Fox Sports Quietly Releases Live Streaming Mobile App Fox Sports Go On iTunes
Published October 8, 2013
Fox Sports has quietly released on Apple's iTunes app store Fox Sports Go, its live streaming mobile application that had been originally intended to become available in conjunction with the August debut of FS1. In the days just before the Aug. 17 launch of FS1, the app was delayed to ensure performance reliability. Fox Sports Go, representing the network's push into TV Everywhere, provides live streaming of NASCAR, UFC, NCAA football and basketball, UEFA soccer and its FS1 studio shows. At present, Fox Sports Go is available on an authenticated basis to subscribers of Comcast, AT&T U-verse, Optimum, Suddenlink, WOW!, and Midcontinent Communications. Fox Sports plans to begin promoting Fox Sports Go more aggressively, including on-air mentions, later in the year. The network previously planned to fold its standard Fox Sports mobile app, providing scores, news, gametracking and other content, into Fox Sports Go. But for the time being, Fox Sports and Fox Sports Go will exist as two separate apps.
