EVERYWHERE BUT HERE: FS1 will launch without its TV Everywhere application, Fox Sports Go. The app, which was widely expected to be available at launch, is not ready. "We're still testing it and working out the bugs," said Fox Sports VP/Communications Chris Bellitti. "It's a very complex app that will use one-of-a-kind authentication for live streaming. We want to make sure it's rock solid before we release it." There is no timeframe for when the app will be available. When it does launch, the app will feature live streaming to authenticated subscribers from FS1, over-the-air affiliates and Fox's RSNs. Network execs have promised about 1,100 live events a year on Fox Sports Go.
