In what looks to be the first of many of its kind, fuboTV is giving fans a shot at $1,000 by predicting the events of tonight’s CONMEBOL soccer matches.

To win, players will answer in-game questions during each Match to earn points towards prizes. The player(s) with the most points at the end wins. This concept seems fairly similar to DraftKings Sportsbooks’ “Pools,” where players predict what will happen during a particular sporting event and win prizes based on how many questions they got right. While some DraftKings Sportsbook Pools are pay to enter, some are free, just like fuboTV’s will be.
Players can also visit playfubo.com and answer the questions that way.
Back in June 2021, fuboTV launched a beta of its predictive games system, where players could interact with the action on-screen through questions posed by the platform. The system came out of beta just in time for the first set of CONMEBOL matches back in the fall and is back for the second wave as we inch closer to the World Cup.
While fuboTV has leaned heavily into sports betting during the early days of its heavy sports pivot, it looks like it will finally start bringing predictive games to the platform. Fubo owns the exclusive streaming rights to CONMEBOL matches, which may play a part in why they’re doing interactive games for this broadcast, but we could potentially see other challenges in the future revolving around UEFA Nations League or Euro 2024/28 matches, now fuboTV owns the broadcast rights to those tournaments.
fuboTV is a live TV streaming service with about 90 channels for US$ 74.99/month. This plan includes local channels, 25 of the top 35 cable channels, and regional sports networks (RSNs).
Due to a carriage dispute, some areas may not see their local CBS affiliate, but rather a national CBS feed.
The streaming service does not carry channels from WarnerMedia-owned (CNN, TBS, and TNT), A+E (A&E, History Channel, and Lifetime), and AMC Networks (AMC, BBC America, and WE tv).
fuboTV also includes MLB Network, NBA TV, NFL Network, NFL RedZone , NHL Network, and beIN Sports (which is not available on most services). You can add Fox Soccer Plus as part of the International Sports Plus add-on for US$ 6/month.
