FuboTV (stylized as fuboTV) is an American over-the-top internet television service that focuses primarily on channels that distribute live sports, including NFL, MLB, NBA, MLS and international soccer, plus news, network television series and movies. [1]

There are several service options with different channel lineups, including fubo (base package), fubo Extra and add-on packages like fubo Latino and fubo Português.[2]

History

FuboTV was co-founded in January 2015 by David Gandler (CEO), Alberto Horihuela (CMO) and Sung Ho Choi. At launch, FuboTV cost $7 per month, and offered live streams from soccer-centric channels. In early 2017, Fubo pivoted to become a broader streaming service, adding entertainment and news programming in addition to soccer and sports from NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL. [3]

Between August and November 2017, FuboTV added CBS[4], MSG and MSG+[5], Pac-12 networks[6], NFL Network and NFL RedZone Channel[7] and NESN[8] to its channel lineup,

On September 13, 2017, FuboTV announced Advanced DVR, paid add-on to its cloud DVR feature.[9]

On October 6, 2017, FuboTV announced that it became an official sponsor of the LA Kings professional hockey team.[10]

On October 10, 2017, the company announced that it had surpassed 100,000 subscribers.[11] On February 5, 2018, it was reported that the company surpassed 150,000 total viewers during Super Bowl LII.[12]

As of September 2018, fuboTV offers live streaming and VOD programming from CBS, FOX, NBC, AMC Networks, TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network, CNN and Showtime. [13]

According to Fast Company, FuboTV still calls itself "sports-first," but instead of being the Netflix of soccer, it's now pitching itself as a direct competitor to cable TV and to live-streaming bundles such as Sling TV and DirecTV Now. FuboTV was the first live-TV streaming service to support 4K HDR video for the World Cup, and it was the first to adopt an industry standard for handling sports blackouts. It also introduced dynamic ad insertion ahead of Hulu and YouTube TV. [14]

Investors in FuboTV include AMC Networks, 21st Century Fox, Luminari Capital, Northzone, Sky, and Scripps Networks Interactive.[15]
