Yesterday, Fubo confirmed that Maximum Effort Channel was set to be added to its channel lineup on June 20. At the time, it was also noted that the channel would become available through other streaming services as well, although no mention of which ones was provided.

Today, it has now been confirmed that the channel will be available to access through a variety of additional provides, and on the same day, June 20.

The news confirms that Maximum Effort Channel will be widely available through free platforms, and on a variety of different devices, including Hisense, LG and Vizio smart TVs.

For those without one of these TVs, Amazon Freevee, Plex, Sling Freestream, and Xumo Play are all available as standalone free streaming services with their own apps available to download on a variety of platforms and devices.

At the live TV level, and in addition to Fubo, today’s news confirms that Sling TV subscribers will be able to watch Maximum Effort Channel. While Freestream is a free service, access is automatically available to all paying Sling TV subscribers through their existing Sling TV apps. That said, Freestream is still a work in progress so some subscribers may find it is not yet available within apps on some devices.


Along with the availability of Maximum Effort Channel comes a new Bedtime Stories with Ryan show. As the name implies, this show will focus on Ryan Reynolds reading a bedtime story to the viewer.
