Fubo TV will be adding a new tier of programming from the Euro Zone adding more sports along with movies and news. TV5MONDE USA has reached an agreement with FaceBank Group, Inc. (d/b/a fuboTV) (OTCQB: FUBO) to bring the flagship TV5MONDE USA network to live TV streaming platform fuboTV.
Said TV5MONDE USA’s COO Patrice Courtaban, “We’re very happy to work with fuboTV, one of the leading live TV streaming platforms in the U.S. TV5MONDE is widely recognized for bringing a wealth of premium French language entertainment programming, movies and when the leagues return, unique, best-in-class sports coverage to viewers from the leading league games to weekly Ligue 1 soccer games, Top 14 rugby regular season matches and the league’s Championship match, to name a few.”
Soccer is a big draw on fubo TV, which started as a service built around the sport. So
“We are listening to what our customers want and, in these unprecedented times, there is a strong appetite for more entertainment content and, as sports gradually begin to return, international leagues. TV5MONDE is a great complement to our existing fuboTV channel lineup and strengthens our multicultural Hispanic, Portuguese and Italian programming with French content.”
