Fubo Sports Network Launches on Pluto TV

fuboTV’s Free 24/7 Linear Sports Channel Now Available on 75+ Million Devices Across Multiple Streaming Platforms

New York(19 May 2020)

FaceBank Group, Inc. (d/b/a fuboTV) (OTCQB: FUBO) announced today the launch of fubo Sports Network, the live, free-to-consumer linear sports network, on Pluto TV, the leading free streaming television service in America.

Sports fans can catch all of fubo Sports Network’s event coverage, news, behind-the-scenes and exclusive programming for free on Pluto TV. The launch makes fubo Sports Network available on over 75 million devices through a robust distribution network which also includes free platforms LG Channels, Samsung TV Plus, The Roku Channel, Vizio Channels and XUMO as well as through fuboTV’s subscription service.

Launched last fall by live TV streaming platform fuboTV, fubo Sports Network marked two “firsts” for the company - original talent-driven programming produced by fuboTV and distribution of a fuboTV-owned channel off of its platform. In addition to its own original programming (No Chill with Gilbert Arenas, Call It A Night with Julie Stewart-Binks, Drinks with Binks and The Cooligans), fubo Sports Network also carries live sports and original programming from partners including USA Today, FanDuel, The Players Tribune, Stadium, VSiN, CampusLore and many more.  

“We’re excited to bring fubo Sports Network to even more sports fans through Pluto TV, the largest free streaming distributor in the country,” said Min Kim, vice president, business development, fuboTV. “Since launching fubo Sports Network less than a year ago, we’ve built a differentiated offering for a dedicated audience who tune in for live games, original sports programming, sports docs and movies. We look forward to bringing Pluto TV fans 24/7 sports coverage on and off the field with a unique point of view.”

“In challenging times like these, with many live sporting events on hold, our current channel lineup featuring classic live sporting events, news, documentaries/series and sports-themed movies, have proven to be a great alternative for fans in search of what to watch,” states Amy Kuessner, Pluto TV’s senior VP, content strategy and global partnerships. “We are incredibly excited to welcome the fubo Sports Network to Pluto TV as it brings even greater dimension to our sports programming and fanfare to all who revel in watching the competitive arena.”
