What’s new in version 3.20.0
- * 4K live streaming is here! Watch NFL, MLB, MLS, college football games and more in 4K UHD when available, including the Superbowl.
Important Note: You need the Fox Sports app, not the Fox Sports Go app. The Fox Sports app streams content from Fox, FS1, BTN, etc. The Fox Sports Go app is the streaming app for Fox Regional Sports Networks that are now owned by Sinclair. Also remember not all programs and games on FS1, FOX, and BTN air in 4K.
