fuboTV out of beta on Roku
December 18, 2017
Sports-focused live streaming TV service fuboTV has officially come out of Beta on Roku. Users on the connected TV platform will now experience a new design, as well as an added entertainment section with on-demand, upgraded video control and cloud DVR.
fuboTV’s new product design upgrade includes new features, faster navigation, and a fresh user interface and user experience.
- CLOUD DVR: Subscribers using Roku can now record live games, movies and shows, access personal cloud DVR recordings made on other devices and watch recordings set on Roku on other devices. The recently upgraded fuboTV DVR provides up to 30 hours of personal storage with no expiration, as well as the ability to purchase an add-on option that includes up to 500 hours.
- ENTERTAINMENT ON DEMAND: Roku users can stream more than 10,000 hours of sports talk, popular series, blockbuster movies, and more. This includes top shows from CBS, FOX, NBC, and many others. Additionally, with fuboTV’s Lookback feature, viewers can replay shows that aired in the last 72 hours.
- UPGRADED VIDEO CONTROL: New controls for on-demand and recorded shows are now live including the ability to scrub to any point in the video and snap 15 seconds into the past or future with a click.
- NEW UI and UX: fuboTV has been completely redesigned to improve usability and aesthetics. Some features include the promotion of featured events and live games and creating a designated home for Movies and Series, giving viewers the ability to more quickly access the content they desire. The user experience has been enriched by new features and metadata, embedded smoothly in overlays and designated landing pages to reduce the cognitive load. In addition to that, animations and improved event images were added to grant the app a more modern feel.
The upgrade sees fuboTV officially out of Beta – with its new UI and UX design – on Roku, Apple TV (tvOS), Chromecast, iOS and Android devices, desktop and mobile web.
