FuboTV adds Fusion TV to its entry-level bundle

FuboTV, which focuses heavily on sports programming, now offers 62 channels with its introductory tier.

Streaming TV service FuboTV has added Fusion TV to its $35-per-month entry-level bundle.

The channel, owned by Univision Communications, joins others owned by the programmer, including Univision, UniMás, UDN, Galavisión and El Rey Network, that are already available on FuboTV. FuboTV, which focuses heavily on sports programming, now offers 62 channels with its introductory tier. For Fubo, the relatively small addition of Fusion TV comes after a busy June for the virtual MVPD, which is competing directly with services including Sling TV, DirecTV Now, YouTube TV and Hulu live TV.

Last month, FuboTV raised another $55 million from venture capital fund Northzone as well as 21st Century Fox, Sky and Scripps Networks Interactive.

“Sports represents prime real estate in the television market, with a massive and engaged audience share, and Fubo has already achieved market-leading coverage of the best live sports content,” said Pär-Jörgen Pärson, partner at Northzone, who is also joining Fubo’s board, in a statement. “[FuboTV CEO] David [Gandler] and his team have achieved incredible growth in the two years since launch, and we are excited to be partnering with Fubo as they take the next steps in building the online live sports experience of the future.”

In the same month, FuboTV signed a crucial distribution agreement with CBS and Showtime, and later added Scripps Networks’ HGTV, Food Network and the Travel Channel to its “Premier” package.

“Our world-class lifestyle content is a perfect complement to the FuboTV service and we are thrilled to partner with a sport-centric OTT service to bring the best in class in home, food and travel programming that will delight and entertain their users,” said Henry Ahn, Scripps Networks Interactive’s president of content distribution and marketing, in a statement. “This carriage deal further validates the ‘must have’ nature of Scripps content in an ever-competitive distribution landscape.”
