How to watch live sports on Fubo TV

FuboTV is tailor-made for soccer fans, hosting an impressive array of sports networks, including CBS, NBC and USA. With the US “Soccer Champions Tour” due to begin on July 22nd, it’s time to get your streaming in order. 

What is FuboTV

As an internet streaming service, FuboTV scores early in the game with anyone wanting to cable-cut. It offers upwards of 160 channels and offers three core subscription packages: Pro, Elite and Premier. If that’s not enough, 130+ events are available in 4k, so… you’ll be able to argue with the ref on good authority.

There is also a Latino subscription package, which offers live sports coverage in Spanish. This package has significantly reduced channels and DVR storage when compared to the other three but has a reduced monthly fee to match.

Watching Live Sports on Fubo TV

General Sports Coverage

Of the three packages available, the Elite subscription is the best package for fans wanting to watch a variety of events across different sports. It comes with the 40 base sports channels available with Pro, and the fubo extra sports channels, for $10 cheaper than the premier package.  

There’s NBA TV for basketball fans, while MLB, NHL, and NFL Network cover the big baseball, hockey, and football games. Golf Channel covers competitions like the PGA tour and Capital One’s ‘The Match’, while Tennis Channel has the US and Australian Open, Wimbledon and Roland Garros under wraps. 

Pretty much all your ESPN channels are included with this package, which is great for most sports fans, including motorsport, as ESPN and ESPN 2 provide consistent coverage of the F1 season. Motorsport fans can also watch all 24 hours of Le Mans via MotorTrend, as well as live interviews and footage from the 2023 NASCAR Championship.

Soccer Coverage

Broadcasting rights for the UEFA Champions League, WSL and NWSL are all currently held by CBS, which is included in Pro, Elite and Premier subscriptions. Many English Premier League games can be viewed over USA and NBC channels, while ESPN shows some La Liga matches and certain German Bundesliga games. 

However, for full coverage of the Bundesliga and EFL games, an ESPN+ subscription would be needed, which isn’t included with FuboTV. 

Another big absence in the channel lineup is Turner Sports Networks. This is especially relevant to soccer fans, as U.S.Soccer have done a broadcasting deal with Turner Sports. Many US-friendly matches will be broadcast primarily over Turner channels, including big events like the SheBelieves Cup and the CONCACAF Champions League. So, if national soccer competitions and friendlies are your thing, FuboTV may not be your best option for live coverage. 

Offers and Promotions

Fubo TV Pros & Cons

Pros

  • International soccer coverage – For those wanting to keep up with international soccer leagues and events, FuboTV has all the channels you need. 
  • Variety  – FuboTV isn’t just great for soccer fans, it offers an impressive range of sports channels as part of its Elite and Premier packages, so there’s something for everyone. 
  • Internet Streaming – You get cable cut, which means no separate DVR storage equipment or installations, as well as streaming on the go.
  • Cloud DVR storage – With 1000 hours of cloud DVR storage, there’s no need to worry about “storage full”. Re-watch your favorite moments or save the game for later when your schedule clashes. 
  •  “Unlimited” streaming on your home network – No one’s TV time needs to clash; you can watch on up to 10 screens on your home network. 

Cons

  • No Turner Sports Channels – FuboTV is the only service in the premium TV streaming price range that is unable to offer TNT, which impacts the national soccer coverage that’s available.
  • Limited Regional Sports Networks – Compared to other services in the same price range, like DirectTV, the number of RSNs available with the monthly subscription isn’t as broad.

Fubo TV Compared to Other Live Sports Streaming Services

Because of FuboTV’s subscription pricing, it would be considered a premium service. Its big competitors for channel variety in a similar price range are the likes of Direct TV, HuluTV and YouTube TV. For comparison, please see the table below:

Is Fubo TV worth it?

For Soccer fans? Absolutely. Unlike some of its competitors, all of FuboTV’s packages provide substantial sports coverage. If your budget is capped at a Pro subscription, you still have access to 40 sports channels and a substantial amount of Premier League coverage in 4k. 

Our Takeaway

Overall, the range of sports available through FuboTV’s Pro, Elite and Premier packages is considerable, and soccer is but one of many sports that receive devoted coverage. If that’s not enough, over 100 events are covered live in 4k, so you’re closer to the action. 

There are no cable cords or bulky satellite dishes, you have the convenience of streaming your favorite content across multiple devices, anytime, anywhere. Meanwhile, its cloud DVR storage feature ensures flexibility, so you can always watch the big games on your calendar.

If you haven’t managed to snag tickets to the next El Clasico face-off, watching in 4k
