The NFL on Fox is a Sunday staple throughout the NFL season, but is officially wrapped up for the 2023 season, meaning fans will have to wait until next September for the next game to air.

If you're looking to watch the Super Bowl, the big game is being broadcast by the NFL on CBS, though there are a handful of other ways to watch the game as well.

It's never too early to prep for next season though, so here is everything that you need to know about how to watch the NFL on Fox.

How to watch the NFL on Fox

Fox, as one of the four major US TV networks, is carried by all pay-TV cable providers, so if you have a cable subscription then you have access to your local Fox station and the NFL on Fox. Another option is a TV antenna, which can receive all local station signals, including Fox.

Live TV streaming services have become a popular alternative to traditional cable, but consumers can still get access to their local Fox stations through many of these services, including Fubo, Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV and YouTube TV.

Fox does not have its own streaming service, but if you are a subscriber to a traditional or live TV streaming service that carries the network, you can use that login to get the game on the Fox Sports app.

You can also stream your local Fox NFL game on NFL Plus, but only through a mobile phone or tablet.

There are also reports that Fox, ESPN and TNT are planning to launch their own sport-centric streaming service by September 2024, which would give consumers another way to watch the NFL on Fox, as well as other sports, but we don't have any confirmed details just yet.

UK NFL fans that are interested in how they can watch the weekly NFL games that air on Fox should know that free-to-air broadcaster ITV is taking over NFL broadcasts in the UK (from the BBC).

There are some additional paid-for options to watch NFL games in the UK, including Sky TV and the NFL Game Pass subscription service.
