FOX Sports Go Review

What is FOX Sports Go?

FOX Sports Go is a free streaming app that comes with your subscription to certain streaming providers, including AT&T TV, fuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV. That means it’s not actually a standalone streaming platform, but an add-on that you get through another subscription to a streaming service or with your cable provider. Best of all, it costs nothing.

With access to your favorite regional sports, FOX Sports Go allows you to stream wherever you are, any time. Just log in using your existing TV provider or streaming platform credentials, and you can start watching live sports at no cost.

What to watch on Fox Sports Go

FOX Sports Go offers a variety of live TV, replays, and highlights so you can watch all of your favorite sporting action. However, the games you have access to depends on your location – it’s tailored to your FOX Regional Sports Network, so you might not have every channel available.

You can choose from the following categories after you’ve logged in:

  • Live TV
  • Replays
  • Highlights

You can also filter through sports that are live now, featured, and upcoming.

Programming includes live sports such as MLB, NASCAR, NBA, and NHL. You can also watch plenty of live baseball, basketball, boxing, college football, and soccer, including NCAA action.

Some live channels are missing from the FOX Sports Go app, though. To stream BRN, Deportes, FOX, FS1, FS2, you’ll need to watch through the FOX Sports app or on the FOX Sports website instead.

You also get plenty of replays and highlights to enjoy, too. There are replays of First Things First, The Journey: Big Ten Football, TMZ Sports, and WWE Friday Night Smackdown, so you don’t have to miss out. Highlights include basketball, football, soccer, and key interviews with players and managers for extra insight into the sporting world.

FOX Sports Go features

Features like simultaneous connections and cloud DVR storage depend on the streaming provider you choose. That also means costs vary, too.

To watch FOX Sports Go on AT&T TV, you’ll need the Choice package that costs $54.99/mo. This comes with 500 hours of cloud DVR storage, so you can download and re-watch content, and 1 simultaneous stream. You get other streaming services like Epix, HBO, and Starz included with your subscription.

fuboTV’s basic package costs $54.99/mo. with a seven-day free trial and access to FOX Sports Go. With this plan, you have 2 simultaneous streams and 30 hours of cloud DVR storage. You also get hundreds of other channels, too, including sports from FS2, NBCSN, and NFL Network.

Hulu + Live TV offers 1 plan that costs a flat rate of $54.99/mo, with access to FOX Sports Go. There’s a one-week free trial, so you can try it out at no cost first. Your plan comes with 2 simultaneous streams, 50 hours of cloud DVR storage, and over 60 other channels. You can upgrade to unlimited screens and 200 hours cloud DVR storage for an extra $9.99/mo. each.

Sling TV has 3 different plans, but you’ll need to sign up for the Sling Blue package at $30/mo. to get FOX Sports Go. Your first month is discounted by $10, although there’s no free trial. You can also choose the Sling Blue & Orange package for $45/mo. if you want FOX Sports Go alongside all the other entertainment, comedy, and news channels. 

With a Sling TV subscription, you get 10 hours of cloud DVR storage included, but you can upgrade to 50 hours for $5/mo. extra. Sling Blue also comes with 3 simultaneous connections, but if you chose the combined package, you get 4.

YouTube TV has just 1 plan and, it costs $49.99/mo. Alongside access to FOX Sports Go, you get even more FOX channels such as FOX, FS1, and FS2. You also have unlimited cloud DVR so you can record and watch back as much as you like. You can keep recordings for up to 9 months. And you can watch your favorite regional sports on 3 of your devices simultaneously.

The Fox Sports Go app (with whichever streaming provider you choose) also comes with extra features like non-Wi-Fi streaming. You can stream using your mobile data, but remember that charges apply if you go over your data allowance. You can also change your Wi-Fi settings to Wi-Fi-only streaming if you don’t want to risk eating away at your data.

The final cut

If you’re already a subscriber to a streaming service like fuboTV or Sling TV, you can start watching FOX Sports Go completely free. There’s no cost to add it to your subscription, which means you can find all of your favorite live sports, replays, and highlights whenever you need them. But you do need to check which channels are available in your area, as FOX Sports Go only supports regional channels.

Not sure which provider to go for? Think about how much cloud DVR storage you need and the number of devices you want to watch FOX Sports Go across. Either way, it’s completely free, so it’s a win-win situation.
