Decent app, but not for Apple TV 3/5
By Karl Dreeves
The iPad and iPhone versions of this app work reasonably well, including when streaming to Chromecast.
The Apple TV app is another story. It drops so many frames that it is nauseating to watch a game. To be fair, it is new, so perhaps they will fix it with future updates. But I wouldn’t bother for now.
Airplay does not work well! 3/5
Airplay does not work well since new version!
Destroyed the experience just for money 1/5
By Soccer rigged af!
I used to watch it with my dad on Fox Deportes. The Spanish commentating and level of audience noise was so good that we used to get goosebumps. I tried watching it but realized they don’t broadcast it on Fox Deportes anymore. Turns out they’re hungry for money and make people pay now. Okay, worth the money, or so I thought. Tried to watch Lanus vs. River. Worst futbol experience. Commentator sounds like he is yawning. Spectator volume is horribly low. Sounds like you’re watching a replay of second division replay matches even though these games can be better than UEFA champions.
Content is great, technical execution is not 1/5
Been trying to watch games and stream to Apple TV has been a failure. I really wanted this to work but the app dies out mid game. As you can imagine, this has been frustrating. Originally got it for UEFA Champions League but now have to resort to other measures. Only good thing is that I was on a free trial so it didn’t cost me anything.
Terrible — nonfunctional 1/5
$140 gets you squat. Every time I try to log on and watch a match, the app screen comes up and that’s all I get. One time I actually watched a preview show of the Champions League games, but that was all I could get. It’s a big expensive tease.
terrible app 1/5
stream is interrupted all the time. airplay almost never works.
What a mess 1/5
Registration fails so I have to reset my password. Now at least I can login but every live stream I try to watch just goes back to; please start your trial! Worst app I have ever seen
THEY REFUSE TO STOP CHARGING ME!!! 1/5
After finally having enough of this service failing to provide any US matches, I informed them that I was done, but THEY REFUSE TO STOP CHARGING ME!!! Some @$%#! in tech support thinks it's funny, and refuses to pass my request on to accounting. I have written several requests, and every response is more belligerent than the first. My only recourse is to contact the credit card company to let them know that I have explicitly told them to stop charging. It was never worth more than maybe $2 per month, but even at that I would (attempt to) STOP using this service. There is a word for refusing to stop charging a customer: "theft."
Downloaded and activated my subscription and it won’t let me watch anything. Terrible app
Inconsistent app and very poor customer support 1/5
The app won't sign me in and I can't use it. Reached out to support three times and they are totally unresponsive.
Does not work on many Apple devices 1/5
Fox proudly announced their upgraded app this summer, that would have a better user interface and more features, and would play on all mobile iOS devices.
But it doesn't.
The most current iOS for an iPad mini is 9. And their app only works with iOS 10. So for $20/month, if you need to watch your soccer on a device that isn't running or can't ru. iOS 10, save your money.
I've contacted their support several times and they're pretty clueless.
Be careful. They will charge for year subscription even though you cancel within one week (not a free trial). Should be minus 5 stars! Not all that it's promised to be.
Waste of money 1/5
Charged me for a subscription cause I was going to try out free trial and doesn’t even let me log in paid $20 for no reason I don’t even use it doesn’t let me log in and now I can’t cancel my subscription
Terrible service 1/5
To log in is virtually impossible. The fact that there is no one to talk to, is another bad thing.
Poor for a paid service 1/5
Good content but poor execution especially since this is a paid service. Many other free content providers that execute much better. I don’t have this issues with Fox Sports Go.
- unable to connect with Airplay / AppleTV 80% of the time; or loses connection
- Video regularly stops or is interrupted
- hard to find content with redesign
- if it loses connection and you have to start over, you have to search and find your game and then remember where you were. There is no history or way to pick up where you left off
Signed up on website - no app access 1/5
By Doctor Jim in Dallas
I signed up on the website for access on my Mac, iPad and iPhone - the FAQ says can even watch on all three simultaneously with one plan. There is no way to watch on an iPhone without paying another annual fee. No place to enter user name and password.
Mostly pros, but one big con is audio - PLZ FIX!!! 2/5
Good selection of competitions, and the card based menu is not super-intuitive but clean enough.
Streaming has been very stable (ios chromecasting) but definitely not hd like espn.
Love the unadorned 'raw feed' matches from Bundesliga2, and access to the conmebol copas.
Chromecast control is *barely* there. Once you sling you can't see live stats or get back to whats streaming (or even stop casting). Its like the barest bones chrome add-on ive ever seen.
If they have Champions league magazine, why don't they have Europa league magazine too?
The audio quality is shockingly dismal for how decent the picture looks. Very faint and often garbled, or littered with compression artifacts. Espn, nbcsn, foxsportsgo fill my meager soundbar with thumping stadium sounds. I have to crank this up from two lights to six lights on the soundbar and it barely registers. What really comes across is popping and squeaking from (I think) bad compression on the announcer track.
Despite some other minor cons, if they could clean up the audio I would say this is a five star product.
It’s terrible 1/5
By FIFA Justin
I made a subscription and everything just to watch my team play and it told me the payment was successful but then when I would go to watch the game live it would take me through all the steps to set it up again and tell me I need to make a subscription even though I already had one. And every time I would choose a new subscription my phone would tell me it was successful but the app would tell me it was not, this app is terrible. I just wanted to watch some soccer yet Fox wants there money. This app should be free for anyone with a tv provider to use.
Uninspired Relaunch 1/5
The app was looking good for the first few weeks when it looked like it was going to get much more attention. However, the only measurable improvement has been the video quality with no signs of any other improvements coming soon. The interface is a hot mess where games are much harder to find than in the old version. Plus the price went up 40% from $99.99 to $139.99. Very hard to justify.
They have also been many technical issues of the app outlined below.
Airplay generally works but is sometimes prone to low frame rates and dropped video feeds. I hope the Apple TV app comes soon.
Starting games after they have already been live for a while is awesome for when I can’t make it home in time for the start. However, as soon as the live event ends, the feed for everyone watching gets turned off, no matter where in the game they are. This wouldn’t be a big issue if the on demand versions of the video were immediately available, but they aren’t. They take over 40 minutes to be posted and working. If you get cut off at the 60th minute, you will just have to check back periodically and wait.
I cannot fathom how a broadcasting company charging $139 a year can not figure out how to add a scoreboard and clock to the Champions League games. I have to use my phone to set a stopwatch in order to follow the game time. This also makes it impossible to scrub to a time in the game that already happened or to see the score of the game when you just tuned in.
Don’t bother. Unless no other soccer subscription service carries your team you are better off spending the money at a bar. At least Fox lost the rights to the CL after this year, maybe that will spell the end of this terrible app.
Didn't work first time on iPad 1/5
Trying to watch CL games and none of the games load. You would think Fox would have fixed this by now
20$ a month? 1/5
By Munkherdene Bayarsaikhan
Been using this app for over a year now. Half the time it doesn’t work from iPhone app. Only works from computer plus can’t cast to tv from iPhone app.
Apple TV streaming (sometimes) fails 2/5
(Original review) Tried streaming the Portugal-Mexico match so as to avoid listening to the awful announcer on FS1, but after a few minutes it lost the connection to Apple TV because the app couldn't find the stream any more. I feel the app has potential, but it needs to be at least as good as the last version, and right now it is not. One star.
(ETA) Had better success streaming a game from the beginning, vs. trying to join after the half. Still should work under all circumstances. I do like that this version lets my iPad go to sleep without stopping the stream. I have hope yet. Three stars.
Update 24 Sept 17: App still continues to stream when iPad sleeps, but when it wakes (i.e. at halftime) the app refreshes and doesn't seem aware it was doing anything. Have to force-quit app and start over. Two stars.
Needs Apple TV app ASAP 2/5
App works fine, yet there has to be an Apple TV version soon. Otherwise I'd like to see endless scroll of the games coming up and a separate section for rewatching games.
TERRIBLE plus IMPOSSIBLE TO CANCEL FREE TRIAL 1/5
Horrible playback, constant crashes and freezes. Wasted two hours trying to watch one match, couldn't even finish Tottenham vs Dortmund because of constant freezing.
On top of that, you have to email them to cancel your free trial, the cancellation better happen before I'm charged. Ridiculous considering its 130$, money going to Fox and Trump's cheerleaders.
Takes a couple days for customer service to respond. When it works it's great. But when it crashes you are out of luck!
Crash, crash, crash 1/5
Was unable to watch a full match without freeze or crash since app was renewed
Doesn't work 1/5
Trash app. Maybe the worst out there. Good luck getting in contact w their support people, bc they won't contact you back.
Terrible, not near the old fox Soccer2go 1/5
Seems this App had been sold to some company who has no idea what they are doing. All the functionality and ease of use of Fox Soccer2go is really gone!! Number of games on demand is minimal compared to the previous App. No stats tables. Some games don't play at all. I have complained multiple times to user support and still have not seen a good response yet, or a resolution to the technical issues. They really need to put a lot of work make it function right. Might as well go back to the old Fox Soccer2go and relaunch at a later date when te bugs are fixed!!
Used to be 1/5
App doesn't work properly anymore, match stops after 3 secs or doesn't have sound. Can't see results. Used to be great
App hangs during champions league replays 1/5
As another reviewer mentioned, the stream freezes almost immediately on all of my internet connections and iOS devices. The matches that don't load real-time stats work fine (like Bundesliga 2). Fox tech support not responsive.
It stream hangs after like 30 secs 1/5
Not able to stream on my apple iPhone or ipad. The stream hangs after like 30 secs
Same old poor quality 1/5
Had a subscription with this a couple years ago (still bs that you need a subscription for the app when you have it on cable!!) and always had pixelation and poor quality video. Just gave it another shot for a free trial and had no sound for the first half of the game, and did I mention that you still need a subscription even though you pay for it on cable?! Video randomly stops and gives an error that video is unavailable in your area even though it is available. It's insane the price these guys want for such crap quality.
Sound is not working 2/5
On my iPad the video plays but the sound does not work. My headphones work - they can play from the Music app, but this app doesn't work
This used to be a great app 1/5
By Mac Ravat
They have completely destroyed this app. You could see right away matches coming up and results from different european leagues with standings. No more. This app needs to be returned to its former format or I will cancel when my subscription runs out.
Cool looking but also sacrifices functionality 3/5
Well their designer tried to make this app look modern and all.
Problem is things are harder to find. There is no master list of what games are available to watch on demand by date. Now I have to pick a league or tournament I think.
Further I start a stream and it's in Spanish and I see no way to get the English version.
Navigation looks better but now require far more work due to using so much real estate.
After more use I will give them props for having a very stellar timeline for each game. That could not have been easy. I still wish you could just get a list view to find stuff faster with less fluff.
Video performance is mostly solid but sometimes like the Man U vs Real Madrid game tonight just won't stream. Haven't had the Spanish problem since so that is good.
Great App 5/5
Amazing new design and features.
Love the overall experience.
Very Disappointing 1/5
The app is horrid. Latest and greatest iPhone and iOS. App does not work. Constantly asking for log in details. Stream is slow... quality of stream is not that great. If they get this app and the service right it will be a gem..
Absolutely Useless 1/5
Fox Soccer2Go was phenomenal. It actually allowed you to track fixtures and tables from every league/cup without being a pain to simply navigate. This new app is a complete waste of storage space - honestly can someone tell me what the point of the app is at this point? Aside from tracking garbage CONCACAF matches, there doesn't seem to be one. Please, PLEASE bring back the old app. There isn't a single decent app for tracking matches anymore.
Bring Back The Old App 1/5
Almost useless now. Was my complete guide to the leagues I follow as well as international play. Had it all in one app, now I need like 10 (not an exaggeration). Probably going to delete this app as it now serves no purpose. Fox Soccer to Go will be severely missed.
Never works, asks for user and pass then just loops back to "watch live" or "start from beginning". Click one of those and it asks for user and pass again and just stays in that loop. No matter what game you're trying to view, live or older....always the same crap. Delete and reinstall, same issue. Maybe it's just iPhone 7's??? Don't waste your money.
They control access to many games, so do not care about delivering quality APP 1/5
I've paid the yearly $120 for full access But new 'fox match' DOES NOT WORK AT ALL WITH iPAD RETINA (3gen).... My money is wasted!!!!! I cant watch any games now that 'match' app update date happened. ZERO VALUE for my money.
....such a a shame....this should not be a hard app to get right....simple features, simple content, paying usrers.... I hope a competitor teaches these guys not to take customers for granted.
Update is Awful 1/5
Took away all the content of scores, tables, and schedules for all the matches. Not sure what point it serves now. Sad.
Not working 1/5
It was working when it wasn't updated now it's trash, bring back fox soccer 2go
Horrible update 1/5
By Gunnr n Ga
Go to check scores on International Friendlies and all of that content is gone.
What used to be my "go-to" football app is now completely useless. No fixtures, results or tables for any of the European leagues.
Another reviewer wanted to give zero stars. I want to give negative stars.
By Chad M Cooper
This app is the best. I get to watch rugby league live. Super League and NRL. And they are doing to have the 2017 Rugby League World Cup on it. The quality is great. I watch soccer too. The only negative is you can only watch replays for 7 days. I paid yearly subscription. Incredible investment.
Get it together 1/5
Have spent 30 minutes carefully setting and resetting and resetting again the username and passwords to get this to work. keep spinning down a vortex of frustration as the password works fine at website but not app. Get your stuff together fox
Far from great 1/5
If I could give zero stars I would. I love this app before the update. But now after the update I cannot see scores lineups for anything as I watch a game it's ridiculous. I can't even look up scores of previous matches. Terrible update
By Tony Supreme
This was such a great app. Easy to explore the schedules, standings and results of all the leagues. You can even do that anymore. Why?! I'm deleting it now since it's just a waste of space
New app is good . . . But lacking a little 3/5
By Sarah Witt
Fox-- please add commentary to the Gold Cup matches. Hoping that will be fixed by this afternoon.
Like the navigation, like the interface. Very slick.
