Are you a Sling TV subscriber? You may have noticed that Fox News and FS1 have been missing for a few hours now. When you look at the guide, it is not there and when you search for the channel, it is missing.

Update: Sling TV has confirmed to Cord Cutters News that they have experienced a technical issue that has disrupted some FOX fees. They hope to have it fixed soon.

For now, this looks to be a glitch as other Fox-owned channels like Fox Business and FS2 are still streaming and findable in the search. This suggests it is not a contract issue but a technical one.

We have also received reports of some Fox locals missing on Sling TV in markets that should have them. For now, we can not confirm thises reports like we could Fox News and FS1.

Sadly if you are affected by this outage, you will need to wait for Sling TV to find a fix. This seems to be a glitch as other fox owned networks are streaming, but for now, we will have to wait and see what happens.
