As part of its rapid expansion across over-the-top and cable television platforms, The E.W. Scripps Co.’s Newsy has added its full slate of news programming to fuboTV, the live TV streaming service.
The arrangement gives fuboTV subscribers access to Newsy’s up-to-the-minute news coverage, its full lineup of live shows including “The Day Ahead” and “The Why,” and its documentaries and investigations.
Newsy is available as part of fuboTV’s fubo Extra package, available as an add-on ($5.99 per month) or as part of the Deluxe and Ultra bundles ($64.99 or $79.99 per month, respectively).
“Newsy’s incredible growth in the cable and over-the-top ecosystems is a testament to the strength of our brand with both audiences and advertisers in this evolving marketplace, and joining fuboTV is another milestone in our expansion,” said Newsy CEO Blake Sabatinelli. “Our approach to bringing context to the day’s most important stories brings much-needed perspective viewers won’t get from legacy news brands.”
Headquartered in New York City, fuboTV has quickly evolved into a top independent virtual MVPD in the U.S. and a sports-first cable replacement for the entire family, after initially launching as a streaming soccer service in January 2015. Today, fuboTV offers more than 30,000 sporting events per year and 14,000 TV episodes and movies on demand each month.
