Though it may not be the most well-known live TV streaming service on the market, FuboTV is one of the best available. While FuboTV is priced similarly to YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV, it's packed with dozens of additional sports and entertainment channels, making it nearly impossible to find a better place to stream.

What is FuboTV?

The FuboTV streaming service uses your location to include local channels with your monthly subscription and gives you access to more than 100 live channels. In most markets, this includes the likes of ABC, FOX, NBC, CBS, The CW, Telemundo, Univision, and various entertainment and lifestyle networks.

Among other perks, Fubo's monthly subscription plans have no hidden fees, and you're not required to sign a contract as a traditional cable company would. If you eventually decide that you're not using the service, you can choose to end your subscription at any time with no penalty.

FuboTV lets you watch more than 100 channels with its base Fubo Starter plan, though the exact number varies based on your location. With add-ons and additional channels available to purchase separately, you could potentially have access to more than 210 channels depending on where you live. Here's how that breaks down.

Channels on FuboTV

FuboTV uses your location so you can stream local TV channels in your area, such as ABC, FOX, NBC, CBS, The CW, Telemundo, and Univision. While these local networks are available in most markets, they are blocked in select regions due to licensing restrictions. So before signing up, you'll want to check out the Fubo TV channel guide on its website to see which local channels you'll be able to stream in your region.

Are there any FuboTV deals?

Finding a FuboTV deal is pretty rare. However, it's worth pointing out that FuboTV allows you to upgrade aspects of your plan without jumping up to the next subscription tier.

Specifically, you can choose to increase your cloud DVR to 250 hours for an additional $9.99/month or increase your cloud DVR storage to 1000 for $16.99/month. You can also add the Family Share option for $5.99/month, allowing three people to stream simultaneously, or add the Unlimited Screens feature for $9.99/month. That add-on allows you to watch on up to 10 devices at once on your home network, plus two on the go.

There are also three free trials available at FuboTV right now. As such, you can sign up for either the Fubo Starter, Fubo Pro, or Fubo Elite plan and score your first seven days of access completely free. You'll need to enter your billing information to sign up, though you won't be charged until after your free 7-day trial has ended. You're able to cancel the trial at any time during the seven days without being charged if you don't want to stay subscribed. As mentioned above, Fubo doesn't allow you to sign up for the free trial if you're signing up for the Latino Plus package.
