Fanatiz launches redesign and addition of Android TV app

Soccer streaming service Fanatiz has been busy during the lull in professional soccer.

Featuring a catalog of live sports including LaLiga, Ligue 1, Copa Libertadores and more, Fanatiz has completed a redesign of its website, a brand-new look for its brand, and a different product offering that includes a freemium version offering Real Madrid TV and Sevilla TV, among other channels.

Launched in 2017, Fanatiz has been a reliable streaming service offering the best of Latin American soccer to viewers in the United States and beyond. Over the years, the streaming service has expanded its content. Initially, Fanatiz included soccer from Argentina, Chile, Peru and Mexico. Since then, the soccer OTT service has expanded to include all of the beIN SPORTS channels as well as GolTV and TyC Sports Internacional.

With all of the changes, Fanatiz is still the most cost-effective streaming service for soccer with the added benefit of including all of the beIN SPORTS channels (including beIN SPORTS Connect). For frustrated Comcast and DirecTV customers who are unable to watch LaLiga, Fanatiz is an option worth considering.

And with today’s announcement plus the news that soccer games from Portugal, Spain and Turkey are returning, Fanatiz has announced more enhancements to its service including:

• Freemium offering — Includes Real Madrid TV, Sevilla TV, For The Fans, Todo Noticias and XTF.

• Availability on Android TV — Android TV app joins the other devices previously available including PC/Mac, iOS phone/tablet, Android phone/tablet, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Apple TV, and

• Redesign/revamp – All of the Fanatiz apps and website include a complete redesign featuring easier-to-use navigation and improved design.

Fanatiz offers a 7-day free trial. After the trial, pricing is $7.99 per month. Or you can save with the annual plan of $79.99/year.

Fanatiz, which has an office in Miami, is available in many countries, and features one famous customer in particular who is an avid soccer fan.

“We have customers in more than 70 countries including Pope Francis from the Vatican who watches his team San Lorenzo using Fanatiz. It’s one of our fun facts as a business,” explained Fanatiz founder and chief executive Matias Rivera.

Speaking of the bigger picture, Rivera added that Fanatiz is focused on delivering a cost-effective streaming service that delivers a specific need.

“We’re always motivated by solving the problem of people who want to watch the content they love and who are not able to do so. And that was a driving mission for the creation of Fanatiz several years ago.”

    I downloaded the android TV app to my Sony this morning. However, the picture is not as good as the fubo app’s picture on my TV.

    It mentions on the website the the 72 hour playback is available. Is it applicable to all channels ?

    • Monte Reed

      Yes, all matches have 72 hour playback except for SuperLiga Argentina which had playback for the entire season (currently from October 2019 to present)

            I learned something new today. Fanatiz explained that GolTV video-on-demand is not available. They air VOD from beIN SPORTS, TyC Sports, Real Madrid TV and Sevilla TV.

              Hi Christopher, do you know if matches that air on the beIN Connect channels are available on demand? I wanted to watch a replay of the Fenerbahce match from today which aired originally on Connect but don’t see it on demand. Replays for the La Liga matches from beIN and beIN Espanol seem to go up pretty quick.

                Go to the “Calendar” tab, select “results”. I selected the match and had to fast forward to get to the start of the match.

    Still no DVR ?

      No DVR yet but the CEO talks about it in the interview (the audio is embedded into the article above). With the video-on-demand available for almost all of the games, it makes the need for a DVR not as great as it was before.

    I have not been able to find the Android TV app yet, hopefully it will be available soon. But the web site is awesome!! I noticed that they added a “My Team” section on the web site that includes schedule of my favorite teams.

      With Fanatiz now compatible with Android TV, it means that if you own a Sony, Sharp, Skyworth, Nvidia, Xiaomi, JBL, Hisense or Philips device, you can download the app directly to your Smart TV.
