FSN on Roku without paid TV subscriber

I have read so much online and more confused now. Can I get a subscription for FSN and watch it on Roku without a TV subscription for any of the TV streaming companies?

Just pay for FSN subscription and watch it on Roku app?

Re: FSN on Roku without paid TV subscriber

I don't have the service but I believe you can sign up for Fox Nation and watch via Roku. Fox Nation gives you access to the live Fox News feed and some original programming (featuring some of the fox news personalities) Fox Nation also lets you stream most of the fox news schedule once a program has aired for the day.

I think it is like $ 6.00 a month for the monthly plan and a bit less if you sign up for a year.

I am pretty sure it has some kind of free trial period, so you can check it out before you decide to actually pay for the service.

Re: FSN on Roku without paid TV subscriber

Fox has so many different entities it gets very confusing. 

By FSN do you mean Fox Sports North?  Fox Sports Network (which might be FS1 or FS2)?  Or something else?

Here are a couple of resources you can use to see which services carry any particular channel:

Fox Sports wants to be paid.  They get paid out of a cable/satellite/other subscription that carries it.  As far as I've been able to determine a stand-alone subscription to Fox Sports is not offered.

Some subscriptions viewable via Roku may carry Fox Sports.  As mentioned previously, here are a couple of resources you can use to see which services carry any particular channel:
