How to Watch Fubo on LG Smart TV

With many people cutting the cord with their cable and satellite providers, live TV services like Fubo are surging in popularity. If you own an LG smart TV and have a Fubo subscription, then you can download the Fubo app and start watching in five simple steps. Fubo is a great option for live TV since it has several packages available at cheaper rates than traditional cable or satellite services.

Before you get started, you must know that Fubo is not an on-demand service like Netflix. Instead, you get access to linear TV channels like ESPN, Nickelodeon, Discovery, and Comedy Central. Not only can you watch these channels on your LG smart TV, but you can also stream on the go with a smartphone. Now, let’s get Fubo added to your LG smart TV.

How to Watch Fubo on LG Smart TV

Adding Fubo is pretty simple, but before we get started, make sure that your TV is already connected to the internet with either a wired or wireless connection. If this is your first time using the TV, you will also need to complete the initial setup process and create an LG account to use the store. After that, you are ready to get started.

Step 1: Open the LG Store

The LG Store is accessible through the Apps tile on the homescreen.


First, hit the home icon on your remote to go to the home screen. Go to the LG Store by scrolling down to the line of apps. Then, scroll to the right until you get to the tile that says “Apps.” Click on the tile to enter the LG app store.

Step 2: Search for Fubo

Search for the Fubo app with the on-screen keyboard or voice commands.


Once you are in the store, ignore all of the content and go to the magnifying glass icon in the upper right to start a search. In the search box, type in “Fubo” and click the “Search” button. If your remote has a microphone, now is a good time to use voice commands to avoid typing.

Step 3: Select the Fubo App

Choose the official Fubo app from the list of search results.


After running the search, you may see a couple of apps at the top of the screen. Choose “Fubo Watch Live TV & Sports.” You may find out that Fubo is already installed on your TV; if it is, you will have the option to update and launch it. Otherwise, you will go to the app store’s Fubo page.

Step 4: Download and Install Fubo

What’s on Fubo?

Fubo has over 100 popular channels like TLC, ESPN, and CNN. With Fubo, you can watch all of the included channels live, just like you would with a cable TV package. The only difference is you access the content through the internet with a streaming device. Each Fubo package offers different channels, but each one has a lot of variety, including sports, news, reality TV, and kid’s content.

Fubo Subscriptions

Fubo offers three main subscription packages, including Pro, Elite, and Premier. Pro has 176 channels for $74.99 per month. Upgrading to Elite gives you 243 channels for $84.99 per month, but it also includes 4K content. The Premier package has 252 channels for 94.99 per month, plus it includes 4K and Showtime.

Each of these packages also comes with 1,000 hours of cloud DVR, and you can stream 10 screens at once. Fubo also offers a fourth package called Latino, which includes 60 channels in Spanish for $32.99. The Latino package comes with 250 hours of cloud DVR, and you can stream two screens simultaneously. Just like conventional cable and satellite packages, there are add-ons like Family Share.

Wrapping Up

Fubo is a great replacement for traditional cable and satellite packages since it is affordable, and you can cancel at any time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Fubo an alternative to cable?

Yes, it is best to think about Fubo as an alternative to cable rather than a traditional streaming service. With Fubo you can watch linear TV channels, but you cannot choose what TV show or movie to watch on demand.

Does Fubo have commercials?

Yes, because Fubo is essentially the same as cable or satellite, you will still have the same commercial breaks in the middle of shows. Unfortunately, you cannot skip past these commercials, and there is no ad-free version.

Do you have to sign a contract with Fubo?

Fubo does not lock you into a contract like many cable and satellite providers. While there is often an introductory period offered at a discount, you are not required to keep the subscription. Therefore, you can cancel the subscription at any time.

How many streams can you have with Fubo?

The Pro, Elite, and Premier packages allow up to ten streams at once in the same home. You can also pay $9.99 more for unlimited screens within the same home. There is also a Family Share add-on that lets three people outside of your home watch Fubo for only $5.99 per month.

Does Fubo have 4K content?

Fubo does have 4K content, which is included in the Elite and Premier tiers. However, there are only a few channels in 4K, which are mostly sports. These 4K channels only broadcast select events in ultra-high definition.
