There are a lot of ways to watch TV nowadays. Long gone are the days where cable TV was the only option. Today, consumers have a wide range of alternatives, many of which can save you a ton of money.
One such service is FuboTV, an online live streaming platform that’s known for its great sports coverage but has become one of the best overall streaming platforms around. Below, we go over the details of FuboTV plans and the channels that are available for subscribers.
Like cable TV, FuboTV lets you watch live TV from a variety of channels. And also like cable, there are several different packages as well as add-ons to choose from. We will break down the full FuboTV channels list in this guide, and also cover the basics of how this service works.

FuboTV Plans and Pricing
FuboTV was started in 2015 as a way to stream the wide world of international soccer to underserved audiences in the United States. It gradually grew to cover all sports and today it offers a broad channel lineup that covers everything you would find in a cable subscription — and quite a lot more.
There are three FuboTV plans. Two are geared toward English-language customers: Startup and Elite. But FuboTV also provides service to Spain. That audience and the substantial Spanish-speaking audience in North America are served with FuboTV’s Latino Quarterly plan.

** Watch FuboTV simultaneously on 10 devices at home and two others remotely.
FuboTV Channels Comparison
Many people still think of FuboTV as a streaming service just for sports fans. But that is a very limited view. As discussed below, FuboTV offers a great selection of live programming for sports — especially international sports where no service really compares.
But FuboTV offers the full package with pretty much everything you would expect from a cable provider with the exception of the Turner channels (eg, CNN, TNT, Cartoon Network) and HBO-related pay channels.

FuboTV Sports Channels
There are four kinds of sports channels:
- General: These channels cover a variety of sports depending upon what’s going on in the world. Examples include ESPN, NBCSN (NBC Sports), and FS2 (Fox Sports 2).
- Single sport: These channels focus on a particular sport although they may program other things. Examples include Golf Channel and Tennis Channel.
- League: These channels cover a specific league. There is some crossover with single-sport channels. Examples include NBA Network and Big Ten Network.
- Regional: These channels provide a large amount of coverage of sporting events that don’t have an audience big enough for national coverage. They are referred to as “regional sports networks” or RSNs. The channels included in FuboTV packages depend upon where you live. For more information, see Local Channels below.
Starter Sports Channels
The following table provides all the sports channels for Starter plan subscribers. There are a total of 37 sports channels. Most subscribers will also get one or more regional sports networks (RSNs).

At $10.99/mo, Sport Plus features NFL RedZone, which features 7 hours of live games each Sunday afternoon during the season. It also features the local stream of every game when a team reaches the red zone (20-yard line). But it offers a lot more including NCAA football, NBA, NHL, and more.
There is a fair amount of crossover between Sports Plus and Fubo Extra (see below), which is included with the Elite plan.

FuboTV’s Starter and Elite plans offer over 130 events in 4K (Latino Quarterly offers over 100 events). These include major events such as the Super Bowl, March Madness, NASCAR, and much more. They provide a list of upcoming events streamed in 4K. Note that not all devices support 4K streaming.
FuboTV Local Channels
There are two kinds of local channels that FuboTV provides: network affiliates and regional stations. Their availability is dependent upon the location of the subscriber.
Most locations provide access to affiliates to the majority of these networks. Some, like Philadelphia and San Francisco, provide them all. The coverage in more remote locations is worse. For example, FuboTV provides access only to the NBC affiliate (WVGN) in the Virgin Islands.
FuboTV offers at least some regional stations in most areas. These include important regional sports networks (RSPs), which can be critical additions for local fans.
Non-Sports Channel Add-ons
FuboTV provides general and premium channel add-ons.

But if you want more, you can get the Cloud DVR 1000 ($16.99/mo) and Unlimited Screens ($9.99/mo) add-ons. Note that you can get both these add-ons for just $5.00 more with the Pro plan. See our FuboTV review for all the details.
In order to use FuboTV, you will need to have a supported device. This shouldn’t be difficult. If you are reading this, you probably already have one: your web browser. (FuboTV recommends Chrome, however.)
FuboTV supports most other devices as well: Amazon Fire TV, Android, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Hisense, iPhone, Roku, Samsung Smart TVs, and Xbox One. See our FuboTV device guide for all the details.
Once you know FuboTV is right for you, it’s easy to sign up. See our step-by-step guide.
FuboTV isn’t the only Live TV streaming service. Hulu + Live TV provides an excellent general service for the same price but it doesn’t offer nearly as much in terms of sports programming. Sling TV does not offer as much but costs half as much. In terms of features and price, YouTube TV is FuboTV’s strongest competitor.
When it comes to sports, FuboTV really can’t be beaten. And when it comes to international sports, it hasn’t been equaled. But FuboTV is a good service even for people who aren’t interested in sports at all. If you have decided to move on from cable, check out FuboTV now.
There is a lot more to know about FuboTV. Check out these:
How many channels does FuboTV have?
FuboTV offers over 200 channels in total but the number subscribers receive depends upon their plans and add-ons. The Starter plan ($64.99/mo) with no add-ons features 100+ channels plus whatever local and regional channels are available in your area. The Spanish-language Latino plan ($33.00/mo) only includes 32 channels but even it provides a broad selection of programming.
Does FuboTV have a Family plan?
In mid-2020, FuboTV offered a Family plan for $59.99/mo that featured roughly 60 channels with 3 simultaneous streams and 500 hours of Cloud DVR storage. For $54.99/mo, they offered the Fubo Standard plan, which was the same but with only 30 hours of storage. The Standard plan was soon dropped and the Family plan changed until it became the current Starter plan in March 2021.
Similarly, FuboTV offered the Ultra plan. For $84.99/mo, it contained roughly what is available with the current Elite plan ($79.99/mo) but also included the Showtime add-on. Note that the Elite plan offers at least 25 more channels, twice the DVD storage, and roughly four-times the simultaneous streaming.
What happened to the Fubo Cycling add-on?
FuboTV used to offer a package that added the channel Fubo Cycling to the International Sports Plus add-on for $11.99. As of the start of 2021, FuboTV stopped offering the channel and thus the add-on. There is no indication if or when any cycling-specific channel will return.
Does FuboTV have local channels?
FuboTV has a good selection of local channels. It offers at least some network affiliates in all media markets. In the larger markets, it provides exceptional local network affiliates and regional sports networks. In the smaller markets, its coverage is significantly worse. For these areas, AT&T TV may be a better choice. See Local Channels for more information.
