Existing fuboTV Subscribers to See Price Hike in February 2023, Raises RSN Fee to Up to $14 with Addition of Bally Sports
Last night, The Streamable reported that fuboTV would be raising the price of its plans by $5 to come in at a new $74.99 per month rate, effective immediately for new users. Now, a fuboTV spokesperson has told The Streamable that the price change will be applied to current subscribers starting in February. Those on the fuboTV Ultimate Plan ($99.99 per month), which has been discontinued for new users, won’t see a price change for now. Current FuboTV subscribers will see new pricing after their first bill following Feb. 6, 2023.
New FuboTV Pricing
- fuboTV Pro: $74.99/mo. (was $69.99)
- fuboTV Elite: $84.99/mo. (was $79.99)
- fuboTV Premier: $94.99/mo. (new plan)
- fuboTV Ultimate: $99.99/mo. (no longer offered)
In addition to the new pricing in the base plan, fuboTV is adjusting its RSN fees, which will see the price go up in most markets. While customers in most locations currently pay $8.99-$11.99 per month for RSN access, they will now be subject to up to a $13.99 monthly RSN fee.
New FuboTV RSN Fee
- 1 RSN in Market: $10.99/mo.
- 2+ RSNs in Market: $13.99/mo.
Fubo says that those who receive a single RSN in their market will be charged $10.99 per month, while those with two or more will pay $13.99 per month. The price change comes as fuboTV is about to add Bally Sports RSNs in the coming weeks.
With Bally Sports being available in many markets across the country, it means that nearly all fuboTV customers will now be subject to an RSN fee. Since it is not optional, those with the Fubo Pro plan will actually pay at least $85.98-88.98 per month (plus fees) even if they don’t watch any Regional Sports Networks.
However, for those who do watch live local sports, fuboTV will still be cheaper than the only other live TV streaming service with many of the same RSNs, DIRECTV STREAM.
Currently, DIRECTV STREAM costs $89.99 per month for their Choice Plan, which includes RSNs, but that will be increasing to $99.99 per month on Jan. 23. If you do want Bally Sports RSNs, you could also consider Bally Sports+, which is $19.99 per month, after a seven-day free trial.
With the change to the pricing, Fubo is making it clear that the service is only for sports fans, despite being without TNT and TBS.
Earlier this week, fuboTV announced that it was ending its carriage deal with AMC Networks, after dropping A+E Networks in mid-2021. With fees, it is now $15-$20 more expensive than YouTube TV and Hulu + Live TV, both of which have a wider range of entertainment channels from Turner, AMC, and A+E, respectively.
Given the focus on sports, it now seems now a matter of when, not if, they will have to add Turner channels to bring TNT, which carries NHL and NBA games, and TBS, which has MLB and March Madness, back to the service.
Fubo is a live TV streaming service with about 90 channels for $74.99/month. This plan includes local channels, 25 of the top 35 cable channels, and regional sports networks (RSNs). In total, you should expect to pay about $85.98/month, after adding in their RSN Fee. Fubo was previously known as “fuboTV.”
Due to a carriage dispute, some areas may not see their local CBS affiliate, but rather a national CBS feed.
The streaming service does not carry channels from WarnerMedia-owned (CNN, TBS, and TNT), A+E (A&E, History Channel, and Lifetime), and AMC Networks (AMC, BBC America, and WE tv).
Fubo also includes MLB Network ， NBA TV ， NFL Network ， NFL RedZone , NHL Network, and beIN Sports (which is not available on most services). You can add Fox Soccer Plus as part of the International Sports Plus add-on for $6/month.
You can add the fubo Extra ($8) to add ~39 channels including Baby TV ， Cooking Channel ， DIY ，和 GSN.
Fubo is a great option for sports fans, especially those who want to stream local sports. They recently announced added Bally Sports RSNs to their channel lineup.
