fuboTV is Bringing Their Live TV Streaming Service to VIZIO Smart TVs
fuboTV has reached a deal with VIZIO to bring their Live TV Streaming Service to select VIZIO SmartCast TVs later this year. With the addition of VIZIO, fuboTV will now be available on all three major Smart TV platforms from VIZIO, LG, and Samsung.
fuboTV added Samsung Smart TV support launched in 2019 and brought the service to LG Smart TVs in June 2021. Prior to that, they added support for Xbox in mid-2020.
fuboTV will be available on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Chromecast, Xbox, Samsung, VIZIO, LG Smart TV devices. This leaves just PlayStation as the only platform without support for the streaming service.
fuboTV's VIZIO Smart TV App is expected to have many of the features that fuboTV subscribers will be used to.
- Profiles: up to six users within a subscription can personalize their fuboTV experience. Profiles allow each individual user to have their own set of recordings (which never expire), personalized recommendations, and a guide that is unique to their content preferences.
- Customizable Guide: users on the LG Smart TV app will be able to “favorite” channels and move their top selections to the front of their guide.
- Record Series: this “set it and forget it” feature allows users to record an entire series with one click.
- Record Teams: users can keep up with all of their favorite teams without having to worry about missing any of the action. With just one click, users can record all games for a specific team to watch anytime.
