This is the best T.V. App I’ve ever used and I’ve used a lot of them. It’s better than NBC’s, CBS’s, ABC’s and History Channel’s. I used it to watch the ALDS while walking outside. I was able to rewind and pause the game. The closed captioning worked well and my favorite thing was being able to pause the game to let it get ahead and then skip past the commercials (please don’t change this option, I HATE that on the bigger stations apps you have to sit through the commercials and if you try to skip ahead then you have to watch another set of commercials!!!) The only negative was that sometimes it would stop sometimes or get fuzzy occasionally but I don’t know if that was the app or my network buffering. But I do recommend this app. You do need to log in with your cable provider or buy a subscription (if this is an option) though to use this app.
By far the worst of the sports viewing apps. It’s great if it is working, but that is usually around only 25% of the time. The other 75% is a mixture of black screens, frozen screens, and video quality that is so pixilated you can’t even tell what type of sport you’re even watching, let alone what is happening. The app will seemingly randomly drop resolution from normal to unwatchable when there is absolutely no change in connectivity and even regularly when your connection increases (i.e. from 3 bars to 5). It’s almost as if they put in the rewind function because they know that you’ll never be watching a game live if you actually want to see it. Don’t be fooled by the relatively high rating (3.1 stars as of this writing) the only positive reviews are about the quality of the content of the app (the amount of games and sports available to watch on FS go) and not the quality of the app itself, which is horrendous. Maybe they just don’t care because they know they have exclusive TV rights to most of their content so you physically can’t go elsewhere to watch games, because this app is atrocious. Sometimes my iPhone will even lock in the app as it freezes for so long and doesn’t make any attempt to unfreeze itself lest you exit out and start the video again. Please make changes soon as I pay for the ability to watch the World Cup but can usually only get about 20-30 minutes of a 90+ minute match.
In the last two to three weeks the FOX SPORTS GO app has left the building. I watch baseball on an iPhone. About every 15 minutes the control screen pops up(start over, resume live, go back/forward 10 sec, pause/start button, volume setting). At the same time the screen darkens so the game activity can barely be seen. If I touch the screen then it freezes the action, but the audio continues or it stops too. Tapping the pause/play button in the center of the screen does nothing to resume the action. Close it out and wait for it to warm up again, then wait for the game I was watching to fully open, taking 2-5 minutes. Doing all this I miss the game action while I am trying to get back to the game. Then other times the video gets so blurred that I can barely make out the human figures. That goes on for different amounts of time. I have sent about a half dozen emails to iPhone support with as much detail I can think of that might help them ID the problem. THE ONLY RESPONSE IN A WEEK HAVE BEEN THEM ASKING ME FOR 2 PIECES OF INFO. IHAVE ASKED FOR SOME KIND OF RESPONSE. NOTHING. THIS IS THE ONLY SPORTS APP THAT I HAVE SO MUCH TROUBLE TRYING GO WATCH A SPORTS EVENT. Like I told them I have another FOX app that I have no problems with.
This is by far the worst tv and sports app out there. For starters, it has all the sudden just stopped working on my Apple TV. It won’t even open the program I try to watch. It flashes a loading screen for half a second and goes back to the home screen. Have tried everything I can to fix this including resetting the Apple TV, deleting and reinstalling the app, and everything in between. Contacted customer support about it and they were useless. Tried having me answering tech questions that I didn’t even understand and I am a tech savvy guy. It is there job to figure out the deeply technical stuff, not mine. Otherwise why would I contact you? Now, for viewing on the iPhone, oh boy. It constantly freezes, usually in the middle of the biggest plays/moments, and doesn’t work with air play no matter how you try it. This is just the worst app I have ever used. You would think for such a large broadcast corporation, Fox would get this figured out. And yes, this all still happens no matter what my internet speed is or if I’m using WiFi or LTE. I have tried everything and nothing makes a difference. It truly is a joke of an app.
Thank you for being there for us sports fans who want just sports unlike ESPN who wants to inject politics as I’m one of those who has deleted everything and I refuse to support them in any way. I really wasn’t spending much time on your app but what a mistake and same with radio and TV I have grown to love your work, your mindset and the men and women you have working for your company. Again, thank you for sports and if I g those of us a break from all the real stuff in life and just sports and some fun to get away from life’s real things. No deal with dying human beings everyday and so when I say what I say it’s as real as anything, I work with ALS human beings daily and for all of you who do not appreciate or understand how lucky we all are with our health and the gift of life, trust me it is hardcore and at times I have no words for how blessed we all are. Thank you Fox for everything
