Fubo TV — which has made a name for itself as one of the few ways by which you can stream live sports in 4K in the U.S. — has just ratcheted things up yet another level. The streaming network has signed a deal that brings 13 Discovery networks to its listings.
Some Discovery channels have been around from a previous deal, including HGTV, Food Network and Travel Channel. Joining them on the base Fubo TV plan ("Fubo Standard") will be Discovery Channel, TLC, Investigation Discovery, Animal Planet, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, and MotorTrend.
Additional channels — Science Channel, Destination America, Discovery Family, American Heroes Channel and Discovery Life — are landing on Fubo Extra, which is available for an additional $5.99 a month. Discovery en Español and Discovery Familia are headed to Fubo Latino as part of that $24.99-a-month package, and the smaller $7.99-a-month Latino Plus package.
The new agreement also gives Fubo subscribers access to Discovery's massive on-demand library.
The best channels and sports in 4K!
Fubo TV has quickly found itself among the top streaming networks, with sports livestreamed in 4K resolution — and now with more than a dozen Discovery channels.

NEW YORK [June 19, 2019] Discovery, Inc. (Nasdaq: DISCA, DISCB, DISCK) and fuboTV (fubo.tv), today announced a new, multi-year carriage agreement that will bring 13 Discovery networks to fuboTV's live TV streaming service in the coming weeks.

"Our partners at fuboTV are building a unique programming service, and we are pleased to bring more of our portfolio of real-life passion brands and programs to their subscribers," said Eric Phillips, President of Affiliate Distribution at Discovery. "This agreement further exemplifies the viewer affinity for our beloved brands and talent, and fuboTV's commitment to offering high-quality, world-class content to customers."
Discovery Channel, TLC, Investigation Discovery, Animal Planet, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network and MotorTrend will be available on fuboTV's base package, fubo Standard, joining HGTV, Food Network and Travel Channel which are already available on the service.
At the same time, an expanded suite of Discovery networks including Science Channel, Destination America, Discovery Family, American Heroes Channel, and Discovery Life will be added to fuboTV's add-on package, fubo Extra ($5.99/month for 30+ channels) joining DIY Network and Cooking Channel. Additionally, Discovery en Español and Discovery Familia will be available on fuboTV's Spanish-language package, fubo Latino ($24.99/month for 20 channels), and the Latino Plus add-on package ($7.99/month for 15 channels).
In addition to bringing subscribers each network's live linear feed, the agreement also includes a robust library of on-demand Discovery content, bringing fuboTV's VOD library to over 60,000 movies and TV episodes per month.
"Today's content agreement broadens the strategic relationship between Discovery and fuboTV that began almost two years ago with the former Scripps Networks," said Joel Armijo, CFO, fuboTV. "We are excited to be adding more Discovery brands alongside their lifestyle networks, which we already carry. These brands, including HGTV and Food Network, are among our top performing entertainment networks, and this agreement allows us to extend our partnership for years to come. We expect to be similarly successful with our new Discovery networks."
