FuboTV drops Turner channels and plans to increase service price

FuboTV plan to make some significant changes to their channel. This will benefit subscribers greatly, and of course, these changes will come with a price.

“Sometimes, to help us bring you new channels at the best value, and to deliver premium features like live sports in 4K, we need to remove other channels and adjust subscription prices,” fubo said in an email to subscribers. “Turner networks will be leaving fuboTV as of July 1, 2020, and subscription prices will be changing.”

From Wednesday morning, FuboTV is no longer featuring TNT, TBS, CNN, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, truTV, HLN, TCM, CNN Español and CNN International.

This news of the deal between FuboTV and WarnerMedia comes shortly after an agreement was signed with Disney’s service to add channels such as ESPN, Disney, ABC, and National Geographic. This is a big deal for both sides of the party.

fuboTV wrote in the email “We’re excited to add ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ABC, Disney Channel, Disney Jr, Disney XD, Freeform, FX, FXX, Nat Geo and, depending on your area and package, potentially more Disney networks to your fuboTV subscription this August. This will include live channels as well as thousands of on-demand movies and shows.”

Fans are speculating the exact price, and how much the increase would be. Some have speculated an increase of around $5 a month, but this is simply a guess. Until the official prices are released, nobody will know for sure.

2019 was an excellent year for fuboTV. They had a 96% increase in revenue and had over 315,000 subscribers. This came after merging with Facebank Group. Subscriptions aren’t currently starting at $55 per month. This is similar pricing to Hulu with Live and AT&T TV NOW. Once fuboTV loses these channels, they will be the only one out of there without WarnerMedia networks.
