fuboTV has added a number of new channels to its lineup following a new carriage agreement with Scripps Networks. fuboTV offers three main plans to choose from with the main differences being the monthly cost and the selection of channels. However, these latest channel additions are available to fuboTV subscribers of all three main plans.

Pro is currently the cheapest fuboTV package and brings together more than 100 live TV channels under one subscription for $69.99 per month. Those looking to unlock more channels, or events in 4K, can upgrade to the $79.99 per month Elite or $99.99 per month Ultimate plan. fuboTV also offers a Latino package which unlocks more than 45 channels for $32.99 per month.

Pro, Elite and Ultimate subscribers all now have access to the new channels. The latest additions are ION, ION Mystery, ION Plus, Bounce, Grit, Newsy, and Court TV. The announcement confirms these channels have been added to the lineup as part of a multi-year distribution partnership agreed with Scripps Networks.

fuboTV has, in the past, been more commonly associated with sports. While sports still remains a major focus for the live TV streaming service, fuboTV has also been looking to actively expand its entertainment and news content as well. This latest change is part of that wider approach to offer homes live TV and on-demand content that appeals to all household members.

While it isn’t uncommon for live TV streaming services to announce price increases around the same time they add new channels, that doesn’t appear to be the case here, so far. fuboTV makes no mention of an upcoming price increase in the announcement and the fuboTV website shows no changes to the cost of any of the three main live TV packages. The last time fuboTV did encounter a price increase was in March 2022. At that time, the $65 per month Starter plan was removed, resulting in the $70 Pro plan becoming the cheapest available fuboTV live TV package.
