Fox Sports Go, the programmer’s authenticated TV Everywhere app, has officially launched on Roku players and integrated Roku TVs a week after announcing its debut on the new Apple TV.
The TVE app offers access to live feeds of Fox Sports, FS1, FS2, FOX Sports Regional Networks, FOX College Sports, FOX Deportes, and FOX Soccer Plus. Fox Sports estimates that about 95 million people in the U.S. have access to the app via their pay TV providers.
They noted that Fox Sports GO requires the Roku OS 7.2, adding that this version will become available on all Roku TVs soon.
“Roku players are some of the most popular connected streaming devices in the industry, and it’s a significant step towards completing full distribution of FOX Sports GO,” Clark Pierce, SVP, TV Everywhere at Fox Sports, said in a statement. “Roku now gives sports fans greater choice when streaming their favorite FOX Sports programming.”
“FOX Sports GO is a critical addition to the Roku channel lineup, giving Roku customers access to some of today’s most anticipated sports programs,” said Ed Lee, vice president, content acquisition, Roku. “We’re extremely excited to expand our sports offering with FOX Sports GO and bring more live sports programming to the Roku platform.”
Fox Sports Go also supports iOS and Android mobile devices, the Amazon Fire TV, Windows Phone, Android TV devices, and Web browsers.
