More networks have started to provide live streaming of major sports programs. As part of a special preview showcasing the app and its content, Fox Sports Go will live stream the Super Bowl XLVII to all users on Feb 2. The preview will allow users to access content on Fox Sports Go from 12 am on Feb 2 till 3 am on Feb 3. Outside the preview window, only subs of participating TV ops can access the content.
The app will feature two separate live streams of Super Bowl XLVIII: the customary FOX Sports telecast in English and the FOX Deportes telecast in Spanish. It will be the first time that Fox Deportes televises and streams the Super Bowl in Spanish in the US. “We’re giving all fans the ability to watch the biggest game of the year wherever they go,” said Eric Shanks, President and COO, FOX Sports. “We’re also making the mobile experience more user friendly by streaming the game through FOX Sports GO and adding the FOX Deportes stream for our Spanish-speaking audience.”
The live stream of the game will be available on iPads through the app and on desktops. Due to league restrictions, NFL games aren’t available on phones.
