Get FOX with Hulu, FOX.com, or an app

Nearly all FOX shows—except sports events—are available to stream on-demand through Hulu the day after they run on broadcast TV, thanks to the shared ownership of Disney. If you can wait 24 hours (sometimes less) to watch the latest episode of 9-1-1, on-demand Hulu ($6.99–$12.99 a month) is a great option.

You can stream recent episodes of FOX shows at FOX.com, but you’ll need a cable, satellite, or live-TV-streaming provider login ID to access them. You can also watch FOX and several FOX-related channels live at FOX.com.

The FOX Now app in your streaming TV device’s app store features both live and on-demand FOX feeds but, like FOX.com, it requires a cable, satellite, or live-TV-streaming provider login ID to use it.

What’s FOX?

FOX launched in 1986 as an “edgier” competitor to the long-established Big 3 of American broadcast TV, ABC, CBS, and NBC. Since then, FOX has produced hundreds of world-famous TV properties like The X-Files, Beverly Hills 90210, American Idol, Married . . . with Children, and more shows featuring Gordon Ramsey screaming at kitchen staff than you can shake a ladle at.
