NEW YORK–May 01, 2023– FuboTV Inc. (NYSE: FUBO), the leading sports-first live TV streaming platform, announced today that it is now a proud partner of the Boston Red Sox through a partnership for the 2023 season. The deal marks Fubo’s first partnership with a Major League Baseball team.

Fubo has complete coverage of regional sports networks (RSNs) in the Boston area, where it carries NBC Sports Boston as well as NESN.
In addition to coverage of baseball and other sports, Fubo also streams popular live entertainment and news programming and features more than 40,000 TV shows and movies on-demand each month.
“Fubo customers are very passionate about sports, and Boston sports fans are obviously very passionate about the Red Sox, making this partnership even more special,” said Yale Wang, SVP, marketing, Fubo. “Fubo is proud to be a partner of the Boston Red Sox this season. We’re looking forward to serving Red Sox fans with our sports-first premium platform, which was ranked #1 in Customer Satisfaction among Live TV Streaming Providers by J.D. Power.”
“The Boston Red Sox are proud to team up with Fubo as their first MLB Club relationship, and their industry leading status in sports streaming make them a natural choice as a partner of the club,” said Troup Parkinson, EVP, partnerships, Boston Red Sox. “We look forward to helping them provide Red Sox fans with additional benefits at Fenway Park and supporting their extensive gameday coverage through trusted partners like NESN.”
