A while back, my soccer-loving teen wanted to watch a championship match. Sadly, the game wasn’t on television. That’s when I discovered fuboTV. My son was able to watch the game live on one of his devices, and all was well with the world.
If you are a sports fan, like my teenage son, then you know how difficult it can be to watch some of the games. Sometimes, they are just not on television, and it can be challenging to find them online as well. And if you do find them online at some obscure website, the quality is often terrible.
In fact, it can be so poor that not watching the game is almost better than streaming it. Fortunately, the fuboTV service has solved that problem.
What is fuboTV Service?
As you may have guessed from the description above, fuboTV is a subscription service that primarily focuses on live sports for both American and international teams. The service also has movies and news for their users to watch when their favorite team is not playing.
The service launched in 2015 as a soccer streaming service, but changed direction and began to expand to add other sports and programs. In September 2017, the service passed the 100,000 subscribers milestone and said they are continuing to see double-digit growth monthly.
The fuboTV app has four packages available for users in the United States: fubo, fubo Extra, fubo Latino, and fubo Português.
The first package fuboTv offers is the fubo package. This one starts at $19.99 for the first month and is then $44.99 every month after that. fubo comes with more than 75 fuboTV channels including beIN Sports, NFL Network, NBATV, NBCSN and a variety of other channels.

fubo Extra Package
The fubo Extra package offers subscribers more than ninety channels. These channels include the sports channels that are in the fubo package. It also includes the Cooking channel, DIY network, and many others.
The package starts at $19.99 for the first month and is $49.99 every month afterward. You can also add-on the same packages for the same prices as with the fubo package.
The third fuboTV package is fubo Latino. A much smaller package than the first two, fubo Latino only offers fifteen channels. However, it is also a lot cheaper at just $17.99 per month. Some of the channels offered with this package are UniMas, Galavision, and TyC Sports.
If the subscriber wants to add more channels, they can. The following fubo package options include the cost of each:
Finally, the last package we will discuss is the fubo Português option for subscribers. fubo Português offers only five channels for $19.99 per month. Some of the channels offered are beIN Sports, beIN Sports ñ, and RTP International.
Also, subscribers of fubo Português can also add-on these extra channels:

DVR Your Favorite Games on fuboTV
In addition to the wide variety of channels offered with fuboTV packages, subscribers can record their programs with fuboTv’s cloud DVR. According to fuboTV’s help center, customers can record live programs on most of the channels before or during the airing of the show. The best part is that it does not matter when you turn the show on, it will always record the entire program.
You can watch your recorded shows in different ways depending on what device you are using. For instance, Android TV and Amazon Fire TV users go to the screen “My Saved Videos” to find their shows. Whereas Android and iOS users will find them on the screen labeled “My fubo.” If you are using a computer browser, Apple TV or Roku, you’ll find the videos in “My Videos.”
Thirty hours of cloud DVR are available with every package free of charge. If you need more storage, you can purchase 500 hours for $9.99 per month. All of the programs that you record are available about an hour after they have ended. Then they will stay in your cloud until you delete them.

So, if you are sick of paying your cable provider hundreds of dollars, but you don’t want to miss out on your favorite sports, fuboTV is for you. You can watch nearly every sports match that you want. The service even offers NFL RedZone as part of its Sports Plus add-on. This ensures that you will never miss a football game.
If you are a soccer fan, you can view the premier league and international games. This includes the World Cup games through fuboTV. Hockey, baseball, basketball, etc. are also available.
