FuboTV is planning to add sports betting to their app later this year. It's one of the ways they think that their service -- which continues to lose money -- will finally become profitable. Of course, they don't have the RSNs in their line-up (or TBS or TNT, which air a fair number of NBA and MLB games), so that's a lot of games they can't take bets on. Given the relatively small number of subs that FuboTV has (still under 700k) and the ease with which their internet-connected subs can instead place bets on any game in much more popular apps like DraftKings, Bet MGM and FanDuel, I'm skeptical that FuboTV can ever become profitable without a significant price hike. (Being so small, they obviously have higher per-sub channel carriage costs than do the big boys.) But raising prices, of course, would probably spell their demise since their relatively cheap price is by far the main reason anyone chooses it over other options.Still separately owned by Sinclair, but the "synergy" that will come from gambling tie ins is one more reason not to watch RSNs. Certainly a good reason not to pay for them. Maybe we could get Bally's to pay for distributing the channels?
Feels a lot like PS Vue 2.0 to me.
