FuboTV has inked a streaming deal with NBC Universal for access to 2,400 hours of the network’s multiplatform coverage of the Olympic Winter Games Feb. 8-25 from Pyeongchang, South Korea. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Sports-themed fuboTV, whose investors include 21st Century Fox, Sky and Scripps Networks Interactive, costs $34.99 monthly for 42 channels following an introductory two-month $19.99 monthly fee.
Live streaming of the Games is available only in markets where fuboTV carries the NBC network – about 70% of U.S. households.
“The Winter Olympics is a great example of the breadth and depth of live sports that our subscribers can stream … thanks to our partnership with NBC Universal,” Ben Grad, head of content strategy and acquisition at fuboTV, said in a statement.
In addition to coverage on NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, USA Network and Olympic Channel, viewers can access competition and ceremonies online at NBCOlympics.com, the NBC Sports app, Hulu With Live TV, YouTube TV, Sling TV Blue, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue and CenturyLink Stream.
