If you do not have cable or cannot get to a TV, you can watch a live stream of Fox on your computer, phone or streaming device via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
Fox (available live in select markets, which you can find here) is one of 85 channels included in the main Fubo bundle.
