Great Channel Lineup

FuboTV has one of the best channel lineups in live TV streaming, especially for sports. Other live TV options fill their channel lineups with fluff and still don’t have as many channels as Fubo does. FuboTV channels are sports focused, but don’t only include sports. In addition to top sports, news, and entertainment networks, FuboTV channels also include several beIN Sports channels, the Olympic Channel, regional sports networks, Comedy Central, NBC’s Golf Channel, Cartoon Network, and even Nat Geo Wild (a sister-channel of National Geographic). For a full channel list, visit the FuboTV website.

Sports Streaming

As mentioned above, Fubo has an incredible lineup of sports networks. Fubo covers the NBA, NHL, MLB, NFL, other sports like golf and tennis, college sports, and regional sports. The zip code associated with your account determines with regional sports channels you have access to. These travel with you when you’re away from home. If you’d like a greater coverage of sports channels, you can add an add-on sports pack like the NBA League Pass.

Fubo launched in 2015 primarily as an international soccer network. Because of this, Fubo’s standard package includes eight beIN Sports channels. It has since expanded its network to include dozens of other sports and entertainment channels.

Bundles and Add-Ons

Fubo’s classic base package costs $55 dollars per month and includes 90 channels, 30 hours of cloud DVR space, and allows for two concurrent streams (two screens viewing at once). To personalize your plan and get exactly what you want, FuboTV offers over a dozen add-ons that cost between $6 to $29 per month. These can be added to the standard plan or to a bundle plan. These add-ons include the following:

  • Cloud DVR Plus $10 — allows you to save up to 500 hours of recorded content for as long as you like. Without this add-on you are limited to 30 hours of DVR content.
  • Family Share $6 — adds one more concurrent stream. With this add-on you can stream from three screens at once instead of two.
  • Fubo Cycling $12 — includes seven cycling related channels like Rai Italia, GOLTV, and Eleven Sports.
  • Fubo Extra $6 — adds 30 channels to your plan, raising the total to 120 channels. These extra channels include things like more home channels, kids channels, world news, and other entertainment channels.
  • International Sports Plus $6 — adds five international sports channels, all of which are also included in the Fubo Cycling add-on (so don’t buy both).
  • Sports Plus $9 — adds 23 sports channels including NBC Universo, college sports, and Red Zone.
  • Adventure Plus $5 — adds five outdoor and nature channels.
  • Showtime $11 — adds nine Showtime channels.
  • AMC Premiere $5 — adds AMC Premiere.
  • FX Plus $6 — adds FX Plus (ad free).
  • NBA League Pass $29 — adds 30 channels, one for each NBA team.
  • Latino Plus $8 — adds 13 Spanish news, entertainment, and sports channels (including Fox Deportes).
  • Rai Italia $8 — adds Rai Italia (which is also included in the Fubo Cycling add-on, so don’t buy both.)
  • Portuguese Plus $15 — adds three Portuguese channels.

Fubo TV also offers several bundle plans. These are the standard Fubo channels with add-ons pre-selected. These bundling plans will cost you 15 percent (about $10) less each month than it would cost you to add the same add-ons to a standard plan. FuboTV currently offers the following bundle plan options:

  • Fubo Standard $55
  • Family $60 — adds Cloud DVR Plus and one extra screen to stream at once (upping the total to three).
  • Family Deluxe $65 — includes everything from the Family plan, but also adds 30 Fubo Extra entertainment channels.
  • Premium $75 — includes everything from the Family Deluxe plan, but adds nine showtime channels with on demand.

Compatible Devices

It shouldn’t be difficult for you to find a device to use to stream FuboTV. You can watch Fubo on the following devices:

  • Amazon Fire TV
  • Android Mobile
  • Android TV (Android OS 5.0 or higher)
  • Apple TV
  • Online web browser (like Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Safari)
  • Chromecast
  • iPhone/iPad (through iOS app)
  • Roku (limited functionality for older versions)
  • Samsung Smart TV (Currently in BETA)

The Bad

  • Limited DVR
  • No ESPN
  • More Expensive

Limited DVR

Fubo’s basic plan only includes 30 hours of free cloud DVR saving. Other live TV services allow much more DVR space included in the base price. However, you can upgrade to a cap of 500 hours of DVR for an add-on of $10 per month. This add-on is included in the higher tier plans.

No ESPN

Though FuboTV is incredibly sports based, it doesn’t include any access to ESPN. This is likely because ESPN offers its own streaming service of the channel for $5 per month. This is called ESPN+.

More Expensive

Fubo is more expensive than other streaming platforms. With a higher tier Fubo package and a couple of add-ons, you’re looking at a similar price to a monthly cable subscription, but without any local channels. Comparable live TV streaming platforms cost less than $50 for everything. However, these other services have fewer options to watch live sports. You can watch FuboTV free for a seven-day trial period.

The Bottom Line

If you’re a sports fan, a FuboTV subscription is perfect for you. It has almost every sports network you could want, besides ESPN. Fubo is a great option to watch your favorite teams live, without having to pay a full cable bill. However, if you’re not a sports fan, other streaming options provide more entertainment and on-demand channels for a fraction of the FuboTV price.

Signed up for the 7 day trial and it gave me access to the games I wanted to watch and that were not available in another way. The price is great and they have a bigger selection of shows and content than I expected.
