After the Disney sale, the Fox Sports app splits into two different apps

By Sports app

Football fans watching a matchIn the past, Fox Sports and the Fox Sports Go apps offered the same content to you from FS1 and Fox Regional Sports Networks. Now that Disney and soon Sinclair own the Fox Regional Sports Networks, two Fox Sports applications have been created.

The Fox Sports app now includes content from places like FS1 and BTN. The Fox Sports Go app now includes content from the Fox Regional Sports Network. (Although the description still lists the Fox Sports Go app as including FS1 and BTN.)

This probably means that soon, if not already on your favorite devices, you will no longer be able to access FS1 content next to your Fox Regional Sports Network. Now Fox Sports Go app has local RSN content and Fox Sports app has FS1 content etc. according to some of our readers. From what we can tell, Fox is slowly rolling out this new app to devices like the Apple TV.

Sinclair has not indicated what they will do with the Fox RSN names once they shut them down. Although it is very likely that they will change their name very soon. This division of the two apps into Fox Sports Go and Fox Sports is likely only temporary until the full rebranding occurs. First, Sinclair must close its more than $ 10 billion deal to buy the Fox RSN networks.
