NESN goes live on fuboTV
New England Sports Network (NESN) and NESN Plus officially went live this past week on fuboTV. The Boston-based network has exclusive coverage to all home games for the Boston Bruins and Boston Red Sox.
Fubo Premier – its base package of 80+ live streaming TV channels. It marks a huge win for New England sports fans, while challenging cable and satellite TV providers across New England.
NESN is now available to fuboTV subscribers in Massachusetts, Connecticut (excluding Fairfield County), Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. fuboTV already has a number of local Boston-area channels in its lineup, including NBC, CBS (WBZ), FOX 25 and NBC Sports Boston.
Subscribers will have the ability to watch NESN live and record games on fuboTV’s cloud-based DVR.
An on-demand feature on fuboTV – called Lookback – will carry recently-aired NESN programming.
Fans will be able to eventually use their fuboTV login and password to access NESN programming via the NESNgo website and apps. Subscribers will also be able to access NESN content via video-on-demand (VOD).
