Fubo

Taking a Look at The New & Improved fuboTV


Recently fuboTV has been making some changes, both big and small, to create a better viewing experience for subscribers. Here’s what you’ll find when you log in.

More Content

fuboTV has been hard at work, building their list of affiliate networks and aiming to be the top source of sports content for cord cutters. By partnering with fuboTV, the networks are showing that they recognize the need for streaming services and are making an effort to give fans access to their favorite teams.

Recently, the service has added regional sports networks including NESN, home of the Boston Red Sox and Bruins, and MSG, for the Islanders, Knicks, and Rangers. More live, local feeds from Fox and CBS have also been added recently.

Re-Designed Roku & Apple TV App

If you’re using fuboTV on a Roku & Apple TV devices, you’ll notice a more user-friendly design. Now, you’ll choose from three options for watching content.

  • Sports – Find live and upcoming sporting events
  • Channels – A full guide with all available channels
  • My Videos – A section for the service’s Cloud DVR

The updated menu makes it easy to see what major sporting events will be coming up, so you can watch live or record them for later.

Cloud DVR

No time to watch a game live? Not a problem. fuboTV offers Cloud DVR storage to all users. Previously, users had 10 slots to fill. Each slot could be filled with one individual TV show, movie, or sporting event, and that content could be saved for up to ten days. The new DVR setup looks much different.

The new basic storage option includes 30 hours of storage space and is included with every subscription plan at no additional charge. Content stored on the DVR can be saved indefinitely, as long as the 30 hour limit isn’t reached and as long as you remain a subscriber

Those in need of more space can upgrade to the Advanced DVR plan, with 500 additional hours of content storage. The cost of the extra cloud storage is $9.99/month.

The Cloud DVR allows you to record on any connected device and view the content on any connected device. For example, you can record a football game on the app on a mobile device while you’re on the go and watch later with the Roku app on your TV.

Additional Features

Aside from these big changes, fuboTV has also made some seemingly minor changes that could make a big difference in viewing quality. Here are a few of things you can now do within the fuboTV app. Included in the update is the ability to pause and rewind during a live stream. The quick search feature has also gotten an update, making it easier to search for TV shows and movies by title.

Clearly, the changes are making a difference for fuboTV. The service reached the 100,000 subscriber mark in October, with no signs of slowing down.

    Fubo is pretty good. I have it on the Shield and the app is the older one so I am not getting the newer features yet. Also it has issues I think with it retaining the password. Not to keep piling on but the pricing is getting a little high. At that rate I could keep cable. On the whole it’s got good programming however.

    The DVR leaves a lot to be desired. One can. Only record what one can see in the guide and that only shows the next couple of hours.

    I just tried Fubo for a month. All the sports stations I watch are available there. But no local channels(ABC,NBC,CBS,FOX) yet? The DVR works great, but I want to be able to record the big 4 networks programming. Pricing doesn’t help me to be a cord cutter yet. Almost equal what I’m paying for cable with less to offer. Get the locals, and Fubo would be a great alternative.

    I think Fubo has the best Roku app between the ones that I have used (Sling, Playstation Vue, Hulu) Being a soccer nut, I love that beIN sports connect is additional channels and not a separate app. I love how they list live games and upcoming games in the main page, you do not have to go looking for the game you want to watch, it is listed. These are great features. But the biggest problem is that they still do not have any of the espn channels and major failure during the world cup qualifying. I do get one local channel with Fubo but I really not that concern with local since I get all of them OTA. I have been with Fubo for three months but plan to drop them at the end of this cycle mostly due to not having espn. I have playstation vue $55 and sling world $10. If Fubo adds espn, I would drop playstaion vue but would keep sling world for their cricket channel. Adding all the channels that I would like to sling cost a lot more with them.

    Sling Blue + cloud recording + Sports package is cheaper ($40) and you get Red Zone, TBS, TNT, and NHL Network included.
