That’s a 135% year over year increase. Unsurprisingly, the highest viewing numbers are on Sundays and Saturdays. Most viewing happens during prime time.
What are people watching? Entertainment makes up 43% of fuboTV’s viewing hours, followed by sports with 33% and news with 24%.In the report, fuboTV also answered the question of what brings families to cord cutting and what a service needs to do to keep subscribers over time. Their research shows that there are three factors.
- Diverse Content and Channel Offering: Including sports, news, and entertainment rather than only offering entertainment helps to retain subscribers. fuboTV subscribers watch over 20 channels each month, compared to just 12 with cable TV.
- Options for Add-Ons: Over half of fuboTV subscribers purchase an add-on, with the Cloud DVR add-on topping the list of most popular extras.

Cord cutting continues to grow as families look for alternatives to watching TV with a high cable bill. In 2020, fuboTV predicts that cord cutting will become more popular as subscribers find the value in a better user experience and more options.
