What is fuboTV?

In the past, we’ve always thought of fuboTV as thee sports streaming service. But in the past couple of years, fuboTV has made some changes to be perfect for sports fans and families.

fuboTV has more sports channels than any other live TV streaming service (or any TV service, for that matter), and its channel lineup also includes channels for kids, entertainment, lifestyle, and news.

If you’re shopping for a new streaming service or looking to get rid of cable TV, fuboTV is a solid choice. We’ll go over all of the fuboTV details to find out if this is your next live TV service.

  • You’ll get tons of sports channels.
  • You’ll also get lots of channels for everyone in the family.
  • fuboTV now has Disney Channel, ESPN, and ABC.
  • fuboTV no longer has Turner network channels, such as TNT, TBS, and CNN.
  • fuboTV doesn't have HBO.

How much does fuboTV cost?

With fuboTV, you get loads of channels for a reasonable price

fuboTV gives you each channel for about 61 cents each! That's more bang for your buck than most live TV streaming services. 

With YouTube TV and Hulu + Live TV, you’re paying about 75 cents to $1 per channel, and they're only in the 65–85 channel range.

fuboTV is up there in our book because there's no other streaming service in the industry that gives you more than 100 channels for $65, or more than 150 channels for $80.

But before you make the leap with fuboTV, jump down below to the channels section to see if this streaming service has the channel lineup you need.

Both the Starter and Latino plans give you 250 hours of DVR storage, and the Elite plan gives you 1,000.

This can save your family from fighting over DVR space when your family goes on vacation and your daughter wants to record all of the WNBA games and your son wants to record Impossible Engineering.

We really like how fuboTV lowered its most expensive plan's pricing by $5 and added a 1,000-hour DVR storage instead of 500, but the Elite plan used to include the NFL RedZone Channel, and now you have to add the Sports Plus add-on for $10.99 per month to your base price to have access to this glorious channel.

Is the Elite package still worth it?

Yes. For $80, you won't find another streaming service with over 150 channels with that big of a DVR storage. YouTube TV might have an unlimited DVR storage space, but it has 85 channels.

What is the Latino Quarterly plan?

If your Abuelo only speaks Spanish, you can get 32 Spanish-language channels for $33 per month. (Keep in mind, you'll be billed for three months at a time, so you'll be charged $100 every "quarter"). This package includes Zona Fútbol, FOX Deportes, Univision, and beIN Sports en Español.

Does fuboTV have a contract or fees?

fuboTV doesn't have a contract or extra fees. (Thanks fubo.)

Which channels does fuboTV have?

fuboTV has all of the sports channels you need, and you’ll also find lifestyle, kids, and news channels for the fam

The Starter package has over 105 channels, while the Elite package has a whopping 150+. Those extra channels in the Elite plan include more entertainment and sports channels.

So you have to decide for your family … could it be worth spending that extra $15 per month?

fuboTV's Starter package includes the following channels:

  • BBC America
  • Disney Channel
  • Food Network
  • FOX News
  • Freeform
  • FS1
  • Hallmark Channel
  • HGTV
  • Lifetime
  • National Geographic
  • NFL Network
  • Nickelodeon
  • Paramount Network
  • Telemundo
  • Univision
  • USA

fuboTV's Elite package includes the following channels:

  • BBC World News
  • The Cooking Channel
  • FXM
  • Game Show Network
  • MLB Network
  • Nat Geo Wild
  • NBA TV
  • Nicktoons
  • PAC-12 Networks
  • Science Channel
  • Sony Movie Channel
  • TeenNick
  • Tennis Channel

We delve deeper into which sports channels each package has (because those are arguably the most important), so scroll down just a little.

How much are fuboTV’s premium channels and add-ons?

We’re about to get into fuboTV’s biggest flaw —fuboTV doesn't have HBO channels or HBO Max.

fuboTV recently added EPIX and STARZ, so we'll cross our fingers for HBO to come to fubo soon. We do like the idea of getting three premium channels for $20 and saving $12 though.

But at least HBO has its own app, so you’ll just have to get that channel separate from this live TV streaming service.

Which sports channels does fuboTV have?

fuboTV will give you the highest number of sports channels than any other live TV streaming service (or cable TV and satellite provider).

This is where you'll find your national, international, and niche sports channels all in one place.

With the Starter TV plan, you’ll get close to 35 sports channels. And with fubo Elite, you’ll get over 50. If you consider yourself a huge sports fan, this is the package for you.

Sports channels included in the fuboTV Starter plan are the following:

  • BeIN Sports
  • BeIN Sports (4–8)
  • BeIN Sports En Español
  • Big Ten Network
  • CBS Sports Network
  • FS1, FS2
  • fubo Sports Network
  • Golf Channel
  • NBC Sports Network
  • NFL Network
  • Olympic Channel
  • TUDN (Univision Deportes Network)
  • TUDN Extra (1–11)
  • TVG

In the fuboTV Elite plan, you get all of the sports channels above and the following:

  • ACCN
  • ESPNews
  • GINX Esports TV
  • MLB Network
  • NBA TV
  • NHL Network
  • PAC-12 Networks
  • Pac-12 Mountain (or your regional network)
  • SEC Network
  • Stadium
  • Stadium (1–3)
  • Tennis Channel
  • Zona Fútbol

Does fuboTV have on-demand content?

fuboTV has popular TV shows and movies for you and the family to watch whenever you’d like. So you don’t have to wait until it’s live on TV or until after you’ve recorded it.

You might like to watch This Is Us, Hoarders, or Friends, while the kids watch Camp Rock or The LEGO Movie.

fuboTV on-demand content

Which devices are compatible with fuboTV?

You can watch the NBA game on your smartphone at the airport or your smart TV with the whole family. You can pretty much stream fuboTV on any updated streaming device.

Here are a few to choose from:

  • iPhone, iPad
  • Android smartphone and tablet
  • Apple TV
  • Android TV
  • Roku
  • Amazon Fire TV
  • Samsung Smart TV
  • Chromecast
  • Online

We should also mention that fuboTV suggests you have at least a 20 Mbps internet connection for a clear and consistent stream. (Not sure what internet speed you have? Test it out with our tool.)

How much storage space does fuboTV’s DVR have?

fuboTV's DVR is the best its ever been

fuboTV used to only give you 30 hours of Cloud DVR (we don’t know anyone who could survive off of this).

But now, all plans include 250–1,000 hours of storage (now that’s more like it).

The Starter and Latino plans have 250 hours of DVR storage and the Elite plan gives you 1,000. Behind YouTube TV, that's the most storage space any live TV streaming service offers.

This is enough DVR space that won’t limit how many soccer games, movies, and cooking shows you record, and they'll be saved forever (or until you delete them).

How does fuboTV work?

fuboTV’s interface is our favorite among other live TV streaming services

When you first open up fuboTV, your Home tab shows you your recommended live TV channels, featured programs, live sporting events, and recommended on-demand content.

This is similar to other live TV streaming services in the industry.

fuboTV home tab

We like how fuboTV gives you multiple tabs at the top to help you find exactly what you want. This is similar to Hulu + Live TV, but YouTube TV only has three tabs: Library, Home, and Live.

The Sports tab on fuboTV's interface has recently changed, and we like it.

This tab will first recommend featured sports shows and events. When you scroll down, you'll find a mini guide with only sports channels.

What we really like is the fact that you can either use the drop-down menu to find a specific sport, or you have those handy subtabs at the top to take you to content for soccer, football, golf, racing, and other sports.

fuboTV sports tab

Next to the Sports tab, you'll find your on-demand content organized by Shows and Movies.

fuboTV’s Guide is the best in the industry, and we'll highlight why:

  • There is a convenient drop-down menu on the left to change the date.
  • Below that, fuboTV has a menu to choose a genre of channels to easily get to a channel you're in the mood for.
  • If you're looking for a specific channel, fuboTV has a channel search bar at the top to get to your favorite channel within a few seconds.
  • And last but not least, when you hover over the programming, a Record button conveniently pops up.
fuboTV guide tab

And when you go to your recordings, they’re organized from newest to oldest. And you get a search bar to find your show or movie easily!

YouTube TV and Hulu Live both don't have a search bar in its Library. Hulu Live organizes its recordings by TV Shows, Movies, Sports, etc. and YouTube TV doesn't lay out all of your recordings on one screen. Instead, you have to scroll to the right as if you were browsing "Recommended TV Shows".

Recap: Is fuboTV worth it?

It’s perfect for families who absolutely love sports, entertainment, lifestyle, and kids channels

Do you love sports? Do you also want lifestyle, entertainment, kids, and news channels? Do you want more than 100 channels? Do you want to spend less money than cable TV or satellite?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, fuboTV is worth it for you.

These are the reasons why we recommend each of the two fuboTV plans:

  • Starter: This plan is perfect for most families with over 100 channels for kids, news, sports, and lifestyle. You'll get 500 DVR storage hours, three simultaneous streams, and lots of on-demand content for $65 per month. The only reason we wouldn't recommend this plan is if you're a sports aficionado.
  • Elite: For just $15 more, this plan is for big sports fans. It’s for the fans who can’t miss an NBA game, so they need NBA TV. It's for those who want to watch the Dodgers fight for another World Series on MLB Network. It’s for the fans who want to watch all of their Boston Bruins games on NHL Network. And it’s for the fans who need to watch their college sports. This one’s for you.

If you’re still unsure if this is the live TV streaming service for you, we recommend checking out YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, or Sling TV. Our reviews cover everything you need to know, like channel lineups, DVR’s, and pricing.

Now that you know more about the best ISPs in the US, check these out next.

Is your house ready for fuboTV?

fuboTV requires a minimum download speed of 20 Mbps for a smooth stream. And if you and two other members of your family want to stream at the same time, that means you’ll be using 60 Mbps total.

So do you have the bandwidth to support your family’s streaming needs?

Which internet plan should I get?

Here are the internet plans we recommend to get the most out of your streaming services without clogging up your family’s whole network.

Which cell phone plan should I get?

You'll need enough data to support your streaming needs and a good internet connection if you're a cell phone streamer. 

And when you're trying to pass the time on your lunch break or riding the train to work who isn't?

We recommend an unlimited data plan for the family, so you never have to worry about limiting your binge-watching time on fuboTV. And we all know it could lead to a family crisis if someone uses more data than they were allowed.

    FuboTV is the worst service. Everytime there is an important game the service seems not to work. Sports are meant to be watched live. So downtime is not an excuse.

  • Jordan

    This is almost legitimate fraud. The service doesn’t really work for the big soccer matches which is why I signed up. The owner sent out an apology when the last USMNT match wouldn’t work at all because their servers crashed. They didn’t offer any compensation so I canceled. They have since charged me for two months since then and won’t stop it seems. Im now disputing this with my credit card company. Lies, bad customer service and a terrible product as well!

  • Claus Felfe

    I am four days into the 7 day trial period and my experiences have all been excellent. Picture quality is great; there is no buffering at all, and navigating is satisfactory. Being in a trial situation I did not try the DVR function but my son tells me it works ok. A few negatives, you can Pause and Resume while watching a match but you cannot backspace or forward. CNN, ESPN, ESPN2, CNN, ABC, TENNIS CHANNEL (and perhaps other services) are not available. Selecting a channel other than sports is cumbersome and there is no provision for favorite channels. Still, technically, FUBO works great so long as you have adequate bandwidth from your internet service provider.

  • carlos

    They charged me $17.90 during the trial period, DO NOT USE this grabage!!

  • Curtis L.

    DVR has terrible playback issues which they will acknowledge if pressed, but have left unfixed. (Notably, playback will go through extended periods where the playback jumps backwards and forwards in 5 to 15 second chunks before resolving —
    this will happen several times in a single match.—it is worse on a “non-supported” device like the android TV app, but getting an Apple TV to specifically address this issue has only partially improved matters.)

    During the World Cup, playback issues and full outages of both playback and live viewing issues have been constant. I have opened 3 technical tickets in two days. Similar issues occur during classicos and other big events. Most recently, I was unable to watch ANY of my DVR recordings (the recording would “play”, but the screen would be black with no sounds starting a few seconds after starting playback) from early evening until the following morning. (I resolved this issue myself by starting a Sling trial. When I heard back the following morning, I was told they couldn’t duplicate the issue—it had self-corrected by the time they got around to looking at it, but I still missed an entire evening of being able to use their service at all during the World Cup.)

    They neither have the bandwidth to operate their service for high demand events, nor the technical competence to have their service run with sufficiently infrequent bugs and playback issues at normal times.

    Customer service can ONLY be contacted by email and are typically slow to respond. Can’t watch anything tonight? You’ll hear back some time the next day. They will also open by trying to blame your internet speed or the device you are using. They do not take responsibility for their buggy software, and once forced to acknowledge the problem is on their side, they are rarely ever able to resolve issues. Whether they do or not, the same issues always come back later. They still have the same unresolved bugs they had a year ago.

    I wanted to like this service more because their offerings are great, but their technical team and customer service kill it. If only PlayStation Vue hadn’t dropped BeIN, I would have be spared all of this frustration.
