Plus, a list of ways to stream FOX21

FOX21 and SOCO CW have been dropped from the DIRECTV channel lineup. Luckily, there are still several ways to watch your favorite local news, live sports, and TV shows.

Watch all FOX21 programming, including news, sports, and primetime

In the video above, FOX21’s Christina Dawidowicz explains how to set up an antenna to watch FOX21 over the air using your television.

Indoor antennas start at about $15 and are available at many local retailers and big-box stores, as well as online. There’s no monthly fee to use an antenna, and you don’t need Internet access.

Antennas typically need to be oriented or “aimed” to get the best signal from the desired station. TV reception can often be improved just by changing the location of your current antenna, even as little as a few inches. For example, moving it away from other objects or placing it higher or lower can often improve reception. Be sure to move the antenna slowly to allow time for the signal to be displayed.

In addition to over the air, FOX21 is available on all other major cable and satellite providers, including DISH, Xfinity, and CenturyLink. These providers charge a monthly fee for a subscription to a package of channels, including FOX21.

FOX21 is also available on Hulu with Live TV, PlayStation Vue, Fubo, and YouTube TV. These paid streaming services charge a monthly fee for a subscription to a package of channels, including FOX21. Many of these paid services offer free trials. Subscribers can watch on a variety of devices, including smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and streaming devices. Internet access is required.
