Today fuboTV gave us a look at their internal numbers from the 2nd quarter of 2019. According to fuboTV, they saw a nearly 200% jump in streaming in the 2nd quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. In total fuboTV subscribers watched over three billion minutes of programming in the 2nd quarter of 2019.
fuboTV subscribers really enjoyed their entertainment programming as it accounted for 42% of content watched in June, which doubled from 20% in June 2018. Entertainment was followed by sports (38%) and news/talk (20%, which nearly doubled from 12% YoY). In the past year, fuboTV has added networks from Turner and Viacom among others. Additional Discovery channels were recently announced and will be added shortly.
“With our subscribers watching over three billion minutes of programming last quarter, fuboTV’s expanded content offering and our industry-leading commitment to a premium viewing experience has clearly resonated with consumers,” said David Gandler, co-founder and CEO, fuboTV. “This is great news not only for fuboTV but also for the virtual MVPDs industry as a whole. Cord cutters have clearly found a better alternative to cable TV.”
