fuboTV Removes 6 Popular Channels From Its Streaming Lineup

Written by |

Are you a fuboTV subscriber? You may be disappointed to learn that your number of channel options just shrunk.

As of July 1, there are some popular television channels that are no longer available on the live TV streaming service.

In this article, I’ll look at the channels that are going way, explore the explanation and consider some alternative streaming services that may better serve customers who want to access these channels.

These 6 Channels Are No Longer Included With a fuboTV Subscription

fuboTV has decided to drop the A&E family of networks.

That means users no longer have access to the following channels through any of the fuboTV subscription packages:

  • A&E
  • History Channel
  • Lifetime
  • Lifetime Movie Network
  • FYI Channel
  • Vice

This means fans of popular shows such as Intervention, Hoarders, Pawn Stars, Swamp People and Super Nanny are going to need to find a new streaming service to continue watching these shows on live TV.

Why Is fuboTV Doing This?

It appears that fuboTV decided not to renew a contract with the A&E family of networks after the end of June.

According to a report from The Streamable, fuboTV representatives say this was a decision made to “balancing value and keeping costs as low as possible for consumers.”

In other words, the cost to keep those six networks was presumably about to go up and fuboTV was not prepared to eat that cost or to raise subscription prices.

This isn’t the first time that fuboTV, which is considered a sports-centric streaming service, has had to make a tough decision on non-sports content. In 2020, it dropped the Turner family of networks (TBS, TNT, etc.) based on a similar line of thinking.


What Streaming Services Still Offer These Channels?

If these channels are deal breakers for you as a fuboTV subscriber, you may be wondering what to do.

The cheapest alternative that has all six of these channels included with a subscription is Philo at $25 per month. But you’ll be sacrificing a lot of the live sports and news that you get with fuboTV if you make the switch to Philo.

Hulu + Live TV is another option that carries all six of these channels. It is the same base price as fuboTV at $64.99 per month.

What Is Left on fuboTV

It’s easy to get frustrated when a streaming service removes channels without lowering your subscription price. Customers are right to say, “Hey, I was paying you for those channels!”

But many fuboTV customers or potential customers may still be happy with this channel lineup.

Here’s a look at the channels you can still stream via fuboTV’s two packages:


Final Thoughts

fuboTV had a tough decision to make when it decided to let the A&E family of networks go.


And that decision may make some customers unhappy enough to make a change.

However, many fuboTV customers arrived at this as their streaming home due, at least in part, to the robust sports content, and that remains intact.

If you’re a fuboTV customer who’s on the fence about changing after this news, please take advantage of Team Clark’s ever-expanding library of streaming articles to assist you with the decision-making process.
