In what seems like a direct snub of Disney’s Hulu + Live TV streaming service, Spectrum will help its customers sign up for YouTube TV or Fubo. This comes as Spectrum last week lost access to Disney-owned channels, including ESPN.
Now, according to MoffettNathanson, Spectrum will be putting QR codes on its TV screens to sign up for YouTube TV or Fubo to get ESPN. The plan reportedly will e to put the QR codes on the screen when you try to watch ESPN. These codes will take Spectrum customers directly to the signup pages for the two services.
Recently, Spectrum also started to email its customers to let them know they are offering a special deal with Fubo. With this deal, Spectrum TV customers can get 30% off the live TV streaming service Fubo for two months.
To get this deal, you need to check your email, as the only way to sign up for this deal is to click the link in the email from Spectrum offering this discount. With this deal, you can get Fubo’s $99.99 Ultimate plan with NFL Red Zone included for $69.99 a month.
There is no word yet on if Spectrum will offer any special deals with YouTube TV. This all comes as Spectrum warns that it may leave cable TV altogether and offer bundles of streaming services. Now Spectrum is partnering with a handful of streaming services to help their customers watch ESPN, even if that means its not with Spectrum.
With Spectrum agreeing to offer two months of discounts on Fubo, it sounds like Spectrum is expecting this to be a long fight with Disney.
