If Fox Sports was like Fox News they would only show WWE.

I'd love to see the Olympics covered by Fox instead of NBC.

Coverage includes MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL, UEFA Champions League, UFC, and more, depending on regional restrictions.

i.e. blackout rules. I so hate blackout rules and wish the laws would change on that.

Especially when you live out of market, but a league uses 10 states claiming that is in market.

yeah this is the worst part. it really eliminates a big part of the GO aspect. When i am traveling and my team isn't being locally broadcast i want to be able to open up the app and watch my team.

I'd pay monthly just to occasionally watch Royals games. I had the Sling TV trial for a week after my son was born recently, and he would get really calm while watching baseball and then eventually drift off to sleep for a long time. Turns out baseball is great for dozing with infants in the recliner.

I didn't end up being very happy with Sling TV overall. The interface was a little clunky, the current and upcoming schedule took a long time to refresh, and sometimes content would get blacked out (I'm looking at you, KC Chiefs, and it was a preseason game of all things) which kind of defeats the purpose of having a streaming "cable" package. Their two package system makes it so you can't get Fox Sports with ESPN without stepping up to the really expensive package. You also can't get Disney and Nick Jr. without doing the same. I'd more seriously consider it if I could just build my own package for a lower price as I'm just interested in maybe 10 channels at the most. All that other fluff is just waste.

No I haven't. I'm not the biggest of sports fans and I haven't felt like putting any effort, even a little, into looking into that. But blackout rules still bug me when there is the off chance I want to watch my hockey team play and can't.

Blackouts are so freaking annoying. It's like "Why don't you want my money and/or advertising revenue you morons? No, I'm not driving 120 miles across the state to pay $40 to park and hundreds of dollars for a ticket to go to this game. I've got a newborn son and want to watch some damn sports!" And some VPNs are really shady with what they do with your data that they route through them. I have a hard time trusting it, especially when I signed up for some on a limited basis and their unsubscribe button in their email marketing won't opt me out and they keep spamming me daily. Had to set up some rules to block them. It's sad that the best way to watch sports online is often through shady website links posted on Reddit, where I have to close out of a billion popups and then when I finally get a standard-def stream going (that often buffers) then I have to send that signal over AirPlay from my MacBook Pro to the Apple TV. What a great experience!

Have you tried a VPN? A friend of mine uses one for MLB when he travels.

If a sporting event was on regular Fox can you still watch it with the fox sports go app?


Yes. Fox (local) sporting events are included.

Hi,

Is it really possible to log in with SlingTV? I tried on the Fox Sports GO website but the operator is not there...
