How do you access FoxNews Channel when there are no options for a provider to sign in to? To get the full FoxNews you go to a sign in page and it gives you a long list of providers and you are supposed to pick one to sign in through. The list does not show Viasat, DSI, Exede or Liberty Satellitr, my local provider, as an option so I cannot get the full news channel shows only the individual segment that are made available on the home page. Any suggestions out there?

They are asking you for your TV provider whether that be satellite (Dish, DirecTV) or cable - Viasat isn't a TV provider but rather an internet provider. You need a TV provider for that - specifically you have to have a TV package that includes FNC.

Alternately you could go with a streaming provider having the necessary agreements with FNC - but nothing's free (you pay for it one way or another).

Yep that's not going to be related to Viasat. You need an active cable or satellite provider to watch it or sign in

Try the following.  I can't vouch for it, and I don't know if it only lasts for a short time, as in a preview fashion, but it worked for the few seconds when I tried it, though it appears to be a minute or two behind the live feed on my DirecTV.
