Great app high quality
I love this app to death! I’m a huge Timberwolves fan. Well, at one point in time that wasn’t the case. I would follow the Timberwolves, you know, check the box scores and ask real fans how they would do on any given night. I was that “fan”... until this app came stumbling into my life. Now I can watch and do watch them on a very regular basis due to the notifications and the overall ease of use of this app. Now, I’m not sure how you feel about Fox as a whole, but they do sports and they do it well. Especially, in the new era. Where other companies, not to name any names *coughs NBC* have struggled in this area Fox has embraced it and did the ground work necessary to make it work. A lesson to every one out there nothing good comes without hard work. Another side note I love the World Cup and this app kept me so stupidly connected to the World Cup that all my soccer fan friends couldn’t believe the amount of ridiculous info I would spit at them. In an age where you can feel so easily left out because you didn’t catch this or didn’t catch that. This app eases the FOMO that we all hatefully and in my opinion unnecessarily experience on a daily basis. Thank you Fox or what ever third party you hired. Keep up the good work, who knows maybe I’ll give Fox News a chance. Hmm... Maybe I’ll just stick to sports for now!
Can’t even tell what type of sport you’re watching
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.
Where did it go????
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
Good with some Glitches
Commercials are short! I really like how you can join an event live or watch from the beginning an event that’s already started. However, sometimes the audio gets mixed up and you hear both the beginning audio and current audio at the same time. Exiting out of the video player and restarting usually fixes the problem. I mainly use this for the World Cup, and appreciate the highlights in addition to live play. However, several of the highlights (over half!) don’t work when you hit play - neither the video or audio, even though it shows it’s playing in the progress bar.
One of the best sports apps!
I primarily use the FOXSports App to watch Yankee Games. Unlike some other sports app FOXSports App allows u to pause, rewind n Fast Fwd live TV, which I like a lot. It is also very quick to load n I’ve never experienced buffering or any sort of server overload. I also like that u can access all 3 FOXSports Apps via the drop down menu n all FOXSports channels within the App. Transferring back n forth is quick n easy. The highlights tab is great n covers everything I want with ease. The future TV/App listings built into the home page is perfect. All-in-all the functionality of the App is better than most n super easy to use. I rate the App overall with a 5/5 stars by itself n in comparison to all other sports apps it’s definitely one of the best! I highly recommend it for watching Yankee games live and replays from the past. -r
I like Fox Sports so don’t get me wrong that I am a Pro ESPN guy; I’m not. I watch and listen to more sports talk on Fox than any other station. It’s just that this app is so buggy. The videos don’t play about 25% of the time. I had full bars today for WiFi and with my wireless provider but it kept popping up network error. Then it finally went thru and I clicked to watch the 1 highlight of the 1 goal in the World Cup game and it wouldn’t load, no error message, nothing. This has happened numerous times. Also, I have Directv and Sports package with all Fox sports channels but when I got on their website to watch a World Cup match it said it wasn’t in my package. That’s funny because when I turn on my TV it comes right up. Maybe they can’t handle the traffic of the WC right now IDK. Plus this app doesn’t have a friendly schedule browser, no scores, no sports schedules, it’s just strictly a video app. That is fine if the VIDEOS ACTUALLY WORK!😩
I had to make this 5 stars because my 1 star review wouldn’t go through. Hmm 1. Lately I’ve been having to sign in again almost every time I open the app. 2. An old problem that seemed to be solved with a previous update has once again started with the latest update: when signing in with DirectTV, it won’t accept a userID. It will only accept an email address, which DirectTV doesn’t use anymore. Again, this very annoying problem from last year seemed to be fixed but has started again. Last year it was only a problem on the app and would work on the website on a pc, but I haven’t checked the website yet this time around. Please fix this, as this is the only way I get to watch the Cardinals!!
If I Could Give 0 Stars I Would
This app is a steaming pile of garbage that has been set on fire then dedicated on by 1,000 stray cats with intestinal issues. I do not own a cable box nor satellite or anything of that sort. I have always streamed TV, mainly live sports, using different streaming apps. Everyone of my apps works fine and has been working fine for over a year, except this piece of landfill waste put out by the Fox developers. 85% of the time the chrome cast option doesn’t even appear, and yes I reset my TV and redownload the app and check the internet connection and even turn my phone on and off, when the option works for literally 7 other streaming apps I have! Then if by some miracle this hot mess of an app lets me chrome cast the connection is jumpy and fuzzy and just a terrible overall experience. If I could create a perfect world the first thing I would do is destroy fox and the app they have created and never allow them to broadcast another sporting event!
Fox Sports SW
I would like an explanation from Fox Sports why a positive “customer service” dispute with Dish TV cannot be reached? I have spoken to Dish on many occasions regarding the inability of both Dish and Fox Sports not being able to reach an agreement regarding money. Do you both honestly think this is fair to the patrons and customers who are powerless to do anything? They say they have offered a compromise that Fox will not accept. So far in Oklahoma, we have missed the whole Thunder season of viewing. A Dish tech told me Dish thought the Thunder season was going to be a bust and they did not want to subscribe any longer, just like they did with HBO. All we want are answers and to know whether there are even any negotiations going on or not to resolve this and resume coverage of our sports events!
Good App - Could be better
Overall, I enjoy the app. It’s definitely nice being able to watch my local teams when I’m away from the house. A couple of things I wish they would add/fix. 1) They need to add the setting to stream HD only on WiFi. This app will run up your data pretty quickly if you have a strong cellular connection and your able to stream HD quality. It would be nice to stream at 480p when on cellular to cut down on my data use. 2) It’s annoying that I have to renter my satellite provider credentials almost every week. I’m not sure why it doesn’t retain my information, or utilize the single sign on ability that I should have from entering my credentials in the TV Provider settings of my iPhone. I thought the whole purpose of entering your credentials there was to prevent from having to resign into other apps every time.
This app is a waste of space
I must not be watching the same sports as the people who think this app is amazing. I have tried multiple times on multiple occasions to watch a game they advertise as having available and I have yet to have success watching anything. Either it cannot authenticate my service provider or it gives me a black screen. One person who left a review said that all the haters are spoiled. Sorry. If an app promises to do one job and can’t manage to do that one job then I don’t think we are all spoiled. It would be perfectly understandable if there were a few glitches during a game. Frustrating sure, but understandable considering this is a live stream. But when you can never get the app to do the one job it is supposed to do (show you a live feed of the sporting event you want to watch), then that is a problem. I think it’s time for some major updates and improvements to this app.
Better than expected
I didn’t expect much from this app, just wanted to be able to catch my regional NHL team’s games while away from home. They are always available and I’ve never had a problem with connection or quality with a good data or wi-fi source. I can even cast from the app to my TV which is a great plus. Allows me to also catch regional NBA games and college basketball. Occasionally I will get a black screen when pressing play after pausing or losing signal, but it is easily fixed by completely closing out and restarting the app and doesn’t happen enough to bother me. None of the issues with blackouts that you get with ESPN either.
Update: either they fixed the prior issue with an “all team” dropdown on college football, or else I found it finally (at the very bottom). Regardless, I found it and it’s working great. I’m finding this to be the best sports APP of all. So much so that I have eliminated the ESPN APP from my iPhone. I'm new to your App. I'm wondering why there isn't a drop down menu that lets you select ALL teams when looking at scores, rather than Top 25 and Conference. For example, I want to see who's playing tonight. If they aren't Too 25, then I have to search every conference. Please fix this ASAP. The app is working well for MLB and I'm enjoying the way your alerts work.
