Pricing and plans for fuboTV
Sometimes a week isn’t enough to know whether or not you want to commit to a streaming service. fuboTV is running a promotion where new subscribers get the first two months for $19.99 a month, which is a good opportunity to do a deeper dive and see how much you like the service. Once that promotional period ends, the subscription price jumps to $39.99 a month, so you could always cancel before that happens.
Before you commit to anything, make sure to look at fuboTV’s channel list. You’ll notice it has most of the essentials covered, like FX, History Channel, Food Network, USA, and more, but it also has lots of unique sports coverage. Let’s just say if you’re also a soccer fan, there’s a lot to chew on here.
Watching FX with fuboTV
You may have never heard of fuboTV, but it offers a streaming quality that rivals bigger names like DIRECTV NOW and Sling TV. There is a catch, however; you absolutely need to have a strong internet speed with this service.
To get a solid stream with fuboTV, we say aim for at least 50 Mbps. We bring that up because we tested it with a fast internet speed (90 Mbps), and the stream was excellent, but then we tested it with a lower internet speed (30 Mbps), and the difference was huge. The lower internet speed resulted in much laggier and fuzzier streaming quality. Fast internet speed is the key to watching FX with fuboTV.
With your subscription, you get 30 hours of cloud DVR storage. That means you can record American Horror Story, Fargo, and The Americans and enjoy the episodes later. To give you an idea of how that storage space, a season of American Horror Story takes about 12 hours. The 30 hours fills up more quickly than you might think, so you can pay an additional $9.99 a month and get 500 hours of storage, which should last you a nice long while.
