    New England Revolution supporter here subscribing to Fubo. I considered switching to YouTube TV (both carry NBCSports Boston and YTTV slightly cheaper), but thanks to this comparison chart will stick with Fubo. Does anyone know what other streaming services carry NBCSports Boston?

    I feel as if YTTY + Fubo Latino would be a winner for most people.

      Sorry YTTV

    What about streaming services in Canada that include the Bundesliga plus some other Europian Soccer? As for other coverage we would only be interested in Bundesliga but if nothing was available on any particular day, we would watch other leagues. When I have had a services, we could not get the teams in the Bundesliga that we were most interested. I do not want to use a service that asks for a credit card and establishing a betting account. I would appreciate a reply from those who have good information on getting the Bundesliga.

      Hi Samuelette, unfortunately all of the info we have is focused on the US, so we don’t have info on the services available in Canada.

    This does not even mention the blackouts for national televised games. Not sure how its less cost when you must pay for multiple streaming services. I have also found that ESPN+ and fuboTV to have crappy streaming services.

      I have had the complete opposite experience with ESPN+ and have found their streaming quality top notch.

        ESPN+ has been great for me. No issues with streaming at all. fuboTV had a ton of issues when I did the trial. Constant buffering and picture quality changes.

    And finally, all Serie A games are on ESPN+

      ESPN+ doesn’t carry the one match of the week aired on ESPN, ESPN2, or ESPNews

    Also Serie A is not on fubo (it doesn’t have ESPN)

    • JP

      October 30, 2018 at 6:40 am

      It has RAI which shows a few Serie A matches a week

        DTVN (and I assume fubo) have complete CL coverage via the Univision deportes site.

    YouTube TV has a partial Champions League schedule (TNT is included.)

      And, at least here in NYC, YTTV also has Telemundo.
