About a week after it was dropped from the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick appstore, FOX Sports GO has now restored compatibility with Fire TV devices. The nature of universal apps that run on multiple platforms, from smartphones, to tablets, to TVs, seems to be the cause. FOX updated their app for phones and tablets and either forgot to include Fire TV compatibility or chose to omit it in order to get their updated app out to phones and tablets quicker. The loss of Fire TV compatibility came right as the Women’s Soccer World Cup was kicking off; an event which FOX holds exclusive rights to broadcast in the US. This misstep caused fans relying on a Fire TV device to watch the Women’s World Cup to miss the first 12 matches, including the United State’s first game.
