Comparing soccer coverage on fuboTV and Sling TV

With the news that fuboTV has significantly expanded its product offering to move from soccer-centric channels to those plus a long list of entertainment and news channels, fuboTV’s legal streaming service is now in the same ballpark as Sling TV.

We already know that fuboTV offers the most comprehensive selection of soccer coverage on any legal streaming platform in the United States, but how does it compare to Sling TV on everything else? We take a closer look in our comparison guide below.

As you can see from the streaming options below, each one has its own pluses and minuses — so what may be a perfect one for you may not interest others depending on which leagues or programs you want to watch.

Also note that the comparison guide below doesn’t list non-soccer-related channels. Each of them has a long list of news, entertainment and children’s networks available. But for the purposes of this comparison guide, we’re focusing on soccer only.
