FuboTV specializes for covering sports events and you can watch most of sports channels except ESPN and ABC.
FuboTV is a sports-centric OTT platform and gives you the best experience to watch sporting events across the world. Taking its channels and features into consideration, it does not sound expensive.
When we compare its plans with its competitors like Youtube TV, Sling TV, Hulu and Philo TV, it appears expensive. Its base plan price is higher among all cord-cutter services. However, it offers more channels than other streaming services.
It is offering you the all in one package and you do not need to sign up for different OTT apps. It covers sports, entertainment, originals, TV shows and other language TV channels. Therefore, it worths every penny you spend.
FuboTV operates like other streaming services in which each subscriber gets an account. The subscriber needs to login to the FuboTV account to access its content. If you share your account credential with someone and he logs in your account using your registered email address and password.
You will not be able to log in at the same time. There is a restriction to watch the content on one screen at a time. However, you are free to share your account credential with the person you know.
In case you want to remove the restriction of the number of screens, you should opt-in for family share Add-on. Once you upgrade with this Add-on, you will be able to watch the FuboTV on three screens simultaneously.
Play Station 4, popularly known as PS4 does not offer FuboTV. PS4 has the best in market video games and FuboTV is also a sports-centric streaming service. Therefore, subscribers expect FuboTV to be available on Play Station4. Unfortunately, it is not available.
PS4 has another streaming service Vue. That means you can not expect FuboTV on PS4 in the near future. The reason is that PS4and Vue are owned and promoted by Sony. It will promote its streaming service on its platform.
Yes, you can cast FuboTV content on your smart TV using streaming adapters. The subscriber can use Google Chromecast, Amazon FireTV stick and Roku to cast screen. It also supports other streaming adapters. But we will recommend you to use one of these three.
FuboTV is the best for those who wish to watch sports events most of the time. It offers sports plus package which has NBA, NFL red Zone, PAC channels, Zona Futbol and Gol. In addition to this package, there are other two sports-centric packages. There is an exclusive subscription package for cycling. In our opinion, no other streaming service covers sports at such an extent. However, it does not have ESPN. In case, sports is not your priority, you may consider other streaming services. However, its a complete package for sports plus entertainment. You should try it atleast for 7 days before considering other platforms.
