fuboTV to Launch Free Ad-Supported Service, Create Original Content

By Gabriela Vatu / May 10, 2019

fuboTV is full of surprises and will launch a free ad-supported streaming service later this year. Not only that, but they'll also start making original content about the same time.

The statements come from David Gandler, fuboTV CEO, who told The Wrap that this new version of fuboTV could help bring more profits to the company. According to his statements, the launch will take place around the third or fourth quarter of 2019 and it will be a bit smaller and more straightforward than the current bundles they offer.

Plus, during the third quarter, fuboTV plans to launch a new type of ad-break called "Sports Break" that will feature short-form original content between two regular ads. Plus, any new original content is likely to show up on the platform's existing channels, called fubo Cycling and fuboTV Network.

We've reached out to fuboTV for more comments, but they have nothing official to share yet beyond Gandler's statements. We'll make sure to keep you updated on this topic as things progress.

fuboTV currently features a single bundle of channels, but you can add loads more content by picking out channel packs or premium networks.

With this move, fuboTV would be following in the footsteps of other free and ad-supported platforms that allow users to watch various TV channels, including Pluto TV or Xumo.
