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 Premier Boxing Champions, Major League Soccer matches, NASCAR races, and USGA Championships. In 2019, FS1 will also host 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, afternoon debate program Speak for Yourself, and weekly highlight program UFC Tonight, which airs on Wednesdays.
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. (And you’ll be able to use your subscription to use Fox Sports Go when you’re on the move.) 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.
1) Sling TV
- Cost: $25-$40 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
- Sling TV devices: Amazon Fire TVs, Android Fire Stick, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, Xbox One, Google Chromecast, Oculus Go, and iOS and Android devices
- Sling TV local channels: NBC, Fox (check your local availability here)
Sling TV is your cheapest option for an FS1 live stream. Sling Blue, which costs $25 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 $40 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.
- Cost: $44.99 for your first month and $54.99 per month thereafter (after a 7-day free trial)
- FuboTV devices: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, iOS and Android devices
- FuboTV local channels: Fox, NBC, CBS (check local availability here)
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 ESPN. Here’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.
- Cost: $40 per month
- Hulu devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and iOS and Android devices
- Hulu local channels: ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, the CW (check your local availability here)
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.)
- Cost: $44.99-$79.99 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
- PlayStation Vue devices: PlayStation 3 and 4, Roku, Amazon Fire, Google Chromecast, Kodi, iOS and Android devices
- Local channels: NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS (enter your ZIP code here to check your availability)
PlayStation Vue has the most expensive entry-level package in live TV streaming, but not by much, and for the price point, you’re still getting a great deal. The $44.99 per month Access package includes both FS1 and FS2, as well as FX, CNN, AMC, ESPN, and more. PlayStation Vue does have one trump card, though: It’s Kodi compatible. You can see the full list of PlayStation Vue channels here.
Game-changing feature: You can stream on up to five devices at once, and there’s unlimited cloud DVR.
5) YouTube TV
- Cost: $49.99 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
- YouTube TV devices: Google Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, Xbox One, iOS and Android devices
- Local channels: NBC, CBS, Fox, ABC, the CW (enter your ZIP code here to check your availability)
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.)
- How to stream Pac-12 Network online
- How to stream ACC Network Extra
- How to watch Mountain West Network football games online
- How to watch Big Ten Network online
- How to watch SEC Network online
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.
Other ways to watch FS1 online
- 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 notable exception is the Big Ten Network, which is available on mobile through BTN2Go, which is a separate app that functions similarly.) 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.
