fuboTV is currently experiencing a technical issue that affects a subscriber’s ability to log in to their account and stream live TV. The problem also seems to affect the ability for new users to sign up for an account. fuboTV is currently aware of the outage and working on a fix, although it remains unclear when the problem will be resolved.

fuboTV is a good option for streaming live TV over the internet. It can be particularly good for homes looking for increased access to live sports including the World Cup. In addition to the selection of live TV channels, subscribers also get access to a DVR for recording movies, shows, and live sports, as well as an on-demand section with videos that are available to watch at any time.

However, some existing subscribers have woken up today to find out that they cannot actually log into their account, preventing them from also streaming any live TV, recordings, or on-demand shows. fuboTV acknowledged the problem earlier today, explaining that the service is currently investigating the issue and “working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.”

For some users, they may just simply be unable to watch anything. For others, the issue may have resulted in them being logged out of their account and then unable to log back in again.

In addition to affecting existing subscribers, the same problem seems to be stopping new ones from signing up for a subscription. Attempting to head over to the fubo TV website and start a free trial simply results in a loading screen that never actually loads anything, preventing the user from creating a new account.

Again, fuboTV is aware of the problem and is currently working to resolve the issue. However, it does remain unclear as to how long a fix will take. It also remains unclear just what exactly is causing the problem. With a World Cup semi-final due to take place in a couple of hours, many sports fans will be hoping the issue is resolved by then.

John started Streaming Better to help consumers navigate the live TV streaming and subscription service landscape. John has been editing and writing about technology and streaming for online publications since 2014, and believes the best streaming approach is to rotate between services as needed.

John's preferred live TV streaming service right now is YouTube TV although he does tend to switch live TV services multiple times each year to keep up to date with their changes. Outside of live TV, John also actively streams HBO Max (for the shows), Peacock (for Premier League), and Paramount Plus (for Champion's League). However, John is also currently subscribed to Apple TV+, Discovery+, Hulu, Starz, Showtime, and Shudder.
