You can find our guides for other broadcast channels on Directv like ABC, CBS, and NBC here.

There are other Fox channels like FS1 and Fox News on DIRECTV. We’ve figured out where those channels are in your area.

Most Common Fox Directv Channels

The most common channels where Fox will be on DirecTV in the country are channels 2 and 5.

Channel 2 is the right channel for Fox in San Francisco, Honolulu, Detroit, Brownsville, and St. Louis.

It’s interesting but KTVU is a special super affiliate for Fox in San Francisco.

You can go to Channel 5 to watch Fox in Washington DC, Atlanta, Las Vegas, and New York.

There are also two cities where Fox is available on two lowered-numbered channels – Louisville and Minneapolis.

Minneapolis residents can watch on Channel 9 and 29 while those who reside in Louisville can watch on Channel 41 and Channel 59.

High Numbered Channels

As a broadcast channel, Fox is usually one of the first channels on your TV guide.

Unfortunately, there’s a number of big cities in the US where that’s not the case.  This is a legacy of Fox starting in the 1990s as a disrupter to CBS and NBC.

Some cities where this is the case include San Diego and Omaha.  We put a fuller list of higher-numbered Fox channels below.

San Diego: 69
Bakersfield: 58
Charlotte: 46
Baltimore: 45
Norfolk: 43
Omaha: 42
Sacramento: 40

Fox On Directv (CA/TX/FL)

While every part of America is special, we found that there is a high density of big cities in California, Texas, and Florida.

That’s where the majority of Directv customers live.

For the other broadcast channels, we could see patterns in which channels ABC or CBS were located in these big states.

That wasn’t the case for Fox.  For example in Florida, Fox is on Channel 4 in Fort Worth but it’s on Channel 35 in Orlando.
