Prices keep rising in the U.S. and streaming services are not prone to these changes.
It has been announced today that for new customers of fuboTV that the price will go from $64.99 a month to $69.99 for the service’s base Pro Plan. This price increase is said to not impact current customers of fuboTV.
This new price increase does match other competitors such as Hulu with Live TV which has the same price, as well as DirecTV Stream. However, with the Hulu with Live TV price increases, Disney+ and ESPN+ were included to customers with the changes.
Another noticeable change to fuboTV is the removal of the Starter plan that was available during a test period.
A spokesperson told Cord Cutters News that these changes to fuboTV are all because of new features being added to the service:
“Over time, we’ve noticed our best-engaged customers maximize their DVR use. Given the DVR capacity is limited in the Starter package, as well as the number of concurrent streams, we’ll be testing making Pro the primary offer for new consumers to provide greater value around their DVR and household sharing experience…Pro offers all of the same sports, news and entertainment channels as Starter, but with upgraded DVR storage of 1,000 hours and Unlimited Screens (up to 10 device streams at home simultaneously). Customers of our Pro plan can enjoy the recent addition of Magnolia Network, which was previously only available in our Elite package.”
fuboTV is currently available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac. Its app syncs with the Apple TV app too.
