Fubo TV Practical review

Paushali Banerjee | Streaming Expert

I rate FuboTV a 9.6 on 10. The 0.4 point deducted is because FuboTV plans are somewhat more expensive than other streaming services. Although the competitors are lately increasing their prices. 

 

Whatever you're looking for, FuboTV is a terrific live TV streaming service, but it's perfect for sports enthusiasts. If you're ready to pay for the service's costly membership, it will keep you up to date on all of your favorite teams as well as non-sports information, with a robust feature list to make your life easier. 

 

The interface on FuboTV is clean and well-designed, and it includes 250 hours of Cloud DVR. However, it lacks PBS access, so if you're a big Masterpiece fan, YouTube TV might be a better option. 

 

Your device must support 4K resolution (and maybe HDR10), and you must have a high-speed internet connection to stream 4K content.

Features:

User Interface:

 

The UI of Fubo is sleek and well-designed. Though not quite as nice as Philo's UI, the black, grey, and white color scheme is more appealing than YouTube's simple, practical design. Live sports, 4K on Demand, Live Sports, Popular movies, and Popular shows are all aspects of the Home tab. 

 

It has a clean, easy-to-navigate design which makes finding material by genre simple. In addition, you can use filters to find the shows you don't want to miss.

 

DVR

 

The DVR options on FuboTV are simple to use, and the service keeps recordings for as long as you have a subscription. With up to 1,000 hours of DVR storage, fuboTV's Cloud DVR choices can help if you have a hectic schedule.

 

FuboTV Free Trial:

 

FuboTV Free Trial allows you to try out the service before committing to a subscription. It offers a one-week free trial period. 

 

Lookback:

 

Lookback features of FuboTV packages that allow consumers to watch episodes and sports games up to 72 hours after they first aired. So if you neglect to record something ahead of time, this gadget will come in handy.

 

Compatible with ExpressVPN:

 

 If you are someone who often travels outside of the United States, you can continue watching your favorite shows on FuboTV with ExpressVPN. Still, fuboTV is already available in Canada and Spain.

 

Compatible with various devices:

 

FuboTV is available on the web, Android and iOS, and media streaming devices such as the Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, and Roku. Unfortunately, game consoles are not supported natively.

 

What features does FuboTV lack?

 

Parental Control:

 

FuboTV does not have parental controls, which is frustrating because many on-demand videos may be improper for specific populations.

Conclusion

Fubo is a good alternative for cord-cutters who want to cut the cord on cable. If you want to save money, try Sling or Philo, but keep in mind that you won't get access to as many networks.   However, if your favorite channels are exclusively available on Fubo, it could be the most exemplary cable replacement service for you. Or try out FuboTV free trial before making the final decision.
