Last week it was reported that fuboTV was coming to the Apple TV app. Now, fuboTV has officially announced they are now a supported provider for the Apple TV app. fuboTV joins PlayStation Vue as the only two live TV streaming services that support the Apple TV app. Now you can log in to fuboTV through the Apple TV app to access fuboTV content through the Apple TV app.
“fuboTV is a leading provider of live sports programming, entertainment and news. We’re hyper-focused on delivering the best, most innovative viewing experiences possible as our recent 4K HDR Beta streams demonstrate. That’s why we’re excited about the fuboTV integration with the Apple TV app. It’ll allow Apple users to discover that their favorite leagues and matchups are on fuboTV and with the ‘Up Next’ feature, they’ll never miss what’s on. fuboTV subscribers can also find over 10,000 on-demand shows and movies directly in the app.” Said Min Kim, vice president of business development, fuboTV.
fuboTV also added Siri support soon allowing subscribers can now simply ask Siri to quickly search for their favorite fuboTV content. fuboTV also said they will add more content to the app in the coming weeks including support for regional sports networks. Soon you will also be able to use fuboTV with Apple’s single sign-on feature.
This was first spotted over on r/CordCutters on Reddit. Now when you search for movies and TV shows if fuboTV offers it you will be able to launch directly into that movie or TV show from the Apple TV app. Currently, the only other streaming service to do this is PlayStation Vue. (Hulu’s on-demand service from our understanding also does this but not their live TV service. Has this changed? Leave us a comment and let us know.)
Update: Siri support is now available.
