How to Watch FS1 and FS2 Online Without Cable
Watching FS1 or FS2 without cable is much easier than a few years ago.
There are five live TV streaming services that carry FS1 and FS2 in their channel lineup. So it really boils down to where and how you want to watch FS1 and FS2 live.
My top two picks for doing this right now is Hulu with Live TV, and fuboTV.
Both have great sports coverage that includes FS1 and FS2 in their basic channel lineup. fuboTV offers a free 7-day trial to new customers and has select live sporting events and entertainment programming in 4K HDR.
This guide is for people who want to cut the cord and keep watching their favorite live sports. It will outline the pros and cons of each of the live TV streaming services. So you can decide how exactly you want to watch a FS1 live stream without cable or satellite TV.
It doesn’t matter if you’re looking to stream live sports on an Apple TV, Fire TV, Roku, Xbox One or Android TV device, you’ll have a good idea which service is best for you at the end of this guide.
You’ll never have to pay for cable again to watch MLB games, NASCAR, golf, UFC matches or soccer matches, including the FIFA World Cup and Confederations Cup.
Can I watch FS1 Live on FOX Sports Go?
The same goes for live programs on FS2.
If you join a live TV streaming service like Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV or YouTubeTV, you can use your subscription to sign into the above mentioned apps and tap into live streams. So it’s an extra option to watch FS1 that’s especially useful when you’re traveling. I like keeping a Roku Streaming Stick with me when I’m on the road, so I can watch FS1 and other live TV channels by using my live TV subscription – even when I’m on the opposite end of the country.
With FOX Now I can get a live stream of FS1, FS2, Big Ten Network, a local FOX station, FOX Deportes and some key networks like FX, FXM, National Geographic and Nat Geo Wild. The app is like its own skinny bundle of live channels.
