fuboTV brings NBCUniversal’s coverage of Olympic Winter Games
Video Subscribers Gain Access to NBCUniversal’s unprecedented 2,400 hours of Multi-Platform Coverage of the Olympic Winter Games
NoCable reviewed fuboTV about a year ago. Back then it was just starting out, had viewing glitches and mostly soccer (futball?) and Spanish-language stations. Lately however, it has been adding local NBC, CBS and FOX affiliate stations at an amazing pace and generally adding a lot of features to their now formidable lineup.
Today fuboTV announced in that in an agreement with NBCUniversal, they will provide a multi-platform content offering for NBCUniversal’s coverage of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games from PyeongChang, South Korea, to commence on Thursday, February 8, and run through Sunday, February 25. Subscribers to the fuboTV sports-first live streaming TV service will have access to NBCUniversal’s unprecedented 2,400 hours of Olympic programming, including coverage of all competition sessions, on-demand. fuboTV has also today launched a new feature, updating its Sports navigation bar to include a break-down of Olympic programming, sorted by sport, in order to help viewers find specific live events more easily.
In addition to enjoying extensive linear coverage on the networks of NBCUniversal, including NBC*, NBCSN, CNBC, and USA Network, as well as daily news and highlight coverage on the Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA, subscribers to the Fubo Premier base package can stay connected to the PyeongChang Games wherever they go by using their fuboTV credentials to login via NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app, America’s premier Olympic Games digital destinations. Like no other event to date, the Olympic Games have been, and continue to be, a driver of significant TV Everywhere engagement.
“The Winter Olympics is a great example of the breadth and depth of live sports that our subscribers can stream, with thousands of hours of premium content available this month thanks to our partnership with NBCUniversal,” said fuboTV Head of Content Strategy & Acquisition Ben Grad. “Sports fans demand access to the best sports moments, athletes and teams across their favorite devices, and we can’t wait to deliver that experience to them when the PyeongChang Games begin on Thursday.”
The following multi-platform offerings from NBCUniversal will allow fuboTV customers to watch and be a part of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games through www.fubo.tv on desktop and mobile web, as well as via Android and iOS apps, and TV connected devices including Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, Chromecast and Roku.
