Fox Sports Go (FSGO) is the over-the-top service of Fox Sports Networks. The service is available for customers of select cable and satellite TV providers, as well as over-the-top services like FuboTV.

The service was initially introduced as Fox Sports' TV Everywhere service, including access to content from networks such as Fox Sports 1 and Big Ten Network (the latter already offered under the brand BTN2Go). Super Bowl XLVIII was streamed for free without authentication on personal computers and tablets, but not on mobile phones due to exclusive rights held by Verizon Wireless.[1] The event averaged 1.7 million viewers on the platform.[2]

For regional telecasts, NBA games are available, and Major League Baseball games from the Fox Sports regional networks became available starting with the 2016 season, after Fox Sports and MLB came to an agreement for in-market streaming rights in November 2015.[3] Fox reached a similar deal for regional National Hockey League games beginning in the 2016–17 season.[4]

In 2019, Fox Sports Networks was sold to The Walt Disney Company as part of its acquisition of 21st Century Fox, although they are being divested to a group led by Sinclair Broadcast Group to comply with antitrust conditions on the purchase. The sale included rights to the Fox Sports Go platform; as a result, Fox Sports national telecasts and channels are no longer available on Fox Sports Go, and are now carried on FoxSports.com and the Fox Sports app.[5][6]
