FuboTV, one of the best over-the-top services for sports enthusiasts, is finally arriving on newer LG Smart TVs.
While the app was already available on many set-top boxes, such as the Apple TV or Chromecast, it is now available on LG’s native webOS platform on 2018-2021 Smart TV models (including LG’s fantastic OLEDs). That gives all consumers with newer LG models the ability to access the service’s more than 100 sports and entertainment channels directly from their sets, rather than having to rely on a third-party device for access.
“More than 90 percent of FuboTV’s viewership is on the big screen, and today’s launch on LG Smart TVs expands FuboTV to even more smart and connected TV platforms,” said Mike Berkley, FuboTV’s Chief Product Officer. The edge.
Starting at $65 per month, FuboTV offers one of the most robust catalogs of sports-specific programming, although it also has many entertainment and news channels in it. ESPN, ESPN 2, Olympic Channel, CBS Sports Network, Big Ten Network, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, and beIN Sports channels are among the channels available at the basic level of the service.
But FuboTV really shines with its sports package add-ons, which offer more diversity in additional sports channels than similarly priced live TV services like Hulu with Live TV or YouTube TV. That said, regional sports networks are: fairly limited, but that is a persistent problem that tease almost all OTT live streaming services – not just FuboTV.
LG Smart TV users can now easily record an entire series with a single click, customize their guide with their favorite channels and add up to six user profiles, each supporting personalized recommendations and user-specific recordings.
Unfortunately, one of FuboTV’s best features, the MultiView tool that supports up to four simultaneous channel streams at once, is still limited to the Apple TV, a spokesperson said. The edge. But hey, at least you can use the app on your lovely LG OLED without the help of a third-party box, stick or dongle.
