fuboTV expands ability to authenticate apps
fuboTV added support to more TV Everywhere apps and websites for the second time in a month.
Viceland and the National Geographic channels are now among more than 30 channels that you can authenticate with your fubo Premier subscription.
The latest roster of app authentication was announced on Thursday, roughly four weeks after fuboTV expanded its app lineup to include 14 networks. The sports-centered platform now has slightly more TV Everywhere support than Sling TV.
Subscribers can now use their fuboTV account to log into websites and apps for live TV and on-demand programs.
The apps bring an added value for fuboTV subscribers because many network apps and websites have exclusive content.
Sports fans can use Fubo credentials to watch programming that is exclusive to other apps, including NASCAR and soccer bonus feeds as well as live events from the Big East Digital Network on FOX Sports GO.
Fox Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) are available through FOX Sports GO.
This list includes fuboTV’s TV Everywhere destinations (affiliated apps are in parentheses).

fuboTV to add Golf Channel, NBC Sports to TV Everywhere roster
fuboTV also expects to add TV Everywhere destinations for Golf Channel and NBC Sports nationally along with NBC Sports RSNs in select markets in the future. Fubo subscribers already had access to beIN SPORTS CONNECT, the TV Everywhere service from beIN SPORTS, including overflow channels that carry sports programming beyond the network’s traditional, linear channels.
Fubo recently launched a 64 channel bundle called fubo Premier, offering it at a discounted introductory rate of $34.99 per month. Subscribers also get a mobile app, on-demand movies and cloud DVR via fubo.tv. The live streaming service is available on all major streaming devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV devices.
The company started as a sports first platform, but has spent much of 2017 expanding into entertainment based channels like Bravo and National Geographic.
The company still boasts that its channel lineup has “more sports-focused services than any competitor’s entry-level package – including local team coverage through RSNs from Fox Networks Group and NBCUniversal,” according to a statement announcing the latest TV Everywhere apps. But fuboTV still doesn’t have ESPN, which has been taking its licks from cord cutting lately.
Fubo Premier is available with no long-term contract and has a free seven-day trial.
