fuboTV Review

fuboTV is an online streaming video service. fuboTV is a no-contract 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 offers and the quality of their streams and now challenges all other services for the title of the best streaming platform.

fuboTV is the top choice for cord-cutters looking for the most access to sports programming and is now one of the best for entertainment channels too. It is important to note that fuboTV does not carry ESPN or ABC and as of January 2020, fuboTV no longer carries FOX Regional Sports Networks either. Unfortunately, FOX RSNs have disappeared from all streaming services so this is not unique to fuboTV.

In addition to getting access to a wide range of US and international sporting events in 4K, subscribers also get access to popular channels such as Comedy Central, Nickelodeons, MTV, BET, AMC, FX, and many more.

The service has one of the best cloud-based DVRs compared to other major streaming TV platforms. They now also offer limited 4K streaming making it the only major streaming platform to do so. fuboTV has the best stream quality in our opinion.

fuboTV Interface

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.

fuboTV Web App Interface

Depending upon your streaming device the interface will be slightly different; however, they all contain the same main features. The fuboTV 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.

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. The 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.
