fuboTV is becoming more and more popular and it seems that subscribers managed to watch over 3 billion minutes of programming throughout the year’s second quarter. Not only is the number impressive, but it’s also a 200% spike over the same period of 2018.
Although fuboTV was created with sports fans in mind and there are dozens of dedicated channels on the platform, it was actually the entertainment content that was the most watched. According to fuboTV’s report, entertainment programming accounted for 42% of content watched in June, which is twice more than it was watched back in the same month of 2018. Sports content accounted for 38% of content watched, and news and talk shows followed up with 20%.
Connected TV usage is also the largest driver of overall viewership as subscribers watch fuboTV on larger screens as they depend on the platform to replace the cable. fuboTV claims 90% of hours watched were on connected TVs in June 2019
“With our subscribers watching over three billion minutes of programming last quarter, fuboTV’s expanded content offering and our industry-leading commitment to a premium viewing experience has clearly resonated with consumers,” said David Gandler, co-founder and CEO, fuboTV. “This is great news not only for fuboTV but also for the virtual MVPDs industry as a whole. Cord cutters have clearly found a better alternative to cable TV.”
fuboTV only features one bundle of channels nowadays, going for $54.99 per month. Subscribers can customize their plans by adding loads of extra packs and quite a few premium networks. For those who want more complex offerings, there are a few bundled up deals.
