fuboTV brings promotion, new features to Apple TV
If you’re an Apple TV user who has considered trying out the FuboTV sport-focused live TV streaming service, they’ve given you a couple “dynamic” new reasons to make the leap.
FuboTV has now rolled out the first in a host of new features for Apple TV, an interface enhancement they’re calling “dynamic discovery.” With it, FuboTV subscribers can browse content while having a live preview directly on the home screen. In other words, as you’re scrolling through your channel options you’ll be able to see what’s currently playing live on that channel.
If you want to switch, simply transition to the fullscreen player with just one click. It’s a slick way to see what’s happening on live games, find out what scene is playing in your movie options, and discover what TV shows are not worth flipping to because they’re on a commercial.
Dynamic discovery will automatically load on the home screen when the FuboTV app is launched. Fubo TV is reporting that 50 percent of Apple TV users should already be seeing this feature, with the rest getting access to it throughout next week.
To help attract more viewers to the service, FuboTV has also launched a new multi-month promotion for new subscribers. Those who prepay for two months of the basic FuboTV service at $34.99 a month will be automatically upgraded with the Extra Bundle (normally $49.99 a month after the first month).
The promotional bundle also includes upgrades to DVR Plus (500 hours of personal Cloud DVR) + Family Share (including three simultaneous screens) and two months of Showtime (normally $10.99 a month for nine Showtime channels).
