How Much Does fuboTV Cost?

fuboTV gives you a 7-day free trial on your chosen package (unless you are subscribing to Latino Quarterly, which has no trial). You then need to pay a monthly subscription fee, with the price of each plan reflecting how much is included.

fuboTV is currently offering a discount on its 2 most expensive plans, Pro and Elite, which brings down the monthly cost to a more manageable level. Besides this, subscribing to fuboTV is fairly expensive, but will give you a lot of content for your money—and it’s still cheaper than many cable services. With the exception of the Latino Quarterly plan, which is charged every 3 months, there is no contract, so you can pay on a monthly basis and cancel whenever you like.

I have just recently begun using FudoTV and so far, I have been pleased with the service as to signal and content. Since I do not have a lot of experience in using streaming services, I am not sure what I should look for, but being able to find programing that I like to watch and having it run with good video and audio is a good sign.

They have a number of television stations and the program runs fairly well on any given day.

I do not have any complaints or suggestions for the company to improve its current operations for the app. It is good overall.

A lot of variety in different sport channels. It is easy to use and has great customer service. I would like to see more local channels though and a decrease in monthly cost.

Their sports coverage is good, except they do not carry stations that have March Madness.

They abide by their special rates, but could lower it some more for people on fixed incomes. They do show good movies and shows, but could be updated some. I would definitely recommend it to others. It's definitely worth your money, but needs to update movies more. I would like it if they would run free specials from time to time. As an overall experience, I would have to say I'm satisfied with the services and the customer service.

It's easy to use, and there are a lot of programs available to choose from, and they are divided by genre for ease of selection. I would recommend this app. I have a couple of apps, but I prefer this because of the selection of programs.

It has a number of shows and movies I like. It is a good price for what I watch.
