fuboTV Tops 150,000 Viewers During The Super Bowl

Last October, fuboTV announced that they had topped 100,000 paid subscribers. Now it looks like they have continued to grow.

According to a memo from fuboTV CEO David Gandler about the success fuboTV had during the Super Bowl, he states that fuboTV had over 150,000 viewers of the game.

Although still lagging behind services such as DIRECTV NOW and Sling TV, which both have over 1 and 2 million subscribers each, this shows continued growth at fuboTV.

This was first reported by MultiChannel News, but Cord Cutters News has also obtained a copy of the memo and confirmed the numbers. How many subscribers fuboTV has is still hard to say, but we can confirm they have more than the 100,000 paid subscribers announced in October 2017

Live TV subscribers is now estimated anywhere from 4 to 6 million subscribers. Although still well short of the 20 to 25 million total cord cutters, live TV streaming services such as Sling TV, DIRECTV NOW, and now fuboTV have all been seeing strong continued growth.

The question has become when will live TV streaming overtake traditional pay-TV providers.

Update: We have clarified that the 150,000 number is for viewers, not subscribers.  This includes those who viewed Sunday’s game with either a paid subscription or via free trials.

    They’re up to $45 for an entry level package. At this point they’re better off offering DVR that is on par with Vue, Philo, or Youtube TV. They would see more rapid growth if they did. I highly doubt they can get ESPN at this point without going over $50, so they should find other ways to attract new customers.

    Unless you are a soccer fan, not much value. Good for them there are a lot

      They really don’t offer anything I can’t get on Vue except BeIN sports and they have no ESPN networks, so it is really not much better unless you are a La Liga or League 1 fan. Otherwise you give up USNT and MLS. I honestly do not know why 150,000 people subscribe the UI is awful and the channel lineup is no comparison to any of the other providers.

    I thought the channel line up sucked for that price—should be half that for what they are offering

    prior to $5 increase, had fubo/philo as the best package for price and channels i was looking for. it is/was the same price as psvue elite.

    My “must haves”…. amc, animal planet, fox news, nfl network

    The only “sports” channel that was a “must have” or (even wanted) was nfl network. Looks like i got in just in time to stay at the $40 price point.

    i ALSO, get discovery channels and even a local channel (that psvue decided strip my “slim package” and charge me for and not provide even one local).
