Want to Switch to fuboTV Now That It’s Added ESPN? How It Compares to other Live TV Streaming Services

Jason Gurwin

fuboTV just added Disney-owned networks including ABC, ESPN, Disney Channel, FX, Nat Geo. With the additions, they will include 30 of the Top 35 Cable Channels, more than any other Live TV Streaming Service.

In terms of sports, they are one of the only alternatives that carry NFL Network, NFL RedZone, NBA TV, MLB Network, and NHL Network as part of their service (some require their $6 Extra or $11 Sports Plus add-on). They also are the only service that offers a similar multi-screen (PIP) feature that many streamers love for sports.

If you’re looking to switch to fuboTV, whether for a better channel package or a lower price, we’ve got you covered. We compared channels, DVR, pricing, and plans of Live TV Streaming alternatives like YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, and AT&T TV NOW.

1. fuboTV ($60) vs. YouTube TV ($65)

Channels

For $5 less than YouTube TV, you’ll gain A&E, Hallmark, History, and Lifetime, but you’ll lose Cartoon Network, CNN, TBS, TNT, and truTV.

If you’re a sports fans, fuboTV also has Fox College Sports, NFL Network, NFL RedZone, NHL Network, and Pac-12 Network, which YouTube TV doesn’t offer.

Your biggest loss will be that for now, you’re only going to get ABC if you’re in a major market.

While neither service carries YES Network, Fox Sports West, and Fox Sports Prime Ticket, YouTube TV carries Fox Sports RSNs in select markets which fuboTV does not.

However, fuboTV is one of the only services that carries MSG/MSG+ in New York, NESN in Boston, and AT&T Sportsnet Southwest in Houston – which Hulu doesn’t have.

DVR

  • fuboTV includes a 30 Hour DVR, which can be upgraded to 500 Hour
  • YouTube TV includes an Unlimited DVR.

Max Streams

  • fuboTV includes 2 Simultaneous Streams, but you can add a Third Stream, along with a 500 Hour DVR for $5.
  • YouTube TV includes 3 Simultaneous Streams.

2. fuboTV ($60) vs. Hulu + Live TV ($55)

Channels

In comparison to Hulu + Live TV, you’ll gain AMC, BET, Comedy Central, Hallmark, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network, VH1, and WE tv, but you’ll lose Cartoon Network, CNN, TBS, TNT, and truTV.

Hulu + Live TV is the least expensive service that carries all Fox Sports RSNs including YES Network, Fox Sports West, and Fox Sports Prime Ticket across markets — which fuboTV no longer carries.

Similar to YouTube TV, your biggest loss will be that for now, you’re only going to get ABC if you’re in a major market.

However, fuboTV is one of the only services that carries MSG/MSG+ in New York, NESN in Boston, and AT&T Sportsnet Southwest in Houston – which Hulu doesn’t have.

If you’re a sports fans, fuboTV also has Fox College Sports, MLB Network, NBA TV, NFL Network, NFL RedZone, NHL Network, and Pac-12 Network, which Hulu + Live TV doesn’t offer.

DVR

  • fuboTV includes a 30 Hour DVR, which can be upgraded to 500 Hours, plus a third stream for $5.
  • Hulu includes 50 Hour DVR (but you can’t skip ads), can upgrade to 200 hour DVR for $9.99 a month, which includes the ability to fast-forward through ads.

Max Streams

  • fuboTV includes 2 Simultaneous Streams, but you can add a Third Stream, along with a 500 Hour DVR for $5.
  • Hulu includes up to 2 Simultaneous Streams, but can upgrade to Unlimited Screens in your home (and 3 on mobile) for $9.99 a month.

3. fuboTV ($60) vs. AT&T TV NOW Max ($80)

Channels

By switching to fuboTV, you’ll gain A&E, AMC, Discovery, Food Network, HGTV, History, Investigation Discovery, Lifetime, TLC, Travel Channel, and WE tv, but you’ll lose Cartoon Network, CNN, TBS, TNT, and truTV.

Both services carry MSG, MSG+, NESN, NBC Sports RSNs, and AT&T Sportsnet Southwest.

If you’re a sports fans, fuboTV also has MLB Network, NBA TV, NFL Network, NFL RedZone, and NHL Network, which Hulu doesn’t offer.

The biggest advantage to AT&T TV NOW is that they have some hard-to-get Regional Sports Networks, including Fox Sports RSNs, MASN, AT&T Sportsnet Rocky Mountain, and AT&T Sportsnet Pittsburgh.

But, in order to get your local RSN, you will need to splurge for their $80 Max Plan — which makes fuboTV a no brainer over AT&T TV NOW if they carry your local sports.

DVR

  • fuboTV includes a 30 Hour DVR, which can be upgraded to 500 Hours, plus a third stream for $5.
  • AT&T TV NOW Includes 500 Hour DVR.

Max Streams

  • fuboTV includes 2 Simultaneous Streams, but you can add a Third Stream, along with a 500 Hour DVR for $5.
  • New AT&T TV NOW subscribers get 3 Simultaneous Streams (legacy ones get 2 stream and can add a third for $5)
