A new game show is landing on Fox this summer and it features the funny and charming Dax Shepard as a host - Spin the Wheel. Contestants will have the opportunity to win over $20 million per episode, although I think we can all agree that will never happen. So, let's see how you can watch Spin the Wheel live online.
The show is actually produced by another name we're pretty sure you've heard of, namely actor and musician Justin Timberlake. Spin the Wheel will feature a massive, 40-foot wheel that holds large sums of cash prizes in its rotations. Contestants need to answer trivia questions and each correct answer adds more amounts of cash to the wedges, while a wrong answer adds more dangerous wedges that could bring their wins to zero.
Can't wait to watch #SpinTheWheel?

Frankly, we can't wait to see what prizes people win and how Dax Shepard will handle being a host. So far, he seems super excited for the opportunity, comparing his job to being Willy Wonka.
Spin the Wheel premieres on Thursday, June 20, at 9/8c on Fox. Let's see how you can watch it all.
How to Watch Spin the Wheel Online?
We use the Internet for pretty much anything these days and it gives us a ton of freedom. Well, watching TV online comes with the same freedom, but also with some limitations. Live TV platforms and streaming services are all geoblocked due to licensing deals, which means that you can't access them from outside the United States. This is quite unfortunate for those who often travel abroad, but it's not something that you can't overcome. All you need to do is to change your IP address and if you subscribe to a VPN service, that will be super easy to do. Here's what you need to do.
- First, you have to figure out which VPN you're going to use. Over the years we've reviewed dozens of these tools, but we found ExpressVPN to be one of our favorites thanks to the thousands of servers it has at its disposal and great security features. You should start by visiting the ExpressVPN website and following the steps to subscribe to the service.
- You can download the app for your device and install it. Then, you need to launch it and log into your account.
- The next step involves looking for a US-based server, which should be easy enough since there are dozens available.
- As soon as the connection is established, you can load the live TV service you chose to watch Spin the Wheel on, such as fuboTV, tune in to Fox and watch the show.
Can You Watch Spin the Wheel on Fox?
Yes, the FOX website does come with a live stream that you can use, which is pretty great. What's not so great is that you need to log into an account in order to gain access to it. For this, you need to have proof that you pay for Fox to some TV provider, so you need credentials from there to sign in. Whether that's a live TV platform or a cable provider it doesn't matter much, but since you're looking forward to watching Spin the Wheel online, we do suggest you go with the former.
How to Watch Spin the Wheel Without Cable?
It's really cool that we can watch TV online nowadays since we already do everything else on the Internet. Live TV platforms are cheaper than cable is and you can cancel your subscription whenever you feel like it since there's no contract involved. Plus, you can watch TV wherever you are, whether that's at work or at home, on the bus or on the beach, as long as you have a compatible device and an Internet connection. Let's see what options you have to watch.
fuboTV - First on the list is fuboTV, which is a great platform with tons of sports channels, but also plenty of entertainment networks. There's a single bundle you can get here - fubo ($54.99/mo) - and it features FOX as well as tons of other channels. You can add plenty of channel packs if you need more content, as well as quite a few premium networks.
Sling TV - The list continues with Sling TV, which is a highly versatile platform with a lot of customization options. There are three bundles you start with - Orange, Blue, and Orange + Blue. FOX is part of two of these bundles, namely Blue and Orange + Blue, and if you need more content, you'll find it in the packs they grouped by topic. There are, however, also some premium networks you can try out.
Hulu - Hulu is up next and it's a great platform that mixes things up. The $44.99 per month subscription will get you access to dozens of channels, including FOX, as well as the full video on demand library. You can add a couple of channel packs if you feel like it, as well as a bunch of premium networks.
YouTube TV - We also have YouTube TV on the list, which is a great single-bundle platform. For $49.99 per month, the service provides access to loads of content and some really cool features like unlimited cloud DVR storage space. FOX is, of course, part of the deal, but if you need even more content, you can add premium networks. There are no extra channel packs to add.
DirecTV Now - From one bundle to seven - we have DirecTV Now next. This one has a total of seven bundles nowadays after adding two new ones back in Spring - Plus, and Max. The other five bundles were renamed and given a much bigger price, but they're still there - Entertainment, Choice, Xtra, Ultimate, and Optimo Mas. FOX is part of all seven bundles so you can choose the one that has the right price for your budget or the right channel combo. If you still need more, you can add a couple of packs with Spanish channels, three international packs, as well as a bunch of premium networks.
PlayStation Vue - The list continues with PlayStation Vue, which is a service that comes with some great features. There are four bundles to choose between - Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra. All of them have FOX, which is great because you can focus your attention on the channel combo they offer. You can still add a couple of channel packs and several premium networks. When it comes to features, PlayStation Vue has some of the best we've seen - enough Cloud DVR storage space for 500 programs and five simultaneous streams.
How to Watch Spin the Wheel With a TV Antenna?
Yes, you can. FOX is one of the channels that broadcast over the air still, so you can watch anything with a TV antenna. Antennas are a favorite of cord cutters because they're cheap and you can watch TV for free. The only downside is that there's a very limited number of channels that still broadcast over the air.

Before you go ahead and buy an antenna, we do suggest you visit a site like NoCable which will tell you which TV channels broadcast over the air in your location, as well as how strong their signal is. This should give you a good idea if antennas a good idea for you, and if it all checks out, you get to figure out what range is best to look for in an antenna. We've already made you a suggestion - a device that has loads of positive reviews -, but you can pick your own after doing research.
