FuboTV will get ESPN and other Disney channels starting this summer
FuboTV announced that it signed a multiyear distribution deal with Disney to bring ESPN to its service, filling in the missing link that could make it one of the best over-the-top live TV streaming services available for sports fans.

Here’s the complete list of channels being added to the standard plan:

ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN 3
SEC Network, ACC Network
ABC, ABC News Live
FX, FXX
Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Disney XD
Freeform
National Geographic

Huge as in another choice...I expect their subscription base will grow too. They seem to offer a solid mix of channels.

RE: FuboTV will get ESPN and other Disney channels starting this summer
Lack of Disney/ESPN channels has been a huge drawback for Fubo. This potentially creates an solid competitor for Youtube TV and Hulu + Live to keep them on their toes with pricing and packages, particularly with PS Vue shutting down and ATT TV Now jacking its price for the tier with an equivalent package of sports channels. Competition also helps with RSN availability. Here in New England, Hulu lacks NESN, the Red Sox and Bruins channel (as well as the ACC's Fox RSN package), which Youtube and Fubo carry. I'm sure there are other missing RSN's around the country depending on the service. Fubo is also the only one of the three to carry NFL Network.

Finding out they have the NFL Channel makes FuboTV a no go for me. I don't support the NFL.

However for those that watch...having college and NFL together will give them a nice edge. I bet their subscriptions double within 12 months.

The word "Fubo" makes me think of "fubar", which makes me think it isn't very good.
