fuboTV has announced details about their 2018 FIFA World Cup programming, which will live include FOX, FS1, Telemundo and Universo — the four networks in the United States that have the exclusive rights to broadcast the World Cup games — plus several other additions that soccer fans will love.
Most newsworthy, fuboTV will also include bonus feeds integrated directly into the legal streaming platform. fuboTV will offer five bonus feeds for each of the FIFA World Cup games on FOX and FS1. There will be two sets of feeds for a total of 10, to account for the overlap of games and simultaneous games for the last day of group stage.
The bonus feeds offered on fuboTV (in addition to FOX, FS1 and Telemundo) are:
• Team Channels: FOX Sports will produce a country-specific experience encompassing three live video feeds (match simulcast, player & coach/bench) as well as real-time, team-vs-team stats. All feeds are synced to provide concurrent views of the action from various angles of the pitch.
• Match 360 (before and after the game): A behind-the-scenes look two hours before each match kickoff that chronicles everything from team bus arrivals to warm-ups before the match. Once the game starts, Match 360 will switch to Tactical View.
• Tactical View: Positioned high above one of the goals, this view shows all 22 players on the pitch and reveals the shape of the offense and defense of both nations; at the end of the match, coverage switches to on-field post-match interviews, followed by both team press conferences.
• Cable Cam: Suspended over the pitch, offers a unique view of the action.
• Highlights: Provides a constant loop of highlights and significant plays as they happen; shown from multiple angles, including super slo-motion replay.
All of the above bonus feeds are DVR-able via fubo if you want to watch them later. Plus, many of the feeds contain the natural audio (i.e. without the FOX Sports commentary).
