How to Watch Soccer Without a Cable TV Subscription
Sometimes being a soccer fan in the United States can be a bit frustrating. Even with substantially large organizations like Major League Soccer (MLS), the sports gets little love from cable television.
But what if I were to tell you that you don’t need cable television to watch soccer? What if I told you that you’ll actually get MORE choices in soccer if you cut the cord and kill the cable bill; would you do it? If so, then good news! Today I’m going to tell you about fuboTV.
What is fubo TV? A fantastic new streaming service that will deliver to you more soccer than you can shake a stick at. Are you ready to stop being treated like a second class sports fan? Good, then let’s get started!
How Much Does fuboTV Cost?
Making its debut in January of 2015, fuboTV is a streaming service that opens up the wide world of soccer to American fans. For $6.99 a month (rumors of this changing to $9.99 in Oct 2015), fuboTV gives you access to 12 live soccer channels from around the world.
There are no yearly contracts, no cancellation penalties, or any of the complicated garbage that comes with signing up for a cable subscription.

Unlike some services out there that don’t provide quality streams, fuboTV gives you all your favorite matches in 1080p HD. No more pixels, no more blurs.
Here are the leagues you’ll get when you subscribe to fuboTV:
You’ll also get access to several championships; such as the Copa America, Copa America Centenario, CONMEBOL, Football League Championship, English League Cup, and Swiss Super League.
FuboTV DVR and Apps
Afraid you’ll miss a match? Not to worry, fuboTV offers a DVR feature that allows you to record matches so you can watch them on-demand!
Great news for Apple and Amazon fans! The latest updates to the Fire TV and iOS applications come with some big changes. For the Fire TV app, you will be able to make one-click purchase in-app purchases. You’ll also be able to pause, rewind, and record live TV using a cloud-based DVR. The new iOS app will also come with DVR features, as well as a few other goodies; such as chat features, picture-in-picture, and the ability to cast to your television using Chromecast.
Sorry Android fans, no cool updates for you. But, given time, it is doubtless that these new features will finally make their way over.
The only bummer about fuboTV is that you can only stream one device at a time; which means you’re out of luck if there’s a conflict over which match to watch. Also, if you live outside of the United States you won’t be able to use fuboTV. But I’m just nitpicking here; fuboTV is still a stellar service.
