Fox Sports Go is a companion app to the Fox Sports family of channels.Fox Sports Go is essential for streaming live sports from Fox Sports regional networks, like Fox Sports Southwest, Fox Sports Ohio, and YES Network.It also hooks you up with your market’s Fox College Sports regional network (Atlantic, Central, or Pacific).It requires a log-in from a cable provider or streaming service to access it; Hulu, AT&T, and YouTube TV will work. To stream all live Fox Sports events, including what’s on FS1, FS2, Fox Deportes, and Big Ten Network, you’ll want the Fox Sports app or visit foxsports.com. Fox Sports Go vs. Fox Sports app
Prior to May 2019, Fox Sports Go was a one-stop app allowing users to access all Fox Sports content. But thanks to Disney buying the Fox Sports regional networks, you now need access to the Fox Sports app or foxsports.com to access everything the network offers. If there’s a live game on FS1, for example, you want the Fox Sports app rather than the Fox Sports Go app to watch it. (You can also access your streaming service directly if Fox Sports channels are part of your streaming plan.)
Fox Sports Go is a must if you’re looking to stream any of your hometown teams airing games on Fox Sports regional networks. It does also carry some programming from Fox Sports sites.
How Fox Sports Go works
All you have to do, after downloading the app or visiting the Fox Sports Go site, is enter your credentials. That will remove the key icon you see above, indicating the content that requires a subscription to unlock. The app and site will automatically load with the channels available in your area. You also get access to replays, highlights, and select shows.
Fox Sports Go devices
Fox Sports Go works with most streaming devices, including Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, XBox One, and iOS and Android devices. (This list includes the full technical specs.)
Fox Sports Go cost
The Fox Sports Go app is free to download. However, as mentioned above, you’ll need a cable or live TV streaming subscription in order to unlock the vast majority of the content you want to watch, including all of the live streams. That means the true cost of using Fox Sports Go depends on your service provider.
How to stream your Fox Sports regional network
The key to maximizing your Fox Sports Go app is unlocking your Fox Sports regional network. Here’s a breakdown of all of the live TV streaming services that will set you up.
Hulu Live TV
Hulu Live TV is a great way to stream live TV, as it comes with access to Hulu’s massive library of on-demand content. You’ll be able to choose from movies, shows, and Hulu’s original programming, and keep up with what’s new each month. Hulu plans even include a bundle option where you can access Disney+ and ESPN+ along with Hulu.
Hulu Live TV’s sports coverage includes the full suite of ESPN channels (including ESPN2, ESPNews, ESPNU, and ESPN College Extra), FS1 and FS2), NBSCN, the Olympic Channel, and the Big Ten Network. Hulu’s also got you covered for news and entertainment in its nearly 70-channel package. Your Fox Sports regional network depends on what market you’re in.
AT&T TV Now
If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month.
At its most basic Plus tier, you can find sports staples like ESPN, ESPN2, and FS1. Considering that AT&TV TV Now plans include the loaded Xtra, Ultimate, and Premier tiers, as well as the Spanish-language Optimo Mas package, you can find whatever sports channel you’re seeking in at least one of the AT&T TV Now plans. If you’re looking for a Fox Sports regional network, start at the Xtra level, though at the Premier level, you can get all the regions.
The YouTube TV channel list includes local channels and plenty to keep kids (and kids at heart) occupied, including Disney Channel and its companion channels, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network—all in one easy-to-access package. It even comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. YouTube add-ons include HBO Max, Showtime, and Starz. YouTube TV packages have some advantages over their competitors, including a generous DVR and multiple screens package. From one account, each user can create an individual profile to track favorite shows.
It’s a great option for sports fans. It comes with ESPN, ESPN2, FS1, FS2, and NBCSN at the ready. Deeper sports cuts, like NBA TV, MLB Network, CBS Sports Network, ESPNU, and Fox Regional sports networks are also part of the YouTube TV plan.
