Our take: Why fuboTV Canada is great for soccer fans
Simply put, it’s because you’ll be able to watch every Premier League and Serie A match this season. These are two of the most prestigious leagues in the world, so if you love soccer clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United, Juventus, and Roma, fuboTV Canada is the streaming service you want.
Not only that, but you can also watch most soccer games from France’s Ligue 1 and Canada’s Premier League, too. If you love The Beautiful Game, fuboTV Canada is a no-brainer, full stop.
What is fuboTV Canada?
fuboTV Canada is a sports-centric streaming service available in Canada, Spain and the United States. The company is nowhere near as large as on-demand options like Netflix or Disney+. However, given its somewhat niche focus, the company’s 1-million subscriber count is pretty good.
Unlike its US version, fuboTV Canada is not trying to replace existing broadcast, cable or satellite services. Instead, the live TV streaming service supplements your current TV provider with a low-cost lineup of sports-centric channels. Soccer fans in Canada will like the channel lineup which includes access to matches from:
- Canadian Premier League
- Canadian Championship
- Canada Soccer’s Men’s and Women’s National Teams
Besides Canadian soccer, fuboTV Canada has a strong roster of international leagues. In early 2022, fuboTV inked a deal with the English Premier League to become its exclusive streamer in Canada. The Premier League joins Copa Italia, Serie A and other soccer leagues.
FuboTV also picked up the CBC, so you get more than just sports.
fuboTV Canada 60-second summary
When fuboTV first started, its main mission was to stream international soccer to diehard fans. For fuboTV Canada, that mission has not changed. This streaming service may be the best way to get as much soccer as you can all in one place. And with a relatively low subscription cost, fans can justify supplementing their existing cable service.
Having said that, this limited-channel service cannot compete with the breadth of sports coverage that SportsNet Now and TSN Direct offer.

fuboTV Canada customer support
