgrade to watch NFL RedZone as well. You can find a full list of Sling TV channels here.

Game-changing feature: Price. Sling TV offers the most news for the least amount of money.

1) FuboTV 

Fubo TV Fubo

FuboTV is a solid TV streaming service option, whether your tastes run to entertainment (AMC, Syfy, FX), news (MSNBC, CNN), or sports (NBA TV, NFL Network).

If you’re a sports fan, however, it will appear tailor-made for you, with FS1, and FS2 for an array of sports, TNT for Champions League soccer and NCAA basketball tournament action, and NBCSN for Premier League action all on tap. If you can’t watch a match live, FuboTV offers a three-day replay for each match 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.

FuboTV has one clear advantage over the competition: It’s the only live TV streaming service to offer FS1 in 4K. The channel is still in beta, but it bodes well for the future of FuboTV, a sports-centric streaming service. A basic FuboTV package also comes with Fox Sports, FS2, Big Ten Network, NFL Network, Pac-12 Network, and more, so you’ll pretty much always be able to find a game to watch. FuboTV’s one disadvantage? No ESPNHere’s a comprehensive rundown of the FuboTV channel lineup and available add-ons. 

Game-changing feature: Three-day replay for games and 30 hours of cloud DVR.

2) Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with Live TV adds roughly 40 channels (depending on the availability of some local channels in your area) of live TV to the Hulu you already know and love. And those channels hit all of the highlights: FS1 and FS2, ESPN and ESPN2, FX and FXM, and Disney and Disney Junior. You can find the full list of Hulu Live TV channels and add-ons here. 

Game-changing feature: Every subscription comes with free access to Hulu’s on-demand library, meaning you can catch up on all of your favorite shows. (Here are our picks for the best movies on Hulu, Hulu documentaries, anime, and the must-see Hulu originals.)

3) Sling TV

Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $30 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NBCSN (where many Premier League matches appear), NFL Network, and local channels. (Sling Blue customers in select markets get NBC, where some matches appear; see if yours has it here.) Sling Blue also brings Fox News Channel, MSNBC, and Headline News 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.

To add beIN SPORTS and ESPN Deportes and maximize your sports-watching potential, you’ll want to add either Sports Extra: Sling Orange ($5 per month) or Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month). (The latter also includes NFL RedZone.)

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 for 24/7 specialty channel LaLiga TV and beIN SPORTS Connect: Channels 4-9, which features matches from La Liga, Ligue 1 and Copa del Rey, among others. 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—of import to soccer fans—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.

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. 

If you just want your Vidgo en Español, it features programming 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, Fox Deportes, and ESPN Deportes.

6) YouTube TV

YouTube TV is your one-stop shop for watching the MLB playoffs, which is hardly surprising given its history as a primary sponsor. YouTube TV not only features FS1 and FS2, it also includes Fox Sports, basic Fox, and MLB Network. That’s on top of a robust if fairly basic plan that also includes FX, NBA TV, and AMC. (Here’s a breakdown of the full YouTube TV channel lineup.)

Game-changing feature: You can add up to six accounts per household, and each one of those accounts gets unlimited cloud DVR. Even better: You can fast-forward through ads in recorded programs.

Another way to watch FS1 online: Fox Sports Go

watch fs1 live stream fox sports go Fox Sports Go
  • Cost: Depends on the provider
  • Devices: Apple TV, iPad, Android TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, Amazon Kindle, Roku, iOS and Android devices (full list here)

What’s great about the Fox Sports Go app is that it unlocks the entire Fox Sports network, so long as the channel you want to watch is part of your cable or live TV package. That means you can use any of the options above with Fox Sports Go. (The Big Ten Network was once available on mobile through BTN2Go, on a separate app that functions similarly, but now it’s in the Fox Sports Go mix.)

With Fox Sports Go, you can watch FS1, FS2, Fox College Sports, Fox Soccer Plus, your regional Fox affiliate, and even Fox Deportes so long as you have an internet connection.
