Online television platform FuboTV Jan. 19 announced it has expanded its “Multiview” mode on Apple TV to support elements of its “FanView” feature as the company continues to integrate interactivity into its live-TV streaming service.
The updates come as FuboTV continues rolling out real-money wagering with Fubo Sportsbook, an app that syncs with the live TV streaming on FuboTV. Fubo Sportsbook is currently available in Iowa and Arizona with additional states to follow pending regulatory approvals.
Subscribers can now create their own custom sports viewing dashboard on Apple TV combining multiple streams (Multiview) with live stats and scores (FanView), configured on screen just as they like. With this latest technology, subs can watch up to two live sporting events simultaneously while also placing different FanView widgets right alongside each video player. FanView widget options include statistics of each live game being viewed as well as scores from games across all of the top leagues. While in FanView’s scoreboard widget, subs can also navigate through live scores and, with one click, go directly into a selected game, no channel change required.
Subscribers who do not want to enable FanView can continue to stream up to four sports, news and entertainment channels simultaneously while in Multiview mode on Apple TV. The updated Multiview feature is currently available for select subs and will be rolled out nationwide in the coming days.
“Live sports in particular perfectly lends itself to enhanced viewing experiences,” Mike Berkley, chief product officer for FuboTV, said in a statement. “We know our subscribers want to keep track of multiple games and leagues, and they want to engage with what they’re watching. We believe this is the most personalized and customized TV viewing experience available on the market.”
