In addition, an expanded selection of extra Viacom networks will be available in fuboTV’s premier “fubo Extra” package including BET Her, BET Jams, BET Soul, Logo, MTV2, MTV Classic, MTV Live, mtvU, Nick Music, Nicktoons, and TeenNick. Many of Viacom’s Spanish-language networks such as Telefe and MTV Tr3s will be included in other fuboTV packages as well.

Aside from the Viacom deal, fuboTV has also announced Ginx, the streaming service’s second eSports networks covering all things related to competitive gaming. Ginx will be included in the fubo Extra package and will offer coverage of eSports tournaments and competitions in addition to commentary and analysis.
