Today, Fubo confirmed to Cord Cutters News that it have added two new channels, including KTVK and KPHE that are now live. Also, KJZZ will be coming to Fubo, but is not live yet, according to a report from the NBA. This is great news as these channels will include more local sports, including the Jazz on KJZZ.
“The Utah Jazz are all in on providing the best possible experiences to ensure that our fanbase feels immersed in every minute of the action – even when they are cheering on the team hundreds of miles away from Delta Center,” said Ryan Smith, chairman of Smith Entertainment Group and governor of the Utah Jazz. “Our broadcast strategy is an evolution. We deliberately designed our new approach so we can be nimble and form deals like these most recent outer market agreements that allow us to reach a wider base of fans through every available platform. It’s a great time to be a Jazz fan, and we are excited to reach six million potential fans across six states heading into our 50th season.”
Here is how Fubo describes these new channels:
KTVK (Phoenix, AZ) – Arizona’s Family 3TV is the premier local news, weather, sports, and entertainment destination in Arizona. We serve all Arizonans from our studios in the Phoenix metro area, northern Arizona communities from our bureau in Flagstaff, and soon southwestern Arizona from our new Yuma bureau.
KPHE (Phoenix / Tucson / Yuma, AZ and Albuquerque, NM) – Arizona’s Family Sports (AZFS) is your TV home for the Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Mercury, Phoenix Rising and AIA High School Championship sports. All your favorite teams now on your favorite channel.
This all comes as Fubo rolled out a new data center. Fubo hopes it will help improve the speed and quality of its video delivery.
The update should help Fubo better handle the demands of live streaming, leading to a smoother experience for customers. The change may not be noticeable right away, but could pay dividends as Fubo grows its audience and needs to serve more subscribers.
One major possibility for Fubo with this update is the ability to reduce the delay between streaming and cable TV. Higher speed and lower lag times means quicker loading streams, getting you to your favorite channels faster.
