fuboTV doesn’t carry the TNT channel and while it remains to be seen if that will change in the future, it is a possibility. Although fuboTV is a competitively priced live TV streaming service, it is missing a number of channels that are available through other services. At the same time, it also includes various channels that other live TV services are missing. However, channel lineups are always evolving, resulting in various changes each year.

Along with CNN, HLN, and TBS, among others, TNT is one of the many Turner channels. In most cases, if one of the Turner channels is available with a particular live TV plan, many of the others are likely to be as well. By the same token, if a live TV streaming service doesn’t offer one of these channels, it doesn’t tend to offer the others either.

That’s exactly the case now with fuboTV. Although the service does include a varied channel lineup, TNT is not available to watch with any of fuboTV’s current plans. In fact, none of the Turner-owned channels are available through fuboTV. Even if opting to pay for one of the many add-ons that are available, fuboTV still won’t be a way for consumers to watch TNT.

Will fuboTV get TNT in the future?

While it is not uncommon for a live TV streaming service to add channels to its lineup, it remains to be seen if fuboTV will add TNT in the future. The reason for this is that the service did previously carry TNT. Back in 2020, fuboTV dropped Turner networks after being unable to strike a new carriage deal. This not only resulted in the loss of TNT, but also Cartoon Network, CNN, TBS, and truTV, among others.

Again, while this doesn’t mean that fuboTV won’t add them back again, re-adding channels is usually a more uncommon scenario than a service adding channels that it hasn’t carried before. At the same time, recent changes in the world of streaming may actually help to make the return of Turner networks to fuboTV more of a possibility.

When the Turner networks were dropped by fuboTV, they were under the wider WarnerMedia umbrella. Since then, WarnerMedia and Discovery have merged and are now operating jointly as Warner Bros. Discovery. The reason this is relevant is that fuboTV does provide access to various Discovery-owned channels. With the previous two companies now one, it is possible that any future deal could include both Discovery and Turner channels, including TNT. Of course, this could also mean fuboTV loses the various Discovery channels if a new deal can’t be agreed, so only time will tell how exactly the fuboTV channel lineup will evolve in the future.

fuboTV and TNT summary

fuboTV doesn’t offer TNT with any of its live TV plans. While the live TV streaming service did previously provide access to TNT, the channel was dropped back in 2020 along with various other Turner channels. Since then, TNT has remained unavailable as a channel bundled with a plan and through the various fuboTV add-ons.

While dropped channels don’t tend to make their way back into a live TV streaming service’s lineup, stranger things have happened. Not to mention, the recent joining for forces between WarnerMedia and Discovery opens up the possibility for a future deal between Warner Bros. Discovery and fuboTV that includes TNT.

Lawrence, I feel your pain with half of the NHL playoff games now on TNT. I only get half of the playoff games now with my ESPN+ subscription.

I am in the same boat and can’t stand missing these game! The NHL really did everyone a disservice when they allowed TNT and TBS to carry these games as their streaming services are terrible and don’t have any watch later/DVR type functions.

Totally agree…I got it to add Hockey and now can’t watch the Avalanche and Oilers! It’s crazy with all these stations. Let’s go back to rabbit ears when everything was free!

What the hell is wrong with FuboTV? The lack of inability to watch NHL playoffs games is crushing to fans.

For a streaming service that supposedly caters to sports fans, FuboTV apparently didn’t realize that NBA and NHL fans would miss playoff games because TNT/TBS broadcasts them?

Exactly right! I had to get Sling subscription JUST to get TNT. Of course you can’t add JUST TNT as an app like you can with Peacock or CNN or AMC and just pay for THAT app. No, I have to spend another $20 on a subscription to Sling. SMH…

I’m leaving Fubo if they don’t add TNT next season. I can’t stand missing playoff hockey.

Disappointed that Fubotv does not carry
TNT or TBS the good news is that more streaming options are available now which gives the subscribers more choices God Bless the USA we have choices
