fuboTV is fairly synonymous with sports as it is one of the live TV services that really focuses on sports access, and especially soccer. Making it a go-to option for many sports fans. Although compared to the other options, the non-sports content has been lacking in the past. This has been changing of late though with fuboTV expanding its available non-sports content, with this latest Turner deal a prime example providing access to more news, entertainment and kids-related content. While also expanding its service to its core sports-focused user base thanks to the inclusion of Turner Sports which in turn will provide greater access to soccer, MLB, NBA, PGA and college sports. This is in addition to a number of other advanced features including cloud DVR and ones which further appeal to sports-focused consumers, such as the ability to watch games that have not been recorded for up to three days after the live transmission.
