Scripps networks -- HGTV, Food Network and Travel Channel -- will join the service’s entry-level bundle, fubo Premier. It has an introductory rate of $34.99 per month (regularly $49.99) for more than 60 networks’ live, linear feeds as well as on-demand content.
Scripps’ DIY Network and Cooking Channel will be made available on fubo Premier as part of an add-on option at a later date.
Recently, fubo Premier added five channels from CBS Corp.-- the CBS Television Network, CBS Sports Network, The CW, Pop and CBSN. Subscribers will also be able to stream CBS-owned TV stations. Showtime will be added as part of an add-on option.
The company also carries channels from Fox Networks Group, NBCUniversal, NBA TV, A&E Networks, Crown Media Family Networks, Fuse Media and The Weather Channel.
To date, it does not have a deal with any Disney-ABC networks, according to its Web site.
Fubo began as a streaming TV soccer service in January 2015. The company says it is a “sports-first streaming TV service” — of the 60 channels in fubo Premier, 34 are sports. In June 2016, fuboTV said it had 71,170 customers.
Some of fuboTV investors include 21st Century Fox, Sky UK and Scripps Networks Interactive, Univision Communications, Edgar Bronfman, Jr. (former Chairman and CEO of Warner Music Group), Chris Silbermann (founding partner, ICM Partners) and former NBA Commissioner David Stern.
