Recently, FuboTV has been making cord cutting news because of the exciting new content being added. If you’re not already familiar with the service, find out what everyone’s been talking about, below.
Once recognized only for streaming sports, FuboTV is quickly becoming serious competition for other big names in the cord cutting community. Since launching in 2015, the service has been quietly ramping up its content and building relationships with big names.
While FuboTV is expanding its content lineup, sports fans will be happy to know that sporting events are still a big focus for the service. As the brand continues to grow, more sports options are being added. That includes a new partnership with CBS and continued partnerships with Fox Sports, Univision, and BeIN Sports. Noticeably missing from the lineup is ESPN.
Sports programming is absolutely the highlight of a FuboTV subscription. In addition to the incredible soccer content that the service is known for, you’ll have access to football, basketball, baseball, and hockey. You’ll also be able to watch slightly less mainstream events, including rugby, track and field, and diving, among many others.
In addition, to live content streaming, the service offers a Lookback feature. Lookback offers on demand content, so if you miss a game, you’ll have the option of watching later. Content is available for 72 hours after originally airing.
Currently, you can watch FuboTV on the following devices:
Missing from the list are apps for gaming systems, including PlayStation and XBox.
You can watch TV simultaneously on two devices, whether you’re at home or on the go.
Packages and Pricing
FuboTV starts with a base package, called Fubo Premier, which starts at $34.99/month, after the 7 day free trial. The Premier package includes 66 channels, including Fox Sports, CBS Sports, BeIN Sports, Bravo, Lifetime, and HGTV. Find the full list of channels on the FuboTV website.
In addition to the basic package, you’ll have the option of add ons for additional content with an extra fee. The following add ons are currently offered:
- Portugese Plus
- Sports Plus
- Mundo Plus
- Fubo Latino
- The Blues
- Cycling Plus
- Kids Plus
As with most other streaming options, the service is monthly, with the option to cancel at any time without extra fees and charges.
In June, CBS announced an agreement with FuboTV, bringing the network’s content to the streaming service. Included in that agreement are the following:
- CBS Sports Network
- Showtime, including original shows and popular movies
- Entertainment TV, including The CW, Pop, and CBSN
- CBS News
This is big news, especially for sports fans. The agreement means that FuboTV will be streaming The NFL on CBS, Thursday Night Football, SEC on CBS, and the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship, among other sports programming.
Those subscribing to the basic Fubo package will also be able to watch their favorite CBS primetime shows like The Big Bang Theory, and major live events like The Grammy’s. Local affiliate channels are being added, with plans to continue adding more.
Another appreciated recent update was an improvement to the service’s DVR feature. Users can now use the program guide to find and record content to watch later. Unlike most DVR setups, FuboTV bases DVR storage on number of programs, rather than the amount of time taken up by each program. You’ll have ten slots to fill with recorded programs, meaning you can choose to record ten football games, ten sitcoms, or a combination of any ten shows. Recorded programming can be saved for up to ten days.
For those who love watching sports, FuboTV is an excellent option and will become even more valuable as more content is added. Others should keep an eye on the service as well, as FuboTV works toward becoming an even stronger competitor among digital content companies.
