If you are looking for other alternatives to Hulu Live TV, that still carry Fox Sports RSNs, well you only have one option: AT&T TV NOW, which is $25 more expensive, since it requires their $79.99 Max Plan.

We compared channels, DVR, pricing, and plans of six alternatives for Hulu + Live TV subscribers.
