What is fuboTV?
fuboTV (R) is an live TV streaming service that delivers live television and on-demand content through your internet connection to devices such as computers, tablets, smartphones, or streaming devices. It requires no installation, there are no extra fees, and you can cancel anytime. The service has made considerable improvements to channel offerings and the quality of their streams and now challenges all other services for the title of the best streaming platform.
This live TV streaming service launched in 2015 and was primarily targeted towards soccer fans but it has evolved tremendously over the years justifying its higher-end price point. The company no longer offers Fox Regional Sports Networks and dropped Turner media channels (CNN, TNT, TBS, etc.) but they have added Disney-owned channels such as ABC and ESPN. Also dropped from the channel line-up are the A&E Networks.
fuboTV is not just for live sports fans. In addition to getting access to a wide range of US and international sporting events in 4K (130+ events), subscribers also get access to popular channels such as AMC, beIN Sports, CBS Sports Network, FXX, SYFY, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, and much more. Another great thing about this live television streaming service is in most markets you get all four major broadcast networks: ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC. Base packages start at 107 channels making it one of the most well-rounded channel line-ups currently on the market.
The service has one of the best cloud-based DVR storage compared to other major streaming TV platforms. fuboTV offers 250 hours of Cloud DVR storage for the base plan and 1,000 hours of space for the Elite plan. They now also offer limited 4K streaming making it the only major streaming platform to do so. There are over 130 events in 4K. Users will also get up to 10 simultaneous streams for the entire family to enjoy. fuboTV also has the best stream quality in our opinion.
fuboTV Streaming TV Packages
fuboTV has seen its streaming plans change over the years which may frustrate some; however, the company has always gone a tremendous job adjusting and adapting to the ever-changing world that is cord-cutting. Currently, fuboTV offers four different streaming plans: Starter, Pro, Elite, and Latino Quarterly. It also has an extensive offering of add-ons which we will cover later in this review.

If you’ve tried fuboTV before and found the interface clunky and hard on the eyes you will be very surprised to see the updates they’ve recently made. Gone is the dark blue color scheme which has been replaced with a black, grey, orange, and white color scheme that is much more aesthetically pleasing.
Depending upon your streaming device the interface will be slightly different; however, they all contain the same main features. fuboTV’s interface is fairly clean and well-organized. The interface is organized into five main sections that are found on the top menu: Sports, Series, Movies, Channels, and Recordings.
In the sports section, you will find a calendar of the current day’s events that contains information about dates, teams, channels and there is even a button to easily record to your cloud DVR. You are also able to sort by sport type on a top submenu or on a drop-down menu.
Additionally, in the shows section, you will find a sliding carousel of popular primetime tv shows airing for that particular day. Users will also be pleased to find that fuboTV organizes TV shows into several logical categories as well such as live, popular, and upcoming TV shows. This is also where you will find one of fuboTV’s best features, their on-demand TV show category.
The movies section is also laid out in the same template as the TV shows category. Here you can find live, popular, and on-demand movies.
In the guide section, you will find a traditional TV-style guide. The interface contains images of the channel logos and the program being aired. fuboTV’s guide sorts each program by channel and by the time it is airing. You can also sort by what’s on TV next and you can jump to what is airing tonight or tomorrow night during primetime hours.
fuboTV Review Conclusion
This service is for you if you want all of the sports you can desire but also want a great mix of entertainment channels such as AMC, Comedy Central, MTV, and others. One of the biggest drawbacks was the absence of ABC and ESPN; however, those are now part of the fuboTV line-up. But now one of the biggest drawbacks is the absence of Fox Regional Sports Networks but you can only get those on AT&T TV currently. You can purchase several add-on packages for sports, entertainment, and premium channels including international packages for French, Latino, and Portuguese languages. fuboTV is still one of the best live TV streaming services for sports channels.
The price is definitely on the higher end of the scale but the per-channel price is one of the best. fuboTV’s interface is clean, intuitive, and easy to use. Subscribers one of the best cloud-based DVR storage capacities (Up to 1000 hours on the Elite plan). Up to 10 simultaneous streams also puts it towards the top.
All in all, we think fuboTV is one of the best, if not the best, live TV streaming services currently available. We recommend you try out the service with their free trial and you may want to give this service a second look even if you’ve tried it in the past. We definitely think fuboTV can hang with other popular streaming services such as Sling TV, Hulu Live TV, and YouTube TV.
