Deciding whether fuboTV is the right live TV streaming service is likely to come down to the selection of channels included in a subscription. However, fuboTV offers more than one plan and the different packages include different channels. Before you do sign up, it’s important to know what channels come with each of the main plans to ensure you find the right fuboTV subscription for you.
Understanding the differences between the various fuboTV plans can be complicated at first, as while there are not many packages, there are a lot of channels and some of them are only available as add-ons. This guide will not only list every channgel included with the main US plans, but also highlight every channel included with all of the various add-ons.

What is fuboTV?
However, fuboTV has always come with an emphasis on sports. While that emphasis still exists, the channel lineup has evolved over the years to be more similar to other live TV streaming services, resulting in a fuobTV that’s now suitable to even more consumers.
In spite of the non-sports channel expansion, anyone heavily into sports, and wanting access to as many sports channels as possible, fuboTV remains the best option overall. Although, those only interested in sports content that’s usually shown on channels like NBC and Fox Sports may find they’re better off opting for a different service, considering these channels are readily available.
Previously, access to ESPN was one of the major stumbling blocks for sports fans considering fuboTV, but that has now changed. In August of 2020, fuboTV added a selection of Disney and ESPN channels to its plans and add-ons.
fuboTV plans explained
Previously, fuboTV only offered one main plan – the fubo Standard plan, priced at $54.99 per month with the options of upgrading the Standard plan to a richer plan. However, the service has since removed the Standard plan and this now means that anyone signing up for fuboTV today will primarily be expected to choose between eitther the Family or Ultra plans.
While these plans differ in the selection of channels, there is no difference in the cloud DVR experience or the number of simultaneous streams. fuboTV does also offer a Spanish language TV package, fubo Latino.
Officially, fubo states that the Family plan provides access to around 108 channels, while the Ultra plan increased the channel count to 190.
While that sounds like a lot for the entry-level Family plan, there are multiple beIN Sports, Pac-12 Networks, and TUDN channels included with the plan. Therefore, if you are not interested in sports overall, the number of different channels you get will feel like a lot less than the official number.
The same is true with the Ultra package. While this officially increases the number of channels from 108 to 190, the same selection of additional sports-focused channels are included. However, this package does include Showtime, as well as the fubo Extra and Sports Plus add-ons, which is what takes the channel count up to 190.
fuboTV Family and Ultra channels comparison
The Ultra plan includes every channel available with the Family plan. Therefore, the difference between the two packages comes down to the additional channels included with the fubo Extra and Sports Plus add-ons. In theory, a Family plan subscriber could simply add these additional channel packs at any time and create their own version of the Ultra plan. Although that would work out more expensive than the Ultra plan, considering fuboTV offers the two add-ons at a discounted bundle rate with Ultra.

Best fuboTV alternatives
fuboTV does lean heavily on sports and this makes it a particularly good live TV streaming service for those interested in sports channels and networks not typically available with other live TV streaming services.
However, subscribers less keen on sports, or those who don’t need access to every sports channel imaginable, it is likely that one of the other live TV streaming services might be a better option overall.
Going with another live TV service might not only save the consumer money each month, but it could also provide a more suitable channel lineup. In some cases, subscribers might end up with both better channels and at a lower price.
Most popular alternatives to fuboTV:
- AT&T TV NOW
- Hulu + Live TV
