    Currently only customers of U-Verse, Suddenlink, Xfinity, and 3 smaller companies have access to the app. I'm sure it likely won't happen until a new contract is signed, so do we know when that is coming up?

    I bet Charlie does post here. Scott didn't say no and I am sure he would know and even knows the screen name. Probably better off not knowing which one he posts under because people would bug him and would not get where he wants to with the posts.

    Like everything else Dish is being sued by FOX over autohop... I doubt that FOX would want to run sign up Dish for more of their services when they are suing them.

    I'd guess this has more to do with Dish and Direct refusing to sign new contracts for the Fox Sports rebranding, than the lawsuit. The streaming rights were probably included in the new, higher rate contract. But, until a new one is signed, it's not going to happen.

    So, uh, any update on this? DirecTV got Fox Sports Go back in January 2015, Dish seems to be the last major holdout. Can't find any info anywhere, and Dish's own customer service has no clue about it.

    Considering Dish's relationship with Fox, not likely to happen anytime soon. Just like DTV will not likely get PAC12 anytime soon, for the same reason.

    This along with the Football NFL package issue makes me a bit disturbed with Dish's claim to provide the same sports as Direct TV in advertisements.

    No Dish,
    You do not provide the same sports Direct TV has. If you did you would be able to provide access to the same apps and to all the Football games.
