fuboTV Local Channels and Regional Sports Networks
Despite its sports-centric approach to streaming, fuboTV only offers regional sports networks in a handful of markets. The service's support for local network affiliate stations is a lot better. Local NBC stations are available almost everywhere. Most people will get their local Fox or CBS station - sometimes both. Local ABC stations, however, are a work in progress but should start showing up throughout 2021.

Sling TV Channels

Sling TV Local Channels and Regional Sports Networks
