fuboTV, the US OTT service, is launching fubo Sports Network on The Roku Channel, further expanding distribution of the live, free-to-consumer TV network for sports fans.
Sports fans can catch fubo Sports Network’s event coverage, news, behind-the-scenes and exclusive programming on The Roku Channel, Roku’s home for free and premium entertainment. In addition to The Roku Channel, fubo Sports Network is also available on XUMO, smart TV platforms Samsung TV Plus and LG Channels powered by XUMO, and in fuboTV’s Standard base package. Additional distribution partners will be announced.
Soft launched in June, fubo Sports Network marks the first time live TV streaming service fuboTV has developed a channel for distribution off of its platform. Talent-driven original programming – the first time fuboTV has produced content – will launch on fubo Sports Network in the coming weeks.
“We are thrilled to bring fubo Sports Network to The Roku Channel, further expanding on our broad partnership with Roku,” Min Kim, vice president, business development, fuboTV. “The early interest in fubo Sports Network from distribution partners who see value in exclusive sports programming has been truly gratifying. We are building the best new talent-driven sports network, and we look forward to getting it in front of audiences everywhere.”
