Fubo TV Review
If you want to cut the cord to save money, fuboTV is a sports-heavy live TV streaming service that you may want to deem in 2021. Let us have a look on fubo TV Review. Fubo TV launched in 2015 with a focus on soccer, but it has evolved since then into a great cable TV option.
- FuboTV’s interface is slick and well-designed and comes with 250 hours of Cloud DVR.
- Supports 1080p
- More than one member of the family or friends can stream at the same time.
Fubo TV offers a free, seven-day trial of its Family plan, which costs $64.99 a month for 122 channels, 250 hours of Cloud DVR storage and three simultaneous streams.
That Family plan is now the default plan, as the $60 Standard plan just went the way of the dodo. The Ultra plan costs $84.99 and adds the Fubo Extra and Sports Plus packages on top of the Family plan.
All plans come with six profiles per account, so friends and family members can customize their preferences.
On top of one of the plans, Fubo users can pay for add-ons, like Showtime and Starz.
Availability and platforms
FuboTV is available on most major platforms:
- Web browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox)
- Most iPhones and iPads (iOS 10 and later)
- Most Android phones and tablets (OS 5.0 and later)
- Apple TV (4th gen and later)
- Roku (model 3600X and later)
- Samsung Smart TVs
- Fire TV (all models)

Fubo’s interface is slick and well-designed. The black, grey and the white colour palette is more attractive than YouTube’s stark, utilitarian look, though not quite as pleasing as Philo’s interface.
The menu is divided into a handful of tabs (which differ slightly between platforms). On the web, those tabs are Home, Sports, Shows, Movies, Guide and Recordings. On mobile, the Shows and Movies sections are combined into Entertainment, while Recordings is labelled My Fubo.
The Home tab is broken down into sections, like Live TV, 4K on Demand, Live Sports, Popular Shows and Popular Movies. The Sports tab shows all the games that are airing that day or on future days. The Shows and Movies tab highlights popular titles and content on-demand.
The Guide tab features the typical cable-like grid with a vertical list of networks and horizontal times. The networks are not alphabetized, so you may need to hunt for your preferred channels. But you can also favourite channels, so they always live at the top of the Guide.
The Recordings tab houses all the shows and movies you have recorded as well as a marker for how much Cloud DVR storage you’ve used. fuboTV’s cloud-based DVR allows users to record any live programs on most channels either before or during the program’s airing.
The Family bundle comes with 250 hours of cloud DVR storage space, but there is an option to upgrade to 1,000 hours for an additional monthly fee.
To manage your DVR, navigate to the “Recordings” tab from the home screen.fubo TV’s cloud DVR is the ability to record an entire series. When this option is present, you can choose to record new episodes and reruns or new episodes only. Fast-forwarding through commercials is allowed, so that’s another plus for the DVR.
Content and channels
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. Fubo does offer the Viacom-owned networks, like MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon. The add-ons include two premium channels and several packages geared toward different interests, primarily niche sports. The service recently added MLB Network + MLB StrikeZone and the NHL Network.
FuboTV supports up to 1080p, depending on the channel and program. Most of the content is only available up to 720p. Fubo also offers limited events in 4K (currently more than 130 of them) and only on devices that can stream 4K content such as the Apple TV 4K, Chromecast Ultra, FireTV Stick 4K, Roku Premiere and Android mobile phones with HDR10 displays.
More than one member of a household can stream fuboTV at the same time. Three simultaneous streams are included with the Family bundle or you can add more streams for an extra fee.
Also, up to six users can create a profile under a single fuboTV subscription.
When you open fuboTV, you’ll see a Netflix-style profile screen. Users can select their favourite channels, follow series and record the content that they want.
fuboTV has focused on improving the user experience. At first, I thought it might be overwhelming to navigate 100 channels in the guide when I only watch a few of them. But favoriting a channel puts it front and centre on the home screen and when you’re using the live guide.

Ultimately, this Fubo TV review concludes that it’s right for you if you’re willing to spend an extra few bucks a month to build a more complete channel chart. If your preferred channels are only in Fubo’s lineup, it may be the best cable replacement service for you.
