FuboTV To Add Live Baseball Coverage To Lineup
FuboTV Inc., the leading sports-first live TV streaming platform, has announced a partnership with MLB.TV to add live baseball coverage to its lineup.
The addition of MLB.TV will provide Fubo with the most comprehensive baseball coverage available on any streaming platform, making it the go-to destination for baseball fans.
MLB.TV is set to launch on Fubo in the coming days, just in time for Major League Baseball’s Opening Day on March 30.
With this addition, Fubo will be able to offer customers access to MLB Network, MLB Strike Zone, regional sports networks (RSNs), local broadcast networks, and national sports networks ESPN and FS1.
Commenting on the partnership, Fubo co-founder and CEO, David Gandler, said: “With today’s MLB.TV partnership, Fubo now offers the most baseball coverage of any streaming company, on top of our already leading position for local sports coverage and our robust NFL and college sports packages.”
“Customers continue to vote for Fubo – we added more net subscribers in Q4 2022 compared to our peers in the space who reported – because of our sports-first differentiation delivered through a premium user experience. We are more confident than ever in our market position and believe that consumers will continue to choose Fubo as we head into baseball season,” he said.
MLB EVP of media and business development, Kenny Gersh, added: “As a pioneer in sports streaming and the home of streaming baseball, MLB.TV has always focused on delivering world-class viewing experiences for baseball fans.”
“We’re excited to partner with Fubo to expand the reach of MLB.TV and bring all the action from across Major League Baseball to Fubo subscribers this season,” he said.
Fubo customers will be able to add MLB.TV to their existing channel plan for US$24.99/month, providing them with access to every out-of-market MLB game live.
Customers will also be able to stream games on demand via Fubo’s Lookback feature.
