Subscribers to fuboTV are in for some laughs, hip-shaking, and happy trees as the live TV streaming service has rolled out five new linear FAST (free, ad-supported TV) channels. The streamer is bringing five new channels of feel-good content in the Dove Channel, The Bob Ross Channel, Comedy Dynamics, the Elvis Presley Channel, and RetroCrush.
The five channels come from digital entertainment company Cinedigm and will appear across two tiers of Fubo’s otherwise sports-centric service. The Bob Ross Channel, Comedy Dynamics, and Dove Channel are now featured on fuboTV’s base plan Fubo Pro, while The Elvis Presley Channel and RetroCrush have been added to the Fubo Extra package. The latter two channels are also available as add-o or as part of Fubo’s Elite and Ultimate plans.
“The team at FuboTV has embraced the value of FAST channels, and through this partnership, their subscribers will now have access to some of the strongest, enthusiast-focused streaming brands available,” Cinedigm’s VP of business development and strategy Jennifer Soltesz said. “The explosion of FAST has made it easier than ever for passionate fans to immerse themselves into programming in any genre - from anime to comedy - or featuring the biggest pop culture icons like Bob Ross and Elvis Presley. With FuboTV as a distribution partner, we are able to bring this premium content to Fubo subscribers across North America.”
