For a service that was originally all about soccer, fuboTV has quickly become a popular choice for live TV watchers. It features 4 packages, including a Spanish language plan that is charged every quarter at $19.99/mo. Prices for the other plans range from $54.99/mo. to $79.99/mo., depending on how many channels you want access to. (The standard package currently provides more than 85 channels.)
