Having access to the local FOX affiliate is important for sports fans. FOX airs marquee sporting events all year long, including major college football, the 2022 World Cup, the World Series, NFL football on Sundays, and the 2023 Super Bowl. The good news is you can live stream sporting events on FOX with most major streaming devices, including Apple TV, Roku, Samsung Smart TV, iPhone, and more.
