fuboTV has become the first U.S. virtual MVPD to expand into Europe with its recent launch in Spain.
fuboTV España subscribers now have 13 Spanish-language channels available to them, including Movistar Series. The channel, which broadcasts programming from CBS, NBC, The CW, HBO, Hulu, Netflix, Showtime and Starz, is the home to international hits such as Billions, Castle Rock, Madam Secretary, Outlander, Ray Donovan, Riverdale and Will & Grace.
Launched in 2015 as a streaming soccer service, fuboTV shifted to become a sports-first virtual MVPD before positioning itself as a complete cable replacement streaming service.
“2018 was a milestone year in fuboTV’s young life, with record revenues and subscriber growth,” said David Gandler, co-founder and CEO of fuboTV. “With our position in the U.S. solid and growing at an aggressive pace, our goal is to become the number one leading vMVPD in the world. Spain is one of the fastest-growing OTT markets and a natural fit for fubo’s European entry. We’re excited to bring our premium viewing experience to Spain with additional markets to come in 2019.”
