Fox Sports Go (FSGO) is the main over-the-top service of Fox Sports. It provides streams of the Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, Fox Soccer Plus and Fox Deportes cable channels, and selected events airing on the Fox television network and the Fox Sports regional networks. The service also offers exclusive live and archived digital content from the Big East Conference, National Lacrosse League, and the UEFA Champions League.

The service constitutes a website, as well as mobile apps for Android and iOS devices. A Windows 10 version of the app recently added support for Xbox One consoles using the Universal Windows Platform, expanding the service to connected televisions. The service is available for customers of select cable and satellite TV providers, as well as over-the-top services like FuboTV.
Super Bowl XLVIII was streamed for free through the Fox Sports Go app and website on personal computers and tablets, but not on mobile phones due to exclusive rights held by Verizon Wireless. The event averaged 1.7 million viewers on the platform.
For regional telecasts, NBA games are available, and Major League Baseball games from the Fox Sports regional networks became available starting with the 2016 season, after Fox Sports and MLB came to an agreement for in-market streaming rights in November 2015. Fox reached a similar deal for regional National Hockey League games beginning in the 2016–17 season.
Not all multichannel providers have agreement with FOX for MLB, NBA, & NHL games; the easiest way to tell is by simply using the app, you'll either get the games or not. A major exception is about to come to an end by "mid-February 2017", as Comcast finally signed a deal with FOX to let their subscribers have access to in-market live professional sports streaming on Fox Sports GO.
