How to get the best news from Fox Sports and Fox Sports GO in 2018
With the season set to begin, Fox Sports will soon begin streaming the best sports news from around the world, with the Fox Sports Go app available to download from Apple devices.
The app will stream a selection of sports, entertainment, politics and entertainment content from Fox News and Fox Business Network, including the coverage of the FIFA World Cup, the Olympic Games and the NFL season, as well as a host of other major sporting events.
It will also include a number of exclusive and previously unannounced Fox Sports programming, such as the NFL Draft, the Ryder Cup, and the NASCAR race that pits drivers against one another in a virtual race.
The NFL Draft is a big deal for Fox, which was one of the first to televise it last year, and is also scheduled to stream live in the US this year.
“It’s going to be a big year for sports in America, but the NFL draft is going to have the biggest impact on the game in America,” said Fox Sports senior vice president of programming and development Rob Albertson.
“It will be an important year for us and Fox to get into the live NFL Draft with some great content.”
This year, the network will stream more than 500 games, with a total of 1,200 events available to stream across multiple platforms.
Fox Sports has traditionally streamed a lot of sports content in the United States, including NBA, NFL and NHL, but this year, Fox will begin streaming more events in the UK, Spain, France, Germany, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates, as a result of the 2017 Winter Olympics.
Fox’s Sportsnet GO app was also one of last year’s biggest winners, gaining a spot on the US store chart.
With the app, subscribers will be able to watch more than 300 hours of live and on-demand NFL and NBA games.
It will also have access to all of Fox Sports’ upcoming NFL, NBA and MLB programming, plus live content from the NHL Playoffs, as it is currently airing the 2017 Stanley Cup Final.
“We are thrilled to be able bring our award-winning sports content to subscribers in the U.S. and around the globe,” said Scott Miller, president of content for Fox Sports Group, in a statement.
“Fox Sports GO is an important step for us as we continue to grow and bring new fans into the network.
The platform will give us an opportunity to show the world how much Fox Sports fans love sports and to deliver the best in sports news.”
Fox is also adding new programming to the app in 2017.
The network will launch a new sports show on the channel on Monday, Jan. 21, with former Fox Sports broadcaster Jeff Van Gundy as co-host.
That show will include a live interview with Van Gundie, who will also be joined by former NFL coach Rex Ryan and former NBA coach Phil Jackson, who has also previously appeared on the network and is one of its executive producers.
The show will air on Fox Sports 1 from 6 a.m. to 7 a.mi.
ET, and on Fox Business as well.
Fox also plans to launch a live chat show on Monday on the Fox Business network, featuring Ryan, Jackson and Van Gundys talk show co-anchor and former NFL player Jeff Triplette.
It is expected to air on Monday mornings, after the NFL and MLB season ends.
