Today fuboTV announced a new agreement with NESN (New England Sports Network.) As part of the deal fuboTV will launch NESN in the coming days to subscribers of “Fubo Premier” – its base package of 65-plus live streaming TV channels.
“As sports fans demand flexibility in how and where they can follow their favorite teams, NESN is excited to partner with new distributors that will broadly make our networks available,” said NESN CEO Sean McGrail. “We look forward to this relationship with fuboTV, whose innovative platform will prominently feature the Red Sox, Bruins, and all of our sports programming.”
“NESN is one of the country’s top rated regional sports networks, featuring two of sports’ most iconic and storied teams, the Red Sox and Bruins,” said fuboTV CFO Joel Armijo. “We could not be more excited to be one of the first OTT providers to bring this must-watch content to New England sports fans.”
“Red Sox fans that want the most sports for the least money will now be able to watch 150 games a year on fuboTV, and Bruins fans can now catch every minute of every game, at home or on the go, on their favorite device,” added Ben Grad, fuboTV head of North American content strategy & acquisition. “From Boston to Burlington, Vermont and from Presque Isle, Maine to the Hartford market, fans can now watch the best of New England sports on our impressive sports package.”
Following the NESN launch, Fubo Premier will be available to new subscribers in the above markets at $19.99 for the first two months, and $44.99 thereafter in markets that offer NESN. Current subscribers will be grandfathered in at their current rate.
fuboTV also added that soon, subscribers will be able to use their fuboTV login and password to access NESN programming via the NESNgo website and apps, and will be able to access NESN content via video-on-demand (VOD).
