As with most internet TV services, the entertainment and news cable channels are available all across the country, but local channels (including regional sports networks) will vary based on your location. From a high level, however, there’s a chance that you may be able to receive some or all of the following local broadcast networks from fuboTV:

  • NBC
  • CBS
  • FOX
  • MyNetworkTV (very limited locations)

Notably, fuboTV is missing ABC, as well as PBS and MeTV. However, the service does carry both FOX and NBC regional sports networks, among a few others.

In some cases, you will find what fuboTV labels a FOXNET. This is a national FOX broadcast network that you’ll receive if fuboTV was unable to secure broadcast rights for a local FOX broadcaster in your region. There’s a similar option available for NBC, called NBC East or NBC West. In those cases, you’ll get a national version of NBC instead of a local one.

For both FOXNET and NBC East/West, NFL broadcasts will be unavailable.

How Do I Check My Local Channel List for fuboTV?

There are two easy ways to determine what fuboTV local channels are available to you. The first is to simply head over to fubo.tv and look at the available channels. Fubo will identify your location and serve up a channel listing based on your current city. However, you can also easily find your local channels by going to fuboTV’s dedicated FAQ page for local channels. Simply search the page (ctrl+F) for your city to see which channels are available.

Live TV Recording for Local Channels

You’ll get a 30-hour cloud DVR from fuboTV, which can be upgraded to 500 hours if you opt for a paid upgrade or a subscription package that comes with the additional DVR storage. Your DVR can be used to record on any channel available through fuboTV, including local networks like FOX and NBC.

However, some recording restrictions will apply. You may not be able to record some major sporting events on local channels, for example. And you may find that the fast-forwarding through ads is blocked for some shows or some channels. Additionally, fuboTV notes that there may be some DVR restrictions that are unique to certain devices.

How Do I Get Local Channels Not Available on fuboTV?

You may be slightly disappointed with the fuboTV local channels in your region. There are some options to expand your local channel availability, however. You could purchase a digital over-the-air (OTA) antenna, which will let you watch any local channel broadcasting in your area, for free. An OTA DVR will also let you record for free with no restrictions.

However, a good option is also to compare fuboTV with other streaming services. Our Cord Cutter Express tool lets you input your desired channels, including network channels like FOX and NBC, and then offers a visual comparison of different, popular services based on the channels you pick. It’s easy to use and takes just a few minutes to get a full comparison of different streaming services and their channel lineups.
