The sports streaming platform is now available on Apple's media player.
FOX Sports has announced the addition of FOX Sports GO to the Apple TV channel lineup. The app offers access to FOX Sports' live events and studio programming.
"Apple TV will be a game changer for viewing live sports, delivering up to four simultaneous streams for fans watching their favorite teams. FOX Sports GO users will also be able to watch at a remarkably fluid 60 frames per second," said Devin Poolman, Senior Vice President, Product Development, FOX Sports Digital.
With FOX Sports GO, Apple TV users who receive FOX Sports TV networks through their pay-TV subscription can now access FOX Sports, FS1, FS2, FOX Sports Regional Networks, FOX College Sports, FOX Deportes, and FOX Soccer Plus on their Apple TVs directly through the app. In total, users can watch more than 3,000 live events -- including content from the NFL, MLB, UFC, NASCAR, Big 12 and Pac-12 Football, Big East Basketball, FIFA World Cup, and UEFA Champions League soccer -- along with hundreds of hours of studio shows and original content. In addition, FOX Sports GO on Apple TV offers several new features, including a 60 frames-per-second streaming rate and a Multiview Display option, which lets users watch up to four FOX Sports live streams on one screen at the same time.
FOX Sports GO is now available for the Apple TV (4th generation) through the Apple TV app store. Mobile iOS users can also download the app for their iPads and iPhones. Beyond the new FOX Sports app, Apple also recently announced the release of their new Apple TV Remote app for iPhones. In addition to standard navigation and playback controls, the app also includes support for Siri voice searches.
