As well as the recent addition of Showtime channels, the legal streaming provider fuboTV has added more channels to its growing list of offerings, which now includes BBC America, AMC and more.
BBC America, AMC, Sundance, IFC and WEtv have all been added to the fuboTV Premier package, which is available to new subscribers for $19.99 for the first month following a free 7-day trial. The offering will bring fuboTV viewers access to some of TV’s most popular and critically-acclaimed shows, including AMC’s The Walking Dead, which remains the biggest show on television in its eighth season, as well as the award-winning Better Call Saul and the highly-anticipated upcoming series The Terror; BBC America’s Planet Earth natural history franchise, Doctor Who and the upcoming Killing Eve; IFC’s Brockmire and Documentary Now!; SundanceTV’s Hap and Leonard and WE tv’s newest hit series Love After Lockup and the all-new Bridezillas. BBC World News will later be made available to fuboTV subscribers as part of a pending premium package.
In addition to the news about BBC America and AMC, fuboTV has launched v4.0 of its Android app, which is now available in the Google Play Store. New features that are part of this upgrade include: A complete design overhaul and enhanced user interface, improved content discovery, new electronic program guide (EPG), My Fubo (a central location for viewers to manage what they watch), stream and schedule Cloud DVR recordings and “continue watching” (the new Startover feature). The new Startover feature is available on the Android app, as well as iOS, web and Apple TV. It allows a viewer who is tuning in late to a live game or TV show to catch up from the very beginning, so they don’t have to miss a second (for select channels, with more to come).
fuboTV hasn’t stopped there either. The popular legal sports streaming service has upgraded its Roku app. Some of the key new features of this version (2.5) include:
• The ability to continue watching VOD content from where you left off.
• New EPG with 7-day lookahead, and
• Updated network pages.
Last but not least, fuboTV has updated its Apple TV app too. The new features include:
• Enhanced EPG (electronic programming guide) featuring a new vertical design with the ability to look up to seven days ahead,
• Network Pages that allow viewers to surf content via the EPG/Channel view, but also the new Network view, by selecting a network of their choice and seeing all of its available Live & VOD content. (Note that in addition to Apple TV, this feature is also now available via the web.), and
• New Player UI with Play/Pause that gives viewers the ability to pause live streams and resume at any point.
