fuboTV Adds NHL Network and MLB Network to Sports Plus & Fubo Extra Packages
fuboTV announced today that the service has added NHL Network and MLB Network to their Live TV Streaming Service. The channels are included as part of their Sports Plus ($10.99) add-on (which also includes NBA TV, NFL RedZone & Pac-12 Networks), as well as their fubo Extra add-on ($5.99).
MLB Network Strike Zone, the league’s whip-around channel, will be available as part of the Sports Plus plan. While NHL Network is available today, MLB Network will become available in the coming weeks.
The company has been quietly enhancing their Sports Plus and Extra plans with additional content for sports fans. In late February, fuboTV quietly moved NBA TV from their Standard Plan ($54.99) into the Sports Plus and fubo Extra tiers.

For hockey fans, NHL Network broadcasts ~100 non-exclusive games, with additional broadcasts during the pre-season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs. It is also the exclusive some to the annual World Junior Hockey Championships, World Championships, and Memorial Cup. The channel broadcasts a daily live look-in and highlights show called NHL Tonight, simulcasts Sportsnet Hockey Central at Noon, and airs original series and classic games.
MLB Network, which is primarily owned by Major League Baseball, brings more than 150 live games, daily news, highlights, and original programming like MLB Tonight and Hot Stove, as well as classic games and documentaries.
MLB Network Strike Zone is a commercial-free “NFL RedZone” style whip-around channel that includes up-to-the-minute highlights, live look-ins and updates, all commercial-free. The channel is available on Tuesday and Friday nights when live games air on MLB Network.
Earlier this year however, fuboTV dropped 21 Fox Sports RSNs and YES Network, after they couldn’t come to terms with Sinclair. The service has also lost the now Disney-owned channels FX, FXM, FXX, and Nat Geo.
