  1. The #1 problem with Fubo (for me, and people that like watching US sports, like many of the bowl games and NFL Monday night football, and some of the NFL playoff games) is it does not have ESPN. It also (for the same reason) does not have ABC.
    If Fubo had these, I think it would be the easy winner, but without them I would miss Monday Night Football and my wife would miss many of the programs only on ABC. This is a show stopper. Yes, I will miss things like the PAC 12 networks, but I can live with that and some of it is on the other sports channels like FS1&2. It is not the $40 vs $80 for me, it is the content that I cannot get on Fubo.
    PS- I currently have Fubo, Sling (orange) and YoutubeTV. I expect to drop all but YoutubeTV, at least as long as Fubo cannot get ESPN and ABC
    The good news is this is a very fluid situation and it is easy to turn one off and another on when the conditions warrants.

  2. Appears must have picked up ESPN since the other comment. To me, the interface is way better than YouTube TV. And in the PNW, it has the Roots channels, which frequently carry the Timbers games. You can also pick up the PAC-12 network, which you can’t get with YouTube TV. YouTube is a straight $65, and Fubo charges you $65, plus a “regional sports fee” of ~$6/month. That’s worth it to me, but costs do start climbing. There’s really no way to add the PAC-12 Network without at least another $8/month for the Extra package (which comes with a bunch of other channels I don’t really care about). We’ll add that package during football season and stick with the ~$71 all in. For my purposes, that adds about $6/month relative to YouTube TV for a better interface and the Roots channels. Hope that helps people.
