FuboTV Announces Programming Available On Fubo Sports Network
FuboTV has launched the fall schedule for its Fubo Sports Network platform that includes "original programming as well as content" from sports media partners like FanDuel, Stadium, The Players Tribune, USA Today and Gravitas Ventures, according to Todd Spangler of VARIETY. FSN is a "linear, free-to-view TV channel" aimed at expanding FuboTV's "revenue base and audience beyond its flagship internet pay-TV service." FSN's lineup will include "talk shows, news programs, and movies -- with just a smattering of live sports, with the free version initially limited to some college football and basketball, pro lacrosse, cycling and horse-racing events." In addition, FuboTV named Pamela Duckworth Dir of FSN & Original Programming. The free FSN is "complementary to FuboTV's main business: selling a sports-focused live TV streaming service, which starts at $54.99 per month for 95 channels." Shows include: "Call It a Night with Julie Stewart-Binks," "Drinks with Binks" and "The Players Lounge with Cobi Jones and PJ Harrison." FSN also will "carry one weekly Sunday-afternoon Liga MX Soccer match English-language broadcast, via a deal with Univision." However, those will be "available only to FuboTV subscribers" (VARIETY.com, 9/9).
