2 Comments on FuboTV to Stream Big Ten, Big East Basketball Tournaments In 4K

  1. I have a LG OLED65C7P, charter or spectrum internet, if I download Fubo on my tv will I be able to watch bog ten next month in 4K? Or will I need something else?

  2. Fubo is trying 4K but they have yet to stream 5.1 audio. Seems like they’re putting the cart before the horse. Is this the industry standard at this time? Does any streaming service (live tv, that is) offer state of the art audio? Maybe it’s just me but I enjoy good sound, especially in action films or sci-fi.
