fuboTV acquires Bundesliga Spanish-language online rights in US
In an interesting development for cord cutters during the 2015/16 Bundesliga season, select Bundesliga games each week will be shown live on GolTV en Español. That means that fuboTV subscribers, an online streaming service that doesn’t require a TV subscription, can subscribe to the service and watch Bundesliga matches in Spanish-language without requiring a FOX Soccer 2GO subscription.
As part of the agreement, FOX Sports has sublicensed select Spanish-language rights to GolTV, while FOX Deportes will show other games.
For the opening weekend of the Bundesliga season, the schedule of games that will be shown live on GolTV en Español and fuboTV is as follows:
Saturday, August 15
Werder Bremen vs. Schalke 04, 9:30am ET, GolTV en Español and fuboTV
Borussia Dortmund vs Borussia Monchengladbach, 12:30pm ET, GolTV en Español and fuboTV
Sunday, August 16
Wolfsburg vs. Eintracht Frankfurt, 9:30am, GolTV en Español and fuboTV
For the opening weekend of the season, FOX Deportes (as of press time) is broadcasting two Bundesliga games live, while GolTV en Español is broadcasting three.
As of press time, GolTV en Español has not announced schedules for the other weeks in the season.
With fuboTV’s live access to GolTV en Español as well as beIN SPORTS, beIN SPORTS en Español and more, subscribers will be able to get La Liga, Serie A, select Bundesliga games, Ligue Un, Championship and more.
fuboTV’s Bundesliga coverage will appeal to some fans who want to enjoy a selection of Bundesliga games each week (see updated Bundesliga TV and Internet schedule) instead of paying $100 or more per season for FOX Soccer 2GO.
In addition to select Bundesliga games, fuboTV will carry the weekly Borussia Dortmund programmed called BVB World, which will be available to view on-demand.
fuboTV is currently offering a free 24-hour trial. Note that fuboTV’s pricing will increase to $9.99 per month beginning September 15, so sign up today to the $6.99/month plan to lock in that rate.
