fuboTV lacks ESPN, so it’s not ideal if you’re looking for English-language coverage of the MLS. However, if you’re interested in Spanish-language coverage, as well as coverage of other top soccer leagues like The Premier League, La Liga, and Bundesliga, it’s definitely the best way to watch MLS without cable.

fuboTV starts at $54.99/month for the “fubo Standard” plan. Learn more about each package here.

fuboTV Channels

The basic fubo plan comes with FOX in most areas of the country, as well as FS1. However, fuboTV does not have ESPN or ESPN2 so, as mentioned, it’s not ideal if you’re looking for English MLS coverage.

However, the fubo and fubo Premier plan come with Univision, and you can get FOX Deportes with a $8/month Latino Plus add-on package. Learn more here.

fuboTV Supported Devices

Device support for fuboTV is also pretty great. You can watch on your laptop, on iOS and Android devices on the go, and on Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV while you’re at home. Learn more here.

fuboTV Simultaneous Streams

You can watch on 2 devices at once with fuboTV, which is pretty standard for an internet TV service. However, you have the option to upgrade this, too, with a $6/month “Family Share” add-on, which is nice if you have a bigger family. Learn more here.

fuboTV DVR

fuboTV has pretty standard features, but they can both be upgraded if you want, which is a nice benefit. The DVR, for example, only comes with 30 hours of storage. This DVR can be upgraded to a ridiculous 500 hours of storage for a $10/month fee. Learn more here.

fuboTV On-Demand Library

With fuboTV, you’ll get on-demand content from each channel carried in your package, so you can watch some past sporting events, on-demand shows and movies. The content lineup varies over time, however. Learn more here.
