More Fox Shows Are Leaving Netflix




Over the last few months Fox has slowly been pulling its shows from Netflix. It started with popular shows such as “Bob’s Burgers” and has continued. Now in August we will see even more Fox shows leave Netflix including the remaining Fox-owned seasons of “American Dad.”

This all seems to be caused by Fox’s new deal with Hulu, which they are part owners of. Recently Fox announced it would be added 3,000 more episodes to Hulu including many shows that are currently on Netflix such as “American Dad.”

There are still many questions including what about Fox-owned shows such as “Bones” that are currently still on Netflix and have not had any date set for them to leave the streaming service. What we do know is that at some point this year they will be on Hulu.

So what are your options now if you are a Fox fan?

There is, of course, Hulu because many of these shows will be moving to Hulu soon; however, if you don’t want to subscribe to Hulu the following are a few options.

Fox Apps

Fox has apps on many popular streaming services. You won’t get a ton of content, but it does offer a small selection of Fox shows for free. To find the Fox Now apps, just search your app store. (More shows are available if you have a cable login.)

Season Pass

If you only want one or two Fox shows, the least expensive way to get them is a season pass from iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, or one of many other services out there.

Live TV

If you want to watch Fox live the best way is with an antenna. About 90% of Americans can get Fox 100% free over the air. Not sure if you get Fox where you live? Go to and enter your address to see what you can get.

If you add a DVR to your antenna, you can quickly build up a large catalog of 100% free Fox shows.

Can’t get Fox over the air?

If you cannot get Fox for free over the air we have good news for you. Fox is streamed for free on services such as Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and DIRECTV NOW. Not sure if they offer it in your area? Visit their sites to see if you can find out if they have Fox in your area. Not only will you get a live feed of Fox in many areas, all of these services offer on-demand access to many Fox shows.

Hopefully that helps you find the shows you want now that Fox shows are leaving Netflix.
