fuboTV‘s main specialty is sports, but it has a great selection of news channels as well. CNN International is available, as is CNBC, BBC America and several other news channels. Another thing that’s great about fuboTV is that it’s the only streaming service that supports live 4K channel streams. That makes fuboTV a logical choice if you have a 4K-compatible TV set and you like sports as much as you like news.

fuboTV Pricing and Packages

fuboTV’s least expensive subscription plan costs $55/month. You can upgrade to a more expensive plan to get better features and more channels. Another way to get more channels is to purchase one of fuboTV’s channel add-on packs. To get CNN International, you’ll need to get fubo Extra, which costs just $6/month. The add-on comes with several other channels, including People TV, the Cooking Channel, DIY Network and more.
