FOX Is Pulling Almost Every Show It Has on Netflix

It looks like Netflix and FOX have completed their breakup. Over the last few months, FOX has slowly been pulling its shows and moving them over to Hulu.

Now FOX is pulling the remaining shows it is well known for and shows it owns rights to. “Prison Break,” “Family Guy,” “The Cleveland Show,” and “Bones” will all be pulled from Netflix next month. Even shows you may not know FOX owns such as “The Wonder Years,” which has been on Netflix since 2011, are being pulled.

Netflix and FOX’s current streaming deal started back in 2011 as best that we can tell. Some of the early shows included “The Wonder Years” and “Family Guy.”

Where can you access FOX content?

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 keep reading for a few other options.

FOX Apps

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

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

The best way to watch FOX live 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 Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, Hulu, and DIRECTV NOW. Not sure if they offer FOX 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, but all of these services also offer on-demand access to many FOX shows.

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

    Thanks, you reminded me that I need to cancel Netflix this week, though I wasn’t watching any of these FOX reruns.

      I’m right on the edge, too. I primarily watch old TV series on Netflix and the only new content I see on there are Netflix originals which simply don’t interest me.

    “Free” on PSVue or Sling if you “subscribe” to those services and it’s avaiable in your area.

      PS Vue makes you pay for them. That’s why they charge $40 and not $30 anymore.

    No live Fox on any Sling, Hulu or Directv Now in the Columbus Ohio area, I live 110 miles from Columbus and there is no antenna that will work. I have tried all the services, Directv Always buffering especially during prime time. I have found that Sling so far for me is the best option. No buffering issues, and they have my wife’s Hallmark. We also subscribe to Hulu and CBS Access to receive the ABC, FOX, NBC and CBS. Cost Sling 35.00 (but includes Blue package, DVR, and Hallmark) CBS Access is another 5.99 and Hulu is another 7.99. Total cost 49.00, we was playing over 100.00 for DirectTV.

      Like highly marketed old content Netflix originals from 80s-00s TV? Like no movies? I’ll pass. I don’t do anything because the news media tells me everybody does it.

    Good think I cancelled Netflix a few weeks ago and I prepaid Hulu for several years. I most likely will re-sign with Netflix but probably just during one or two months in the winter when the network shows are on break and to catch up on some of the originals that I like.

      NETFLIX had a PR Nightmare over the controversial cancellations of The Get Down, Sense 8, Gypsy, and GirlBoss. Ted Sarandos ruined NETFLIX, he needs to be fired. I hope NETFLIX does not have Degrassi: Next Class cancelled. If they do, I’ll protest!

      Hulu sucks. ONE stream at a time. Netflix 412=4 streams. Hulu $12=1 stream. This is better how?

    My folks subscribe to Commercial-Free Hulu last week to make up for the loses. We do have Hulu, NETFLIX, Amazon Prime despite being regular DIRECTV subs.

      yes pay $12 a month for the same content that was commercial free for less. Oh and ONE stream at a time. for the same $12 Netflix gives you 4 streams.

            No I did not say that. I said Netflix gives you “commercial free” for $12 and 4 streams. And $10 for 2 streams. Hulu charges $12 for “commercial free” and only gives you 1 stream. $10 is LESS than $12. Learn to f–king read.

            $7.99 is less too with ads. What is your point? Two streams? Why?

            Phuq_Me September 26, 2017 at 5:37 am #

            Yes with ads. That’s the point these same shows are on Netflix WITHOUT ads. Now they will have ads unless you pay $12 a month then you only get ONE stream. You ask two streams? I guess you are single and plan on staying that way forever. A family is going to have MULTIPLE people who want to watch Hulu at the same time. I get 4 steams with Netflix they all get used.

            A family would have multiple streams but the assumption is a single user unless rebutted. Netflix has old shows though not current shows. They have shows that have been released on DVDs. That is a long time from the original air date.

            I swear you are stupid. The average household has 2.6 members. How do you ASSUME every household is single? No wonder you don’t have a girlfriend/wife or whatever.

            Why would we assume more than one person per household? Not every household is married with kids. That assumption is stupid and incorrect. Don’t insult me or you will be blocked uou have been warned.

      Does commercial free $7.99 have Fox shows on demand? Is Fox only live?

    Netflix: As a family, we watch quite a bit of content other than these shows via Netflix every month. As such, I do not see us cancelling it in the near future.

    Hulu: Already subscribed to it – so no big deal as it is simply changing locations.

    For those who do not subscribe to Hulu and would only do so to watch these shows, always remember there is the library as well.

    My household has an antenna. Netflix and Feeln (soon to be Hallmark Movies Now). Not going to miss any of those shows; we saw them when they were new and a lot of them are on the rerun stations and our local library has the DVDs of many of the shows.

        It’s not the fault of Netflix. Every company that owns content is starting a streaming service to make more money. My point is, More providers are pulling content from Netflix in order to line there own pockets. At some point the conflict of interest will be too great and Netflix won’t be allowed to carry much content. Less content, Less subscribers and the domino’s keep falling. It’s not rocket science, Just simple economics.

        The golden age of streaming is just starting to take effect. Netflix has been dominate because they have been about the only one. I would say take a look at the numbers one year from now, I bet there subscriber base falls off by quite a bit.

          I agree about the US subscription numbers, but in other countries there is less competition (as far as I’m aware) and so international growth is likely to continue.
