Fox Soccer Channel has released a new version of its Fox Soccer iPhone App. Version 1.1 of its Fox Soccer iPhone App now allows those who have access to the FoxSoccer.tv broadband subscription to view live games and watch video highlights on the mobile phone. Previously, FoxSoccer.tv subscribers had to pay $7.99/month for a Fox Soccer iPhone App subscription in addition to their $15/month subscription to FoxSoccer.tv.
The news will come as welcome relief for many soccer fans in the United States who were upset at Fox Soccer Channel for charging FoxSoccer.tv customers an additional fee to use the FoxSoccer.tv app which streams live the Premier League and Champions League games shown on FoxSoccer.tv. Forty nine percent of the people voted for the app on iTunes rated it one star out of five, and it’s clear by browsing through the comments to see how the price issue was so instrumental in the poor ratings. Now, with FoxSoccer.tv customers able to access live streaming of matches on the iPhone app, it significantly increases the value of the $15/month subscription.
To access the Fox Soccer iPhone App, download it from iTunes and if you’re a FoxSoccer.tv subscriber, you can log in using your username and password.
The Fox Soccer iPhone App is still available at $7.99/month for those who don’t have a FoxSoccer.tv subscription.
