fubotv adds bally sports rsns

New for 2023: fuboTV has announced the addition of Bally Sports RSNs. Starting this year, fuboTV users will be charged a mandatory fee based on the number of RSNs available in their region. If one RSN is available, as is the case with the Detroit area, the additional RSN fee will be $10.99 per month. When two RSNs are available, as is the case with Denver, the extra fee will be $13.99 per month. So, bottom line, if you live in a region that is in-market for an RSN, you will subscribe to it automatically when you sign up for fuboTV.

fuboTV is a popular choice for live TV streaming, especially for sports fans, but also offers a library of on-demand titles as well. We signed up for a free 7 day trial to explore the pros and cons of fuboTV, and continue to use the app during football season.

fuboTV Pros

  • Live streaming NFL games (our top pick)
  • Easy signup
  • College football (our top pick)
  • Big families
  • NBC Sports regional sports networks in Chicago, Philly, DC, Bay Area, and Boston
  • Customers who prioritize design and user experience

  • Stream content on 10 devices

fuboTV Cons

  • Missing TBS and TNT hurts sports coverage for several leagues, and some of the biggest games
  • Holes in NCAA Tournament, NHL Playoffs, NBA Playoffs, and MLB Playoffs coverage
  • Price increases in 2023 for the addition of Bally Sports RSNs
  • No parental controls

Our experience with fuboTV

In Spring 2022, fuboTV did away with its Starter Plan. The Pro Plan is now the base plan, and comes out of the gate with 1,000 hours of DVR storage.

With the Pro Plan fuboTV subscribers can stream 10 concurrent devices, whereas the old Starter Plan only offered 3 devices.

Signing up for a 7 day free trial with fuboTV

At Streaming Stadium, we see a rush of traffic to our team pages right as games are starting. As such, we prioritize streaming services with easy setup processes, especially for older sports fans who may not be quite as tech savvy.

The fuboTV sign up process is the most intuitive we have seen among live TV streaming services. Rather than dropping new users off in the middle of a vast content library with little guidance, as some streaming services do, fuboTV has clearly put a lot of thought into the sign up process.

fuboTV makes streaming easy

Older sports fans are being left behind with the proliferation of streaming exclusive games. fuboTV’s beautiful interface and easy to setup preferences are ideal for anyone who struggles with new technologies.

Upon signing up for the 7 day free trial, subscribers are guided through a series of Welcome screens that clearly lay out the different packages fuboTV offers, as well as a transparent list of à la carte channel upgrades, with clear pricing for the addition of each channel.

Even the signup screen offers transparent guidance, setting user expectations by letting users know “your location determines what plans and channels are available to you.” We really enjoyed using and reviewing this platform.

As part of the setup process, fuboTV also lays out all the available options and key features of each plan.

Particularly impressive is fuboTV’s “Find channels faster” setup feature, which allows users to select from a menu of channels the first time they log into the app.

This takes a lot of the guesswork out of navigating a large library of content and also allows for each user to immediately start creating a curated experience. We were very impressed with fuboTV’s sign up process, as well as the multiple tools it has created to make it easier, and more efficient, to use the app. The thought fuboTV put into this process shows respect for the money its users pay to subscribe. Yes, you are shelling out $69.99 monthly, which is a lot of money, but in exchange you get a first class user experience that is fun and intuitive to use.

The setup process is also ideal for older family members who may struggle to use other platforms.

Watching sports on fuboTV

Planning this weekend’s NFL and NCAAF viewing on fuboTV.

fuboTV’s extensive sports options are intuitively organized by sport, or channel, whichever the user prefers. For the bulk of my initial testing, I used fuboTV to watch college football on a Saturday afternoon. I watched the Ohio State vs. Michigan State game, the Michigan vs. Maryland game, and some of the Oregon vs. Utah game.

The picture quality and overall experience were excellent. As a test for the app, I used Apple Airplay to stream the Ohio State game to my TV in our living room. My favorite sports channels while using fuboTV were:

fuboTV streaming experience

Fubo TV interface streaming from iOS.

Most of fuboTV’s content can be streamed with 720p picture quality, which may seem underwhelming to some, but we found the picture quality to be stable and consistent. fuboTV also offers some content in 4K, and seems to be making it a priority to add more 4K options with time.

Unfortunately, fuboTV does not offer Turner Media channels such as CNN, TNT and TBS. A&E, History Channel, and Lifetime.

Nevertheless, the platform still offers an excellent selection of live TV channels to choose from including some of our favorites:

  • AMC
  • Animal Planet
  • BBC America
  • BEIN Sports
  • BET
  • Bravo
  • CBS Sports Network
  • Cheddar News
  • CMT
  • CNBC
  • Comedy Central
  • COMET
  • Disney Channel
  • Food Network
  • Fox News
  • FOX
  • Fox Sports
  • Free Form
  • FX
  • NBC Golf
  • Hallmark
  • HGTV
  • IFC
  • NBC
  • NBC Sports
  • TLC
  • Telemundo
  • USA
  • WE

Using the fuboTV mobile app

The Fubo TV app is available on both Android and iOS. As I mentioned earlier in the review, the app is very well done. The user interface is beautiful and they have made it incredibly intuitive to access their library of content from mobile. Despite the decision to drop some popular channels, many people will enjoy subscribing to fuboTV just because of the features they’ve built.

The same intuitive setup process users get when they first sign up for a fuboTV account carries over when the app is opened for the first time. By using a two tiered navigation, with some options at the top of the screen, and some universal navigation items, like the very useful Guide feature, at the bottom, it’s easy to get deep into the content you want to see.

Using DVR on mobile is a breeze, and recording an entire game won’t come close to putting a dent in the impressive 1,000 hours of DVR storage that comes with the base plan.

fuboTV is placing big bets that a beautiful interface and rich feature set will carry the day and help the company beat the competition. They could be right. Here are some of the platform’s best features.

Keep up with your favorite teams feature

For example, the “Keep up with your favorite teams” feature, which appears on sign up, will send notifications to a user’s phone reminding them of upcoming games they are interested in watching. I know there are a lot of diehard fans out there who scoff at the thought of needing a reminder when their favorite team plays, but this tool is useful for following competing teams, entire leagues, or for sports journalists. It’s a thoughtful touch designed for sports fans that I loved.

DVR recording, storage, scheduling, and sorting

The interface excellence fuboTV prides itself on carries over to its DVR recording feature, which not only allows users to save 1,000 hours of content to the cloud with the base package, Fubo automatically sorts recorded content by topic, which feels very clean and efficient. When I log into my DVR dashboard, my movies, TV shows, and sports libraries are all separated in a fashion I think even Marie Kondo would be proud of. Subscribers can also schedule recordings for one-off shows, or setup the automatic recording of their favorite teams every time they play.

Unlimited screens

A nice feature for big families, the fuboTV unlimited screens feature allows for subscribers to connect as many as 10 devices on their home network.

fuboTV lacks parental controls

I was surprised that fuboTV hasn’t yet built in parental controls.
