This is Thomas Cluck saying so long! Fourth quarter from Michigan Stadium coming up next. The Iowa Hawkeyes will receive the ball first to start the next half. Michigan will get the ball first.
The streaming is quite good, particularly like the 4K coverage of the World Cup fames. However, this is the third day in a row, either device, where it asks me to sign in with my TV provider despite having signed in the day before. Is this intentional and if so, why?! Another curious, repeat experience on the AppleTV version The wheel just keeps spinning indefinitely or at least seemingly so as my patience wears out.
I can select the restart option and watch the game from the beginning but not just join a game in progress. Works fine on the Roku version.
Rebooted the AppleTV. Signed out and back in.
No luck. Please visit our help center at the following link where you can reach out to one of our live chat agents for more assistance. Whereas even the most unstable sports apps typically make it through several seconds of a game at a time, typically quitting immediately before a crucially pivotal play, the brainiacs here at Fox Sports have opted to skip out on the whole sports thing entirely.
Instead, they have developed a killer app that replays an endless stream of the same two commercials without ever showing any sports coverage.
While CBS decided to start charging for their clunker of an app to convince those duped into paying that their product was actually worth something, Fox has gone in a different direction entirely. Those intrepid fans who survive the initial stability issues with the TV provider login are rewarded in due course with an uninterrupted stream of the same two commercials repeating endlessly into eternity.
No longer need they fear the dropped stream just before the game-winning walk-off RBI, or a long fieldgoal attempt to take the lead as time expires. My applause for the creativity and vision that went into this.
One star for not charging us. Unfortunately, Fox has failed to fix the problem associated with casting the live sportscast to a connected TV.
Unlike many other streaming apps, Fox does not have the capability to cast your live broadcast to a television for ease of watching. Come on, Fox. Please just make one simple change and make it possible to watch your broadcasts that can be accessed on my phone and to allow it be cast onto a television.
UPDATE: after a couple of months of writing my initial post, the app still does not have the capability to cast. Fox, please fix your app so I can finally watch games on my cell phone without having to go through such an excessive and unnecessary struggle with your product.
