fuboTV is finally bringing in Disney Media Networks to its platform. The deal includes all ESPN networks, ABC, Disney Channel, Freeform, FX, Nat Geo, and more. The channels will be available this summer.

For many years, since the launch of fuboTV, there has been one major deal missing from the collection - that with Disney networks. Since fuboTV was originally a sport-oriented platform, the fact that ESPN was missing from the list stood out like a sore thumb. Also, while the network featured the likes of Fox, NBC, CBS, and The CW but ABC was missing from the list.

The deal is particularly important for sports fans, however, thanks to the vast collection of dedicated networks. Now, thanks to the addition of ESPN, fuboTV has 100% coverage of NFL events through ESPN, CBS, Fox, NBC, NFL Network, and NFL Redzone, 100% coverage of tennis through ESPN and Tennis Channel and more, including college football, MLB, NBA, NHL, soccer, and so on.

With the addition to our lineup of the ESPN suite of channels, we continue to make good on our promise to sports fans to be the undisputed home of professional and college sports. fubo is equally delighted to add the storied Disney, ABC, FX and Nat Geo networks to round out a robust programming portfolio for the whole family to enjoy,” said David Gandler, fuboTV Co-founder and CEO, according to a press release.

The complete list of channels heading for fubo Standard is ABC, ABC News Live, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Disney XD, Freeform, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, in-market for SEC Network, and ACC Network, FX, FXX, and National Geographic.

SEC Network, ACC Network, ESPNU, ESPNEWS, ESPN Deportes, FXM, Fox Life, Nat Geo Wild, Nat Geo Mundo, and BabyTV will be added to various other packages on fuboTV. The deal includes live TV and on-demand content.

fuboTV was launched a few years back, and even though it has grown to include dozens of entertainment networks, it continues to be one of the go-to services for sports watching. With numerous customization options available and a competitive price point, fuboTV is one of the best options on the market today.
