FuboTV 5

fuboTV Hits 100K Subscribers


Today fuboTV the live TV streaming service announced that they have passed 100,000 subscribers in a release sent to Cord Cutters News.

fuboTV first launched as a streaming service to bring the world of soccer to Americans it relaunched this year as a live TV streaming service offering 65 plus channels. Over the last few months, fuboTV has been busy adding new channels including channels from CBS Corporation (CBS, CBS Sports Network, Pop and CBSN), MSG Networks (MSG and MSG+) and Scripps Networks Interactive (HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel) as well as NFL Network, Pac-12 Network, FUSION TV, and several new local CBS and FOX affiliates.  fuboTV’s “Sports Plus” add-on package added NFL RedZone and several regional FOX College Sports and Pac-12 Network channels.

“We are pleased to have surpassed the symbolic 100,000-subscriber milestone so quickly – following investments in national and regional sports networks, and the infrastructure to support this expanded array of premium content,” said fuboTV Co-Founder and CEO David Gandler.  “Given macro tailwinds driven by a fundamental change in consumer behavior, we anticipate the next 100,000 subscribers to join fuboTV at an accelerating pace.”

Offical numbers for live TV streaming services are often hard to come by. Last we heard DIRECTV NOW was at about 500,000 and PlayStation Vue was at about 400,000. These numbers are a few months old but this would make fuboTV a serious contender in the world of live TV streaming.

    No way, maybe they’re counting all the people that signed up for the free one week trials to watch a game or 2! Lol

      It’s the only way to get all 10 beIN feeds.

        the beIN feeds give you access to the version of NFL Ticket but for Soccer on the weekends!

    After my promotional period ends I’ll be dropping them. Way too expensive for what you get. I guess if you’re into soccer it’s OK but I only have it for NFL Network and RedZone.

    For the second time in a week, their service is down and can’t watch the world cup qualification games. Works ok for weekend games, but otherwise they can’t handle the traffic. Reminds me of Slingtv at the beginning.

      I think it is safe to say they no longer have 100k after the break down during the WCQ games.
      But the problem is they are the only ones with beIN Sports Connect and the games I wanted to watch was on the connect channels.

    FuboTV laid a gigantic egg this Tuesday. For how much they promise and charge, Tuesday night was a huge FAIL. Apologizing to subscribers on Twitter does nothing. If FuboTV is sorry for Tuesday night, they would have refunded the subscription for that month. Sub cancelled and never again! Thanks for nothing FuboTV.
