Fubo Sports Network is launching on ViacomCBS’s Pluto TV.
FuboTV, owned by FaceBank Group, launched the live, ad-supported, free-to-consumer TV sports network in September 2019.
The network, which bills itself as “the only full-contact sports network,” is already available on LG Channels, Samsung TV Plus, The Roku Channel, Vizio Channels and Xumo, or as part of FuboTV’s base subscription package of 100-plus sports, news and entertainment channels.
The launch marks FuboTV’s first venture into self-produced original programming and first distribution outside of a FuboTV-owned channel off of its platform. In addition to original programming, it carries live sports and original programming from partners, including USA Today, FanDuel, The Players Tribune, Stadium, VSiN and CampusLore.
Pluto TV delivers 250-plus channels and thousands of on-demand movies in partnership with major TV networks, movie studios, publishers, and digital media companies.
“In challenging times like these, with many live sporting events on hold, our current channel lineup featuring classic live sporting events, news, documentaries/series and sports-themed movies, have proven to be a great alternative for fans in search of what to watch,” said Amy Kuessner, Pluto TV’s senior vice president, content strategy and global partnerships. The Fubo Sports Network will bring “even greater dimension to [Pluto’s] sports programming,” she adds.
