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 a partnership of Sinclair Broadcast Group and Entertainment Studios as part of The Walt Disney Company's purchase of Fox's entertainment assets; Fox also sought to divest Fox Sports Networks but were barred from selling them to Disney by federal regulators. The sale included rights to the Fox Sports Go platform. For the time being, while Sinclair holds a transitional brand license for the Fox Sports brand, both Fox Sports and Fox Sports Networks content are linked from the Fox Sports Go homepage, with the former leading to FoxSports.com; when the brand license expires, Fox Sports Go will be required to rebrand, as the rights to the name will revert to Fox Corporation.[5][6]
