Watch Fox News for Free
Some of the streaming services that carry Fox News offer a free trial. You can take advantage of those and watch free Fox News for almost a month or longer if you use different email addresses. Let’s look at the free trials available.
- FuboTV – offers a 1-week free trial.
- DIRECTV STREAM – Try their 5-day free trial
- YouTube TV – offers a 1-week free trial
As long as you cancel before the free trial expires, you won’t be charged. You can cycle the free trials to get nearly a month of Fox News free. If you get creative with email addresses and payment methods, you could watch free Fox News even longer. Doing this would also let you test out the various live TV streaming services to see which one you like the best.
Watch with the Fox News Go App
If you decide to subscribe to any of the services mentioned above, you will also have access to the Fox News Go app. Most think you need a cable provider login to utilize the Fox app, but that isn’t the case. The login credentials you use for Hulu, FuboTV, YouTube TV, and Vidgo will also work to unlock live and some on-demand Fox content.
You can even download the Fox app on your Roku, Apple TV, or Amazon Fire TV and watch on your television using the credentials from any of the services mentioned above. There are detailed instructions in the next section on installing and activating the Fox News Go app on your streaming device.

How To Watch on Your Device
