This year we will be updating our DVR to unlimited hours at no additional cost, which will start rolling out in the next couple of months, meaning no need to worry about managing your DVR anymore. Record away.
We strive to provide the best programming at the best value. However, from time to time our programming partners raise the prices they charge us and unfortunately we are forced to pass some of that increase onto our customers. The price of your Fubo base plan will be increasing by $5 per month and your regional sports fee will be increasing by $1, all billed quarterly. These increases will take effect on or after your next billing cycle, starting February 1, 2024.
