Fubo Increases DVR Capability, Rolls Out Upgraded Mobile App

If you’re a FuboTV subscriber, you don’t have to worry about missing the big game thanks to some new features the streaming television service is introducing.

Fubo announced today that they were upgrading all subscribers to 10 DVR spots, increasing from the previous number of 3. Fubo first launched their DVR feature in 2015, but it was fairly limited at the time, only allowing for recording of certain channels. This is by far the biggest upgrade Fubo has made on that front.

And if you forget to set your DVR, you’re still covered. Last month, Fubo also announced the debut of a new “lookback” that lets viewers catch up on any programs they missed within 72 hours. Just about all content, including standard shows and live sporting events are included.

In addition to upgrading the DVR slots, Fubo also announced an upgrade to their mobile app that makes a number of changes. The new Fubo Android app brings a redesigned “entertainment” tab that lets users search shows and movies by genre, or see everything available at once, plus a “live now” carousel for shows and movies to see what’s currently airing, plus an “upcoming” and “recently aired” tab for the same content.

If you’re still not familiar with Fubo, it’s a fantastic streaming television service that’s becoming especially popular with sports fans. The basic package costs less than $35 a month. While the service began with a focus on soccer, it quickly became a viable competitor for the average customer, adding dozens of standard channels, including almost every major sports network.

Fubo now has deals with several large network families, including Fox, NBC, Fuse, A&E, NBA TV, Crown, and more. There are several premium add on packages available, with even more sports and movie options. With the new lookback and the expanded DVR features, expect Fubo to keep growing.
