Over the course of 2022, we undertook bold measures to position our business for today’s challenging macroeconomic environment. We furthermore believe that Fubo’s model will prove to be resilient, profitable, and poised to continue to deliver a truly differentiated consumer experience while providing our media partners with a growing distribution platform.”

We believe our continued subscriber growth gives us real leverage in partner negotiations and we are more closely examining which content aligns with our profitability goals. Additionally, we believe our Unified Platform initiative, which will integrate Molotov’s team and technology, will drive further innovation enabling us to deliver a premium experience that surprises and delights our customers. We remain very excited about the opportunity in front of us.”
