Newsy Expands Pay-TV Distribution, Adding Full Slate of News Programming to fuboTV
As part of its rapid expansion across over-the-top and cable television platforms, Newsy has added its full slate of news programming to fuboTV, the live TV streaming service.
fuboTV subscribers can watch Newsy’s up-to-the-minute news coverage, its full lineup of live shows including “The Day Ahead” and “The Why,” and its award-winning documentaries and investigations.
Newsy is available as part of fuboTV’s fubo Extra package, available as an add-on ($5.99 per month) or as part of the Deluxe and Ultra bundles ($64.99 or $79.99 per month, respectively).
“Newsy’s incredible growth in the cable and over-the-top ecosystems is a testament to the strength of our brand with both audiences and advertisers in this evolving marketplace, and joining fuboTV is another milestone in our expansion,” said Blake Sabatinelli, CEO for Newsy. “Our approach to bringing context to the day’s most important stories brings much-needed perspective viewers won’t get from legacy news brands.”
Newsy is the leading cross-platform national news network and has distribution agreements with many of the country’s largest cable companies and covering nearly 40 million cable subscribers. Newsy also is a leader in over-the-top television with distribution on nearly every streaming platform, including skinny bundles available via SlingTV, YouTubeTV and now fuboTV.
Headquartered in New York City, fuboTV has quickly evolved into the top independent virtual MVPD in the U.S. and a sports-first cable replacement for the entire family, after initially launching as a streaming soccer service in January 2015. Today, fuboTV offers the most popular entertainment, news and sports programming in the world, including more than 30,000 sporting events per year and 14,000 TV episodes and movies on demand each month.
