Fubo Sportsbook is available in Arizona (through the Ak-Chin Indian Community), Pennsylvania (through The Cordish Companies), New Jersey and Indiana (through Caesars Entertainment, Inc.), and Iowa (through Casino Queen). The option is expected to begin rolling out state-by-state in the fourth quarter of 2021, as long as they’re able to achieve regulatory approvals in each jurisdiction. Interested users can sign up at fubosportsbook.com.
In an interview during the preview phase, officials with the streaming service said they will allow viewers to look at live stats and then answer quiz questions. Viewers may predict possible outcomes, such as which team will score first, in exchange for a free year of fuboTV. This feature will be accessible on fuboTV’s Roku and Android apps, but it will eventually be an option for Fire TV, iOS, and web users too.

“Our hypothesis is that it’s going to be an engagement driver, but also in the bigger picture, it’s kind of our first step towards our overall gaming strategy,” said Mike Berkley, fuboTV’s chief product officer. “Think of this really as a platform feature, where we can create a more enhanced viewing experience for every kind of content we provide on the platform,” he said at the time.
fuboTV is a live TV streaming service with about 90 channels for US$64.99/month. This plan includes local channels, 27 of the top 35 cable channels, and regional sports networks (RSNs).
fuboTV now has ESPN, Disney Channel, ABC, Nat Geo, FX, FXX, and other Disney-owned channels. The streaming service no longer carries channels from WarnerMedia-owned (CNN, TBS, and TNT) and those from A+E (A&E, History Channel, and Lifetime).
Starting September 2, fuboTV subscribers can seamlessly stream CONMEBOL matches, use FanView to monitor stats and scores next to and under a reduced-size video player, and play free predictive games - all on one screen, using their remote control and without having to switch apps. Both free games and FanView can be toggled on or off, letting consumers choose their live experience.
“fuboTV’s vision to define a new category of interactive sports and entertainment television takes a major step forward with our launch of free games and FanView,” said David Gandler, co-founder and CEO of fuboTV. “We believe this will mark the first time any company has integrated live streaming television, free games, and live stats within the same platform, on the big screen. With free games and our upcoming Fubo Sportsbook real-money wagering app, we intend to deliver a truly interactive streaming experience, one that we expect will improve engagement and retention to fuboTV while also driving advertising revenue.”
