Fubo has started testing split-screen support on Amazon Fire TV and Android TV devices. Thanks to the new Splitscreen Beta that’s now available, subscribers can watch two events at the same time on the same screen.
Fubo already offers a Multiview feature that makes it possible to watch up to four channels at the same time on the one screen. However, Fubo’s version of Multiview is currently only available on Apple TV.
For Amazon Fire TV and Android TV device users, Fubo’s new Splitscreen Beta makes it possible to watch two events simultaneously. As it is still in testing, however, it is pretty limited in terms of availability and functionality.
At present, it is not possible for a subscriber to choose which two events to watch side by side. Instead, the feature is currently only available during select events. Right now, for example, the feature only seems to be available when watching select UEFA Euro 2024 qualification games on Fubo.
Whenever any available split-screen opportunities are available, they will be highlighted in the channel guide, in Browse While Watching, or on the Sports page when using an Android TV or Fire TV device.
While not as useful as the four-way Multiview support on Apple TV, split-screen support does at least offer Amazon Fire TV and Android TV users with a way to watch two different feeds at the same time, and that’s an improvement on the current situation.
Fubo is not the only service attempting to improve its multi-view support. Apple TV has also started offering a four-way Multiview option when watching MLB and MLS events. Likewise, YouTube TV has also started rolling out its own multiview, making it possible to watch multiple sports games and events on the same screen.
