FuboTV Adds a New Chief Technology Officer





Today the live TV streaming service fuboTV announced they have added a new Chief Technology Officer. Geir Magnusson Jr is a former AppNexus veteran and will take over as Chief Technology Officer for fuboTV.

“We are delighted to welcome aboard Geir,” said Gandler. “He has a strong track record of scaling complex global platforms and a proven ability to guide transformation at leading tech companies.” Gandler continued: “Although only three years old, fuboTV is an industry leader in delivering new and innovative live video technology and features to the virtual Pay TV space. We believe Geir’s expertise and passion for innovation will ensure we maintain our leadership position as we deliver to consumers a next generation live OTT experience.”

Recently fuboTV announced that they now have 300 live local broadcast stations more than DIRECTV NOW, PlayStation Vue, and Sling TV.
