AT&T SportsNet Southwest is where Houstonians can watch the Astros or the Rockets when the games aren’t nationally televised. But that regional sports network isn’t widely available. In fact, fuboTV is the only streaming service that lets you watch AT&T SportsNet Southwest.
Before we start, we want to highlight a fan favorite streaming service (source). Philo is one of the best options for streaming 61 live lifestyle and entertainment channels like AMC, Discovery, and Food Network as well as 50,000+ on-demand titles for only $20 a month.

When fuboTV got its start, the streaming service only wanted to focus on soccer. But as it added more channels, it ended up carrying a great collection of basic cable channels. Now, fuboTV is the perfect cable replacement for sports-loving families. And even though its support for regional cable channels isn’t great, subscribers in Houston and surrounding markets will get AT&T SportsNet Southwest.
From the perspective of regional sports networks, it doesn’t matter which of the subscription plans you get. The Family plan delivers an upgraded feature set over the Standard plan. The Ultra plan gives you the complete fuboTV channel lineup with even more sports channels.

Ever since it made the move to becoming a full-service streaming service, the biggest complaint against fuboTV was the ESPN-shaped hole in its channel lineup. Fortunately, a deal with Disney finally fills that hole. Starting sometime in August 2020, the sports network will be part of fuboTV’s lineup in all subscription plans. ESPN joins the most comprehensive selection of sports-centric channels.
The rest of the basic cable channel lineup delivers all of the popular content people expect from a cable-replacement service. FX and the Disney Channel will join channels like AMC, HGTV, Travel and Hallmark.

In most of the country, fuboTV does not carry regional sports networks except for those from NBC Sports. In Houston and the rest of southeast Texas, however, fuboTV does carry AT&T SportsNet Southwest.
FuboTV’s support for local TV stations is better, but not perfect. Most people will be able to watch their local NBC station. Roughly half of the country will be able to get their local Fox and/or CBS stations. When the Disney deal goes into effect, fuboTV will be able to stream local ABC stations. Unfortunately, the service has to sign contracts with individual station-owners. Until it does, only the ABC-owned stations in a dozen major markets will be available to stream.

One of the reasons for upgrading to the Family or Ultra plans is to let more people stream fuboTV at the same time. The Standard plan’s limit is only two devices. The premium plans let you use three devices simultaneously.

Another benefit of going with the higher-priced plans is the improved cloud DVR. The higher-priced subscriptions include a 500-hour recording capacity. The Standard plan only lets you record thirty hours of content.

Every streaming service receives on-demand versions of recently-aired episodes from the national TV channels. Fubo also has its own sports-centric TV channel that broadcasts original news shows as well as sports-themed movies.
