Fubo TV just changed a whole lot, and with the new Premier package one can stream all sorts of football/soccer and so much more on Fubo TV. Is it worth the money?
As you might know, I am writing this article in Europe. My main focus of concern if football/soccer, meaning that my main reason for testing Fubo TV is so that I can stream all my favorite football leagues online. There is lots of other content available on Fubo TV as well (Formula 1, Moto GP, Daytona and much more), but I wanted to test Fubo TV to find out whether it is worth spending 35 USD a month to have a Fubo TV Premier subscription.
In February 2017 big changes happened to Fubo TV. They got Fox channels and MSNBC and lots of other channels added to their platform. This did not only increase the amount of content available, but it also increased the prices of the different subscription. For a limited time, the Premium package will cost 35 USD, but it is expected to be raised to 50 USD per month in a couple of months,
What do you get with a Fubo TV Premier subscription?
If you decide to go for the most expensive Fubo TV package (as I have), then you will get access to lots of football for your money. At the moment I can stream the Barclay’s Premier League (England), Champions (England), Ligue 1 (France), La Liga (Spain), Serie A (Italy), Bundesliga (Germany), Primeira Liga (Portugal), MLS (USA), Liga MX (Mexico) and Eredivisie (Netherlands). In addition to stream matches from these leagues, you can also watch matches from the Champions League and the Europe League included with your Fubo TV Premier subscription. So far, so good!
If you take a look at the two screenshots above you can see what it looks like on Fubo TV if you visit the website on a normal day. You will at once see an overview showing what matches/content you can watch at the moment, and some channels also allow you to use the DVR function. The panel is very easy to use, and you can easily swap between the different matches. Since there are lots of channels in the system, you will sometimes be able to watch the same match on different channels. It is also worth noticing that not all matches are shown at all times from all leagues. The top matches are always broadcasted, but there might be some matches lacking, meaning that there is no guarantee that the match in which your favorite team plays will be shown, but hopefully it will!
What about the Fubo TV picture quality? Fubo TV resolution?
I have been using Fubo TV on my computer, on my Apple TV, and on my cell phone. Unfortunately, the Apple TV application is out of date at the moment, meaning that it is slow and doesn’t work that great (not yet optimized for the new Fubo TV Premier package, but probably will be upgraded within shortly), but on both my computer and mobile I got great picture with no buffering. The max resolution at Fubo TV is 1080P, which is a fairly good resolution, meaning that you can enjoy football at high quality and a nice picture giving you all the details.
If you take a look at the three screenshots above you will get a feeling of what the quality is like, but you should just imagine it ten times better. Those who have tried making a screenshot of a moving image/movie/event on your computer will know how hard it is to get a good quality on the image, and that is why the quality might seem a bit poor above. So trust me, the quality you get is much better.
How to watch Fubo TV in Europe?
You might know that Fubo TV is a service only available to people in the USA. That is true, but you can still get access to it in Europe. I am currently using the VPN services of ExpressVPN to stream Fubo TV in Europe, so if you want to give it a try, you can do like me. Notice that you will simply get an error message if you try to visit the Fubo TV website from outside the USA, so you need to use ExpressVPN to even get the Fubo TV website to work from abroad.
My Fubo TV Premier review conclusion
I have used lots of different streaming services to watch European football earlier. I have used Dazn, Fox Soccer to Go, Fubo TV (old version), Sky Sports, Viasat, Laola7 and even some more. With the new Fubo TV Premium package, I do not need any of those other subscriptions, because I have got it all at once in the Fubo TV Premium package. I can, in other words, save both money and time with this single subscription.
If you want to give it a try yourself, visit the Fubo TV website. They will give you a seven-day free trial, so you have a week to find out whether you like the service or not before you have to pay anything for the service at all.
