In November, fuboTV added national ABC feeds in 100 markets across the country, while they expand their reach of local affiliates. While fuboTV still maintains their timezone-corrected East, Central, Mountain, and West ABC national feeds in some markets, they’ve looked to add more local affiliates to their service. The national feeds won’t give local news, but you can still watch your favorite nationally-televised ABC programming, like The Bachelor, Good Morning America, and live sports like NBA basketball and NCAA college football.
Last December, fuboTV announced they'd solved a dispute with Nexstar to bring back CBS affiliates, and the two companies seem to be in agreement since their two-and-a-half-month spat last year.
