FOX Sports and Samsung Debut Interactive App Experience for MLB Fans

FOX Sports’ 25th season of MLB Postseason coverage and Samsung have a new way for fans to enjoy the game. FOX Sports 5G View Powered by Samsung is an app designed for Android 5G users and powered by more than 90 stadium cameras to let users get an interactive, close up look at the action.

“After recently reimagining the FOX Sports app, we’re thrilled to work with Samsung to add this exclusive 5G smartphone experience for the NLCS and World Series,” said David Katz, EVP and Head of Digital, FOX Sports. “During these unique times for fans, we have an immense opportunity to get them closer to the action with impactful, creative solutions during some of our biggest moments. This collaboration combines the best of FOX Sports production and mobile user innovation for the fan of the present and future.”

Features within the app include:

  • Interactive video-player: Empowers the viewer to be the director, with the ability to rotate around the action and zoom in/out during live games for a closer look at plays at the plate, down-the-line hits or a fastball right on the corner
  • Multi-view feature: Offers five unique camera angles from around the diamond
  • Highlights: Updated throughout the game to let fans re-live game-changing moments for players and teams in their quest for the trophy
  • Rewind: Fans can rewind back up to 3 minutes during live games — an opportunity for a second look at an important inning or sequence

Viewers can access FOX Sports 5G View Powered by Samsung through the redesigned FOX Sports app. It’s available now on 5G-enabled Android smartphone devices, including the new Galaxy Note20 series, Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy S20 FE via the Google Play Store.
