If you have cable or a live TV streaming package, you should stop what you’re doing and download Fox Sports Go. Why? The app makes it easy to watch a Fox Sports live stream no matter where you are, what device you’re using, or what Fox Sports channel you’re interested in—all at no additional cost to you. Whether you want to watch college football online or need a way to stream the 2018 MLB playoffs, here’s everything you need to know about Fox Sports Go.

How Fox Sports Go works

With Fox Sports Go, you can watch any channel in the Fox Sports network that’s included in your cable or live TV streaming subscription from one centralized app. That includes Fox Sports, FS1, FS2, Fox College Sports, Fox Soccer Plus, Fox Deportes, the Big Ten Network, and any regional Fox Sports channels you might have access to. You can see from the screenshot below that, based on my current location (just outside Dallas, Texas), I could stream two different Fox Southwest channels.

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 (the 2018 World Cup is still available), highlights, and all of your favorite shows: First Things First, Undisputed, The Ultimate Fighter, Speak For Yourself, and The Herd.

The Fox Sports Go app is free to download.

That means the true cost of using Fox Sports Go depends on your service provider.
