How Can You Get 4K From fuboTV?

Q. I’ve been thinking of getting fuboTV since I heard they had 4K shows. But is fubo’s 4K on all devices, or just a few? — Frank, Boston.

Frank, first, for those unfamiliar with fuboTV, it’s a live streaming service that offers dozens of cable channels for packages starting at $44.99 a month. (Note: the company is now offering the $44.99 plan for $34.99 for the first month after a seven-day free trial. The $34.99 offer is a time-limited promotional price.)

FuboTV is competing with DIRECTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue and other live streamers for consumers looking for an alternative to traditional pay TV service from cable and satellite operators.

While fuboTV’s lineup features more sports channels than its live streaming rivals, it also includes such cable basics as the USA Network, the Food Network, National Geographic, FX, CNBC, Fox News and HGTV.

The company announced earlier this month that it would become the first live streaming service to offer some programming in 4K HDR10, starting this month with Fox’s broadcasts of the 2018 World Cup from Russia.

 

“Launching 4K HDR is a testament to our dedication and relentless pursuit to developing for consumers the world’s premier live video streaming service for live sports and entertainment,” said fubo’s David Gandler, the company’s co-founder and CEO.

To watch 4K HDR on fuboTV, you must have the following:

* A 4K HDR-enabled television;
* An HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 compatible cable, and the fuboTV app on a streaming device that supports the formats.
* Internet speeds of 30Mbps-40Mbps or higher.

The following devices now support fuboTV’s 4K programming:
