Summary of expert reviews

FuboTV started as a soccer streaming service, and while still specializing in live sports and become more of an all-inclusive streaming service. 

“Fubo’s channel lineup is huge. The largest among the higher-priced streaming services, FuboTV includes almost all of the local networks as well as top cable brands. In summer 2020, they added Disney-owned channels like ABC and ESPN, but took away Turned-owned channels like CNN and TNT,” noted Kelly Woo of Tom’s Guide

While they have successfully expanded past sports, most experts still noted it is their speciality, “fuboTV will give you the highest number of sports channels than any other live TV streaming service (or cable TV and satellite provider). This is where you’ll find your national, international, and niche sports channels all in one place,” said Chantel Buchi of Reviews.org

The device list fuboTV on was impressive to most experts such as Nick Cole of Clark emphasizing, “One of the biggest perks of cutting the cord and opting into a service like fuboTV is the variety of ways in which you can enjoy the content.”

The pricing is comparable to it’s main competitors of Hulu and YoutubeTV with plans ranging from $65 to $80/mo with plenty of premium storage or channel add-ons available. 

A few experts did note the downside of streaming quality, including Ben Moore of PC Mag, “FuboTV’s biggest downsides are that it only offers 720p streams for most live content and lacks Bally Sports regional sports networks (RSNs) and Turner channels.”

Overall, fuboTV was recommended across the board for those looking for a traditional cable substitute that specializes in sports, although there may be better options if you are more interested in a wider array of content.
