While many must be aware of FuboTV and its advantages, there is still a long road to cover. If you are planning to switch to it and want to get rid of the confusion, you have stumbled across the right place. In this guide, we have covered FuboTV in detail, including its plans and channel options.
What is ‘FuboTV’?
The streaming service made its online debut back in 2015. Initially, the platform began as a place for soccer fans to watch their favorite teams’ games. However, the service has added a lot of new features down the line.
As of now, it is an industry leader in providing its users with tons of sports channels. Additionally, FuboTV has now also added Disney-owned channels to its lineup. However, you will not find a single WarnerMedia-owned channel here.
‘FuboTV’ streaming plan: Is it free to use?
Due to the rise of numerous streaming services, there is cutthroat competition in the industry. To ensure that FuboTV’s userbase goes uphill, the streaming service indeed provides a free trial. Although the free trial lasts a week, in all honesty, it is more than enough to get a rough idea about its content and features.
After using the free trial, if you like the service, you will probably like to know about the various FuboTV streaming plans. So, here is a complete breakdown of all the plans offered by the streaming service:
|Plan Name||Price||Number of channels||Cloud DVR||Simultaneous Stream|
|Fubo Starter||$64.99||116||250 Hours||3|
|Fubo Pro||$69.99||116||1000 Hours||10|
|Fubo Elite||$79.99||169||1000 Hours||10|
The plans provided by the service are not on the cheaper end. However, considering it provides access to almost all sports channels, it can be a heavenly experience for sports fans.
Moreover, with the Pro and Elite plans, you get 1000 cloud DVR hours. But the best part about the higher-end plans is they allow up to 10 people to stream their favorite content simultaneously. So in case you were looking to chip in the money with your friends to purchase an OTT service, then it’s perfect for you.
