Watching your favorite shows can be more fun when you can share the excitement with your friends anytime, anywhere. This is the hallmark of live streaming, where TV confinement is nothing but a thing of the past.

This time, another network has embarked on the idea of having matches broadcasted through the internet, in whatever device supports the platform.

Fox Sports released an official media statement which introduces another streaming software.

"FOX Sports GO, the app that provides live streaming video of FOX Sports content at home or on-the-go, is scheduled to live stream 97 regular-season 'NFL on FOX' games, along with four NFC playoff games."

Now this could be very exciting news for all NFL fans who can ultimately ogle on over 100 games online.

FOX Sports' maneuver is following the trend. The network has streamed NFL games during last season's playoffs. It takes pride over Seattle Seahawks' victory in Super Bowl XLVIII, defeating the Denver Broncos 43-8.

The live stream was watched by an average audience of 528,000 viewers per minute, and was known to be the most-viewed live stream at the time for a single sports event in the U.S.

FOX Sports GO joins other already existing apps serving the same purpose.

TechCrunch cited DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket service, which has let viewers stream out-of-market games over the last several years, after acquiring the appropriate rights. The source likewise recalls ESPN and its WatchESPN app that made online Monday Night Football games available.

The streaming of the last three Super Bowls via NBC Sports, CBS, and Fox Sports has been noted, perhaps giving the latter hope to venture some more into streaming.

But TechCrunch discloses that authentication is needed to enable a viewer get access. The process will include signing in with one's cable or satellite provider. This ascertains payment of subscribers.

Another thing to note is that although the network shall stream 101 games, only "in-market" games will be accessible to viewers.

FOX Sports also announced:

"Coverage on FOX Sports GO will begin each week with FOX NFL SUNDAY (12:00-1:00 PM ET/9:00-10:00 AM PT), America's most-watched pregame show for 20 straight seasons. FOX Sports GO will also live stream postseason games, including an NFC Wild Card Game on Sunday, Jan. 4, the NFC Divisional Playoffs on Saturday, Jan. 10 and Sunday, Jan. 11, and the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 19".

The network specifies that NFL games won't available through FOX Sports GO on mobile phones due to "legal restrictions."

FOX Sports GO is available on the App Store, Google Play, Kindle Fire, and Windows Store. PC viewers can watch games on the official site.
