Is Fubo good?

As a live TV streaming service with hundreds of live channels and a fat DVR, Fubo is another good option for cable quitters to kick around. It’s a little more expensive than most, but its multitude of features are worth it here.

Under the name fuboTV, the service launched in 2015 as “Netflix for soccer.” But it has since set its sights on becoming a full-fledged TV streaming destination. Don’t worry, soccer fans. It still covers the beautiful game ridiculously well—Fubo has far from abandoned its original goooaaalll!

In fact, most of Fubo’s live TV streaming lineup is still made up of sports channels. So, if you compare it to other streaming services that offer more balanced entertainment-to-sports programming ratios, it’s still a few yards short.

What is Fubo?

Fubo is an expensive streaming service, but it offers cord-cutters the most sports-specific channels and a sufficient lineup of entertainment networks. Soccer is still its specialty, but league channels like NBA TV, NHL Network, and NFL Network bolster its athletic scope. It’s one of our favorite streaming services for sports for a reason.

Fubo offers over 220 live channels, a 1,000-hour cloud DVR, and a slick interface that neatly mirrors what you’re used to with cable or satellite service. Fubo ranks competitively for sports channels in our Best Live TV Streaming Services rundown.

It’s also just fun to say “Fubo.”

Fubo offers three English-language base plans: Pro, Elite, and Premier. Most features are similar across each plan, with channel counts being the main distinguisher.

  • Pro ($74.99 a month) delivers 150+ channels with 1,000 hours of cloud DVR storage. Subscribers can also stream on up to 10 screens simultaneously at home.
  • Elite ($84.99 a month) has the same channels and benefits as the Pro plan. However, it also includes the Fubo Extra and News Plus add-ons and access to 4K content.
  • Premier ($94.99 a month) features everything from the Elite plan plus nine SHOWTIME channels.

Fubo also offers the Latino package for those who prefer Spanish-language programming. The plan costs $32.99 a month, with 45+ channels, 250 DVR hours, and two simultaneous streams.

Fubo’s pricing is not bad when considering the number of available channels. But there’s a hidden regional sports fee depending on your billing location and how many regional sports networks (RSNs) you get. One RSN will cost you an added $10.99 a month, while the price for two or more is $13.99 a month.

Free trial: Fubo offers a seven-day free trial for new users. You can stream live TV from over 150 channels for a week before fully committing to the service.

Fubo channels

Cable entertainment staples like Syfy, HGTV, FX, Comedy Central, and USA Network all stream live on Fubo, with previously aired programming available on demand.

If you like news, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, Fox Business, and Cheddar News are also available. You can find the complete list on our Fubo Channel Lineup page.

But wait, to paraphrase late-night infomercials, there’s less. Besides TBS and TNT, Fubo is also missing a few entertainment channels that prospective cord-cutters might overlook at first glance. You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone from your channel lineup.

Channels Fubo doesn’t carry

  • A&E
  • AMC
  • BBC America
  • Boomerang
  • Cartoon Network/Adult Swim
  • CNN
  • CNN International
  • CNN en Español
  • HBO
  • HLN
  • IFC
  • Lifetime
  • Lifetime Movie Network
  • TBS
  • TNT
  • truTV
  • Turner Classic Movies

Those are some heavy-hitters to do without—no Cartoon Network or truTV? Life with no Rick and Morty or Impractical Jokers is rough.

Fubo sports channels

Fubo carries sports, sports, and more sports—including CBS Sports, ESPN, FOX Sports, and NBC Sports channels. The big thumbs-down is that it’s missing TBS, TNT, and truTV, which carry national baseball, basketball, and hockey games.

Still, we’ve named it one of the best live TV streaming services for sports. You’ll see why when we list the channels below.

Fubo live sports channels (partial list)

  • ACC Network
  • Big Ten Network
  • CBS Sports Network
  • ESPN
  • ESPN2
  • ESPN Deportes
  • FS1
  • FS2
  • Pac-12 Network
  • FOX Soccer Plus
  • Fox Deportes
  • Fubo Sports Network
  • Golf Channel
  • NBA TV
  • NFL Network
  • NFL RedZone
  • NHL Network
  • TUDN
  • Regional sports networks

Obviously, Fubo’s jam is sports—and the above list doesn’t even include the optional sports-package add-ons available. If your sports tastes lean more varied and international (is there such a thing as a “sports hipster”?), Fubo probably has it. Check out our full Fubo Sports Packages guide for a closer look at the streamer’s sports coverage and playback features.

Fubo local channels

Fubo doesn’t carry local channels like ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, The CW, and Telemundo in all areas, but it does offer content on-demand from these networks.

Admit it: You don’t want to miss the new season of The Voice any more than we do. But it’s possible your plan could lack NBC in your area. If so, you may want to buy a digital over-the-air antenna to pick up local TV stations for free.

Fubo channel add-ons

Fubo’s basic plans can get you over 150 channels. But you can drop a few more bucks if you need even more sports or some extended entertainment.

Fubo add-on packages

  • SHOWTIME ($10.99/mo.)
  • STARZ ($9.99/mo.)
  • MGM+ ($5.99/mo.)
  • SHOWTIME + STARZ + MGM+ ($19.99/mo.)
  • Fubo Extra (57 channels; $7.99/mo.)
  • Sports Plus with NFL RedZone (35 channels; $10.99/mo.)
  • Adventure Plus (8 channels; $4.99/mo.)
  • Latino Plus (40 channels; $19.99/mo.)
  • News Plus (10 channels; $2.99/mo.)
  • RAI Italia ($8.99/mo.)
  • Portuguese Plus (4 channels; $14.99/mo.)
  • International Sports Plus (15 channels; $6.99/mo.)
  • TV5MONDE ($9.99/mo.)
  • Entretenimiento Plus (7 channels; $9.99/mo.)

Fubo specs and features

Fubo more than holds its own when it comes to cloud DVR hours, simultaneous streams, and compatible devices—outperforming top competitors like Hulu + Live TV and Sling TV. That said, the devil is in the details. Read on to understand some of Fubo’s limitations before you sign up.

Fubo cloud DVR

Plan Storage
Pro 1,000 hrs. included
Elite 1,000 hrs. included
Premier 1,000 hrs. included
Latino 250 hrs. included

Data effective as of post date.

Fubo’s three English-language base plans come with 1,000 hours of cloud DVR space. That’s not too shabby, but unlimited DVR storage is becoming the norm with other services.

Regardless, if you like to let those House Hunters episodes and Swiss Super League matches accumulate, you’ll appreciate Fubo’s DVR.

Fubo simultaneous streams

Plan Streams
Pro Up to 10
Elite Up to 10
Premier Up to 10
Latino 2

Data effective as of post date.

Fubo’s Pro, Elite, and Premier plans give you 10 streams on the same home network. During our hundreds of hours of user testing, our team confirmed that you can’t stream Fubo at the same time on separate home networks. So, if you’re sharing your login with other households, you’ll need to factor in that little detail.

Fubo compatible devices

As seen in the list below, you can stream Fubo across many platforms that support the Fubo app and website. For the best streaming experience, you’ll need to keep your devices updated with the latest software release. Fubo also recommends an internet connection of at least 3 Mbs for continuous streaming.

  • Amazon Fire Cub, Stick, TVs
  • Android phones, tablets, TVs
  • Apple TV
  • Chromecast, Chromecast with Google TV
  • Hisense VIDAA
  • iPhone, iPad, iPod
  • LG TVs
  • PC, Mac web browsers
  • Roku Ultra, Express, Premiere, Stick, TVs
  • Samsung Smart TVs
  • Vizio SmartCast TVs
  • Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X

Data effective as of post date.

Game over! Despite being an excellent service for watching live sports, Fubo doesn’t play well for gamers. PlayStation, Nintendo, and NVIDIA platforms are not compatible.

Fubo video and audio quality

Fubo streams at 720p/60 fps, which is currently the standard across all live TV streaming services, making its HD quality comparable to other services like YouTube TV and Sling TV. However, some on-demand content streams at 1080p resolution.

One thing that Fubo offers that the others don’t? It has 4K sports streaming, even though it’s limited to certain events on NBC, FOX, and FS1.

Fubo’s sound feed is standard 2.0 stereo audio; Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 Surround Sound isn’t yet available. You’re not missing out on much, though: streaming services often advertise Dolby 5.1 sound, but that claim applies to only a select amount of programming.

Don’t underestimate 4K: Until you experience a soccer ball coming at your face in 4K, you don’t know what you’re missing. Check out’s take on 4K streaming.

Is Fubo worth it?

For fans of soccer and international sports, Fubo is a dream streamer. It’s one of’s no-brainer picks for the best live TV streaming service for sports.

For cord-cutters looking to replace cable or satellite service entirely, however, wake up: Fubo has a few holes in its entertainment channel lineup for us to fully recommend it as a stand-alone cable substitute.

But if your regular live TV viewing needs are minimal and you’ve been meaning to get into Australian women’s cricket (who hasn’t?), Fubo could open up a whole new world for you.

Fubo FAQ

How much does Fubo cost per month?

Fubo’s three English-language base plans cost between $74.99 and $94.99 a month. The Pro, Elite, and Premier plans have over 150 channels and 1,000 hours of cloud DVR storage. Fubo also offers its Latino plan for $32.99 a month—featuring 60+ channels and 250 hours of DVR space.

Can I get Fubo for free?

Fubo isn’t free, but the streaming service does offer a seven-day free trial to take it for a test drive. Live TV streaming service Philo also has a free trial period.

What’s better, Hulu + Live or Fubo?

For about the same price per month, Fubo carries more live channels than Hulu + Live TV (Hulu + Live TV: 85+; Fubo: 150–220+). But Hulu + Live TV also gives you access to Hulu’s large library of on-demand TV shows and movies, as well as Disney+ and ESPN+—because of this, we think Hulu + Live TV is a better value than Fubo.

Which is better, Sling TV or Fubo?

Sling TV offers cheaper plans than Fubo but has fewer channels in its basic plans. Even though Sling TV features a wide array of add-on channel packages, we prefer Fubo’s live TV streaming experience. Our Sling TV vs. Fubo guide explains in more detail how the two services compare.

Is Fubo better than YouTube TV?

YouTube TV and Fubo are close in price and channel counts, but YouTube TV has the advantage of carrying more local channels in most markets. It also has Warner Bros. Discovery channels like TBS, TNT, and CNN and offers the NFL Sunday Ticket add-on—not to mention an unlimited DVR. In this case, we’d give YouTube TV the edge over Fubo.

Is Fubo free to cancel?

Yes, you can cancel your Fubo subscription for free at any time. Simply visit the Subscription and Billing page under My Account to cancel your plan. Fubo may offer a discount to tempt you to stay. You also have the option to pause your subscription for up to three months if you plan to return and don’t want to lose your account settings.

Is Fubo free with Amazon Prime?

No, Fubo is not available through Amazon Prime Video. However, you can stream the streaming service’s free Fubo Sports Network on Amazon Freevee.
