These Are 5 Ways to Stream FOX, FS1, and Big Ten Network During Their Dispute with Dish & Sling TV

After removing Fox Regional Sports Networks from Dish and Sling last month, Dish Network is facing a new carriage battle. Yesterday, Fox owned-and-operated locals, FS1, FS2 were dropped by Sling TV, while Big Ten Network, Fox Deportes, Fox Soccer Plus were dropped by Dish in addition to the other channels.

The channels, along with Fox Regional Sports Networks, had previously been available as part of the Sling’s Blue plan — which has been decimated in the last month. While hopefully the two sides will ultimately come to a deal, in the meantime there are still other Live TV Streaming Services that offer FOX, FS1, and Big Ten Network.

While nothing is as inexpensive as Sling TV Blue ($25) – Hulu Live TV ($45), PlayStation Vue ($55), fuboTV ($55), and YouTube TV ($50), and AT&T TV NOW ($70) each offer FOX, FS1, FS2, and BTN.
