How does the FuboTV cost compare to Hulu?

FuboTV and Hulu price plans start at roughly the same price - Hulu is just $5 more at $69.99 a month. But which one you lean towards will depend on whether you’re a sports devotee, or a fan of scripted comedy and drama looking to supplement their live TV streaming with a large helping of VOD titles.

The FuboTV Starter plan offers incredible value with its comprehensive tally of 110+ channels, a third of which are sports related. You can upgrade to Elite and get heaps more across the entertainment spectrum, and further bolster your sporting line-up with Add-On packages like Sports Plus with NFL RedZone and plus CONMEBOL & More international games. Bundled together, these will gain you access to a whopping 70+ networks packed with live games.

By comparison, Hulu’s single-tier Live TV plan kind of drops the ball. It provides a slimmer line-up of around 75 channels, while its sports coverage is limited to 16 networks, including ESPN, ACCN, and the NFL Network and TNT.

But where FuboTV is proudly “sports-first”, Hulu excels at providing a broader range of general entertainment. It's got the 6 A&E channels that FuboTV recently dropped, plus networks like AMC, BET, the Disney Channel, FX, and NBC, and an incredible on-demand library of thousands of TV shows and films. Additionally, while you can stream to a maximum of 10 devices with FuboTV, for an extra $9.99 you can get Unlimited Screens through your home network with Hulu, and so stream live TV on as many screens as you like.

How do the FuboTV prices compare to Sling TV?

Coming out of left field are Sling TV prices and packages, offering three base plans at highly competitive prices. For $35 you can choose Sling Orange, under whose 32-channel umbrella falls Disney, Freeform, and ESPN, or Sling Blue, which has 10 more channels and a greater focus on news and entertainment. Alternatively, pick the combined Sling Orange + Blue plan for $50 and get 50 channels in total.

Now, here’s where things get interesting. You can bulk out these relatively basic options with a variety of a la carte packages, including dozens of standalone channels and up to seven themed extras. Purchase the Total TV deal for $21 and you get them all (with the exception of AMC+). That instantly boosts your channel line-up by 71, adding programming across kids’ entertainment, comedy, lifestyle, news and sports. Combine that with a Sling Blue subscription, and you’ll have 114 channels for the bargain price of $56 – better value than even the entry-level FuboTV plan.

Sling TV isn’t nearly as comprehensive as Fubo when it comes to sports, and its Cloud DVR storage is rather lacklustre at 50 hours. But if you’re after flexibility, or lots of content on a budget, then there’s none better.

How do the FuboTV prices compare to YouTube TV?

YouTube TV has a single-tier plan that matches the FuboTV cost of $64.99, and provides over 85 channels, a figure which can sizably increase depending on your location: for example, a New York City zip code returned a line-up of 97 local and national channels on their website.

While YouTube TV’s sports offerings seem diminished next to FuboTV, it does include major networks like the NFL, NBA, and MLB.  Plus, unlike Hulu, it provides a wide range of Add-On channels to supplement different viewing needs. HBO Max is available to give you your prestige TV and Warner Brothers content fix, while the Sports Plus Add-on will help you get more football action, with thirteen channels including Fox Soccer Plus at $10.99 a month.

YouTube TV has some definite advantages over Fubo, the main one being its Cloud DVR has unlimited storage capacity. Yet, in regards sheer bang for your buck and sports coverage, FuboTV plans are hard to beat. Reiterating this is the fact that, whereas YouTube TV has only one international sports channels (beIN Sports), FuboTV has at least half a dozen, including Latino and Portuguese Plus.

How does the FuboTV cost compare to other streaming services?

FuboTV plans might have a fantastic line-up of networks, but it’s not exactly inexpensive. So, if you won’t miss the multi-channel cable experience, there are some outstanding VOD options.

Everyone knows Netflix. For $9.99 a month you can dive into a library of over 5000 TV shows and films, in addition to catching popular original series like Grace and Frankie, Ozark, and Sex Education and The Witcher.

Amazon Prime dials the price up to $12.99, but its content library is twice the size of Netflix, with compelling membership perks like free music streaming and delivery. Plus, with Amazon Channels you can add individual networks for an additional fee. So, just because you don’t have cable doesn’t mean missing the latest Showtime drama or live sports programming.

If your cable diet largely consists of HBO shows, animation, and classic cinema, then you’ll happily take a HBO Max membership. There's a $9.99 'With Ads' option available, or the more expensive $14.99 'Ad Free' plan. Both include every HBO series ever made, content from dozens of major networks like Studio Ghibli and Warner Brothers, exclusive streaming rights to The Big Bang Theory and Friends, and HBO Max Originals like DC's Suicide Squad spin-off, Peacemaker.

 Finally, there’s VOD trailblazer Disney Plus. At $7.99 a month, it brings together family-friendly brands like Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, and Disney, while spinning gold from these franchises with original content like The Book of Boba Fett, WandaVision, The Mandalorian, and Monsters at Work. And, if you love Frozen 2 but are also partial to sports, you can get ESPN Plus with a Disney Plus bundle package for $13.99 a month
