Live Stream St. Louis Cardinals Games on Roku, Fire TV
Fox Sports Midwest used to be exclusive to DISH Network, DIRECTV and cable TV. Now you don’t need these companies anymore watch St. Louis Cardinals games live.
In this guide, I’ll break down all your choices so that you’re no longer on the hampster wheel of rising prices or channel blackouts caused by contract disputes. I’m going to show you how to live stream FOX Sports Midwest and all your channels on a Roku, Fire TV and even a smartphone.
What’s the best option right now?
Hulu with Live TV is the best deal for most people because it has 65+ networks including FOX Sports Midwest, ESPN, ESPN2 and entertainment networks. There’s 50 hours of Cloud DVR. And you can stream live TV on up to two devices at once.
A subscription costs $44.99 per month. If you already subscribe to Hulu’s on-demand service, then getting their live TV plan will make the most sense.
That’s because Hulu with Live TV subscribers get unlimited access to the on-demand library, including Hulu Originals. So you’re essentially getting two streaming services for the price of one. You will also be able to activate the FOX Sports Go app, which adds a number of live streams that you may not find in your channel lineup. Oh, and you’ll be able to activate another 37 TV Everywhere apps on your streaming device.
It’s easy to check the availability of FOX Sports Midwest in your area.
Just head over to Hulu’s Live TV page and click on the link that says “View all channels in your area”. Punch in your zip code to get your channel lineup.
How can I stream FOX Sports Midwest without Dish, DIRECTV?
It’s time to join the rest of the country and learn how to cut the cord, especially if you’re a sports fan.
You may already know about the latest contract dispute between Fox Sports and DISH. Even if they work out a deal anytime soon, there’s a pretty excellent chance that your bill will be going up in the near future.
