CBS content for fuboTV
June 22, 2017
fuboTV, the sports-first streaming TV service in the US, has announced a new agreement with CBS Corporation to carry CBS, America’s most watched broadcast network, and the Network’s popular sports and entertainment channels, including CBS Sports Network, The CW, Pop and CBSN, CBS News’ 24/7 digital streaming news service. All networks in the deal will be available to stream live, with much of their programming available on demand as well, through fuboTV’s entry-level “Fubo Premier” bundle.
The multichannel, live TV streaming service will also offer subscribers the ability to stream CBS-owned television stations in some of the largest US markets at launch. Later this summer, customers will be able to stream CBS-owned The CW affiliates. Plus, all affiliates of CBS and The CW will have the opportunity to participate.
In addition, SHOWTIME will be offered as an add-on, premium subscription service to those customers who subscribe to Fubo Premier.
“fuboTV is proving every day that it can compete in the big leagues, and we are pleased we can bring CBS Sports’ powerhouse big events and live television programming, plus America’s #1 network and other popular channels, to their customers whenever and wherever they want to watch it, while meeting our economic and strategic goals,” said Ray Hopkins, President, Television Networks Distribution, CBS Corporation. “As these new players continue to come on the scene, it’s the must-have content that will thrive, and fuboTV clearly understands the value we bring to their service.”
