What FuboTV Has to Offer
FuboTV is an excellent deal for any sports fan. It covers many sports, even some niche categories, such as Portuguese soccer, Latino channels, and has many other add-on options. Besides sports, you will also get Bravo, Nat Geo, FX, History, and most of the major U.S. TV networks.
Fubo Premier is a pretty good investment, considering it nets you over 70 channels. Note that all content on the platform is in HD resolution (1080p), so we recommend a fast internet connection (100 Mbps or higher).
FuboTV gives you a total of 30 hours of free DVR storage, which is fantastic. You can pay extra to add 500 more hours. Also, Fubo allows you to replay any shows that aired in the past three days.
There is on-demand content as well. The cross-platform support is excellent, which means you can watch FuboTV on pretty much any device in your home.
Roku and FuboTV go hand in hand, being one of the most alluring cord-cutting combos on the market. FuboTV offers competitive prices, excellent content, and reliable cross-platform compatibility. However, keep in mind that the costs of additional packages and channels can stack up quickly.
