FuboTV doesn’t have the name recognition of other streaming bundles, but it’s been quietly building up a service to take on the likes of Dish’s Sling TV, AT&T’s DirecTV Now, and Sony’s PlayStation Vue.
Although FuboTV originally launched in 2015 as a streaming service for soccer fans, it later pivoted to a broader mix of streaming cable channels, and has been flying under the radar as a public beta for most of this year. Over the past couple weeks, though, the company has made lots of noise, announcing plans to add channels from CBS and Scripps Networks, and closing a $55 million investment round.
If you’re planning to cut the cord and haven’t considered FuboTV, now might be the time to give it a look. Here’s everything you need to know:
FuboTV channels at a glance
FuboTV’s Premier package currently costs $35 per month, but that rate that will eventually rise to $50 per month for new subscribers. (It’s unclear when the price will go up, though existing subscribers will get to keep the old price.) The plan places a heavy emphasis on sports, with regional coverage from Fox Sports and Comcast SportsNet, along with national sports channels such as Fox Soccer Plus, Golf Channel, beIN Sports, and NBA TV. FuboTV also includes a mix of general entertainment channels in its main plan, and it sells some add-on packages that largely consist of Spanish-language channels.
There are, however, a few major omissions for sports fans: Disney isn’t on board with FuboTV, which means no ESPN channels or ABC broadcasts, and there are no Turner networks such as TNT and TBS, which provide lots of NBA coverage. Fubo also lacks the NFL Network. On the entertainment side, Fubo doesn’t include AMC Networks, Discovery Networks, Viacom, or Turner channels.
