By the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl, the New England Patriots had made a stunning comeback and were trailing the Atlanta Falcons by just one touchdown.
But it was a moment people watching on Fox’s app couldn’t witness.
The app froze during the pivotal part of the game, prompting outrage on social media.

Many resorted to watching the Spanish version of the app’s livestream, which was working.
Alright for the Fox Sports Go app in Spanish coming in clutch ????????

A few minutes later, the app seemed to be up and running.
