Although a great way to stream live sports, fuboTV doesn’t carry ESPN. That makes it less than ideal for football fans, but global sports are more fuboTV’s strength. All the same, the mix of channels for the whole family may still make this a good choice for you.

fuboTV Channels

The biggest issue for sports fans is ESPN’s absence from the fuboTV lineup. If your top priority is the big US sports leagues, then fuboTV may not be the right choice. However, fuboTV’s coverage of world soccer is outstanding.

Learn more about fuboTV’s channel lineup here.

fuboTV Local Channels & Regional Sports Networks

All of the broadcast networks that carry NFL games are available in fuboTV’s Southern California coverage area. If your family enjoys the content that airs on The CW or ABC, then you may need to consider an over-the-air antenna since fuboTV doesn’t carry those stations in LA or San Diego.

Local support in the rest of the country, however, isn’t as consistent. In addition, fuboTV lost access to the Fox regional sports networks in early 2020.

fuboTV On-Demand Library

Watch the Los Angeles Chargers on Sling TV

Sling TV’s support for local TV stations, or lack thereof, makes this streaming service a weak choice when it comes to watching NFL games – or as a cable replacement in general. The streaming service works best as a supplement for local over-the-air TV since it delivers a good basic cable lineup.

Sling TV Pricing and Packages 

You’ll need to subscribe to both Sling Orange and Sling Blue to get the most football out of Sling TV.

Sling TV Channels

The two plans have a lot of overlap, but not when it comes to watching football. The only way to get ESPN is to subscribe to Sling Orange. The only way to get the NFL Network is to subscribe to Sling Blue.

Learn more about Sling TV’s channel lineup here.

Sling TV Local Channels & Regional Sports Networks

Sling TV doesn’t have a deal with CBS or ABC to stream the networks’ broadcasts. Although it has deals with Fox and NBC, Sling TV only streams NBC stations in both LA and San Diego. Fox is limited to Los Angeles only.

Sling TV is in a contract dispute with the owners of the Fox regional sports networks so you can’t watch those channels anywhere in the United States.

Learn more about Sling TV’s support for local channels here.

Sling TV Supported Devices

You will find a wide range of streaming platforms supported by Sling TV apps.

  • Living room devices: Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Facebook Portal and Roku.
  • Smart TVs and Blu-ray players: Models based on Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Roku. Also, certain models from LG and Samsung.
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Amazon Fire tablets, Android and iOS.
  • Game consoles: Xbox One and Oculus Go.
  • Desktop browsers: Chrome and Edge.

Sling TV Simultaneous Streams

Simultaneous streaming on Sling TV can be confusing. Sling Orange subscribers can only stream to one device at a time. Sling Blue subscribers can stream to three devices at once. Subscribing to both plans does nothing to change those limits.

Learn more about Sling TV’s simultaneous streaming here.

Sling TV DVR

Sling TV’s cloud DVR feature is the weakest in the streaming industry. You only get ten hours of recording capacity. An additional monthly fee increases the capacity to fifty hours which only matches the standard offering from other streaming services.

Sling TV On-Demand Library

Sling TV’s on-demand library contains whatever content its providers are willing to put there.
