What Channel Is Fox On Satellite TV?

On DISH, you can watch Fox Sports. FOX Sports 1 is on channel 150 and can be viewed in all of DISH’s America’s Top bundles.

What is the best way to watch FOX on DISH?


Due to a local channel dispute between Nexstar, the owner of FOX 31 in Denver and FOX 21 in Colorado Springs, and DISH Network, the channel is now absent in DISH subscribers’ typical TV selection in Denver and a few other locations where Nexstar owns the FOX station.

Fortunately, Buffs fans in Colorado and other cities where Nexstar owns the local FOX station will still be able to watch the Colorado vs. Utah game, which is due to begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday.

An antenna is the most reliable way to see FOX 31, or your local FOX broadcaster.

It’s the same technique that fans who recall watching TV before cable or satellite companies are familiar with.

If you have an HDTV, you may access your local over-the-air stations, including FOX, as well as a variety of other over-the-air channels, by purchasing an antenna.

Aside from the cost of an antenna, this is a no-strings-attached option. Depending on where you live, it may be as simple as mounting the antenna behind the TV, or it may require a more involved setup that involves raising the antenna as high as possible (attic, roof, etc.).

If you go to the FCC website and put in your zip code, it will tell you which channels are available over the air and which way you should aim your antenna to get them.

Antennas cost between $25 and $50 and can be found at a variety of stores.

A short search on Amazon reveals a number of items that may be available for next-day delivery if ordered by Thursday.
