fuboTV subscribers can now access and keep tabs on content from the virtual MVPD directly through the Apple TV app.
fuboTV says it’s only the second vMVPD to be integrated with the Apple TV app, making it easier to find and watch sports content including NBA, NHL, English Premier League, La Liga, UEFA, and Pac-12, among others.
With the integration, fuboTV’s on-demand content and live sports will appear in the Watch Now section of the Apple TV app, and shows and movies can be added to the Up Next section. Subscribers can also use Siri to search for fuboTV content, and the streaming TV service provider says single sign-on integration is on the way.
Additional content is slated to launch on the app in coming weeks, including regional sports networks, the company said.
“We’re hyper-focused on delivering the best, most innovative viewing experiences possible as our recent 4K HDR Beta streams demonstrate,” said Min Kim, VP of business development at fuboTV, in a statement. “That’s why we’re excited about the fuboTV integration with the Apple TV app. It’ll allow Apple users to discover that their favorite leagues and matchups are on fuboTV and with the ‘Up Next’ feature, they’ll never miss what’s on. fuboTV subscribers can also find over 10,000 on-demand shows and movies directly in the app.”
fuboTV offers a base package for $45 per month with about 75 channels, and the fubo Extra package featuring about 90 channels for $50 per month. Both include personal cloud DVR storage and two simultaneous streams.
In addition to 30,000 sporting events per year, fuboTV features entertainment and news networks, as well as 10,000 TV series and movies on-demand each month.
The service launched in early 2015 and has raised more than $150 million in funding to date.
