If you’re interested in testing the cord-cutting service Fubo but aren’t too keen on its high prices, then you’ll be glad to hear that you can test it without paying. That’s right, there’s a Fubo free trial.
Fubo, formerly FuboTV, is one of the best live TV streaming services but like its rivals, it doesn’t come cheap. Its lowest tier is $74.99 per month and it only goes up from there. But it’s a great service too, especially for sports fans, with 4K streams of big games and other channels.
Thanks to the test period, you can check it out without paying — so here’s how to sign up for the free Fubo trial.
How to sign up for FuboTV free trial
The following works the same whether you're on a desktop browser or on your phone or tablet. (In fact, the FuboTV app will just kick you into a browser to sign up anyway.)
- Go to Fubo.tv.
- If your ZIP Code isn't automatically detected, enter it.
- Enter your email address and choose a strong password. (We recommend using a password manager.)
- Alternatively, sign up using your Facebook or Google account credentials. Click "Go to next step."
- Choose whether you want the basic FuboTV service or FuboTV Extra, which has more channels. Click "Go to next step."
- Choose whether you want any of the add-on features, such as extra DVR storage, family sharing or sports extras. Click "Go to final step."
- Enter your credit card information.
- Click "Start watching FuboTV."
And that, folks, is that. You'll now be subscribed to a free trial of FuboTV, which will last you seven days before the first monthly fee is applied.
What devices support FuboTV?
FuboTV works on nearly every piece of streaming hardware available (save for PlayStation). This includes Amazon Fire TV, Android mobile devices, Android TV, Apple TV, Google TV, Google Chromecast, computers, Hisense TVs, iPhone, iPad, iPod, LG TVs, Roku, Samsung Smart TV, Vizio SmartCast TV and Xbox One models.
Here are our personal favorites:
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K
Amazon's Fire TV lineup gets a little murky — the Fire TV Stick 4K doesn't cost the most or do the same things as, say, the Fire TV Cube. But here's why we'd buy it ahead of the Cube: It costs less than half as much, plus it has support for Dolby Vision HDR (the Cube doesn't), in addition to Dolby Atmos audio. And you can still pair it up with an inexpensive Amazon Echo Dot if you need hand-free voice control. And it runs just about every streaming app available.
The Fire TV Stick 4K isn't the only affordable option to use with FuboTV. If Fire TV just isn't your thing and you're more of a Roku person, we'd recommend the Roku Ultra. It's the most powerful Roku device you can get. And at about $100 (you usually can find it for less, though) it'll last you for years and give you the sort of performance you'd expect from a device you're going to use every single day.
