NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FaceBank Group, Inc. (d/b/a fuboTV) (OTCQB: FUBO) has added Tastemade’s streaming network -- featuring programming in the categories of Food, Travel, and Home & Design -- to its live TV streaming platform.
Starting today, fuboTV subscribers have live and on-demand access to Tastemade’s premium lifestyle programming including Struggle Meals, Make This Tonight and the James Beard Award-winning Broken Bread, which follows acclaimed Chef Roy Choi as he showcases inspiring people making a difference in their communities through food.
Tastemade is included in the fubo Standard package which offers over 100 sports, news, and entertainment channels, including kids and family programming, for $54.99/month following a free seven-day trial.
“Adding Tastemade allows fubo to expand our lead as the live streaming TV service that provides the most value to customers,” said Mihir Shah, senior director, content strategy and acquisition, fuboTV. “We’re excited to partner with a modern company that has such an engaged audience like Tastemade, and bring their compelling lifestyle programming to cord-cutters.”
“We are excited about the launch of Tastemade on fuboTV, making our food, travel, and home & design programming available across the fubo platform,” said Jeremy Strauss, head of business development, Tastemade. “We believe that our programming is a great addition to fuboTV's lifestyle and entertainment offering and their continued growth into a broader cable TV replacement platform.”
