    The FoxSportsGo app is the worst one for authentication: it has to be done daily.

    And the "live" streams aren't. They have a minimum 30s delay. Much better to watch OTA if possible.
    I agree.  If the Super Bowl is important to you, you won't rely on Fox Sports Go.  I tried watching Cincinnati Reds' games with it last summer and never managed to actually watch a single game, though I tried numerous times.  Authentication didn't work right and I never got more than 30 minutes into a game before I'd get a message saying that technical difficulties prevented continuing with the streaming, please try another time.
    The app is working fine for me. Better picture than OTA, which is my alternative.

    We used this and quality of the picture and audio was phenomenal via the app, way better than our local cable HD feed.  However, for the entire first half there were no ads whatsoever just a Fox logo for five minutes each break.  Then after half time the feed totally went down for a few minutes.  When it came back all the ads were shown in every break.  I have to think someone discovered they had the set up wrong and fixed it.  I wonder if Fox is paying out refunds to advertisers for the first half and if the person responsible for the screw up got the bill?  ;)

    That must be a localized error. I got all the ads through the whole game. And there were a few local ads sprinkled in, their feed was clearly tailored for local markets.

    The picture was better than my local OTA broadcast.

    Very pleased, hopefully this will be the new normal. Whoever broadcasts the Super Bowl will stream it via their app.

    I'd be even happier when the NFL can offer a streaming package like the rest of the major American sports.
