FuboTV announced in January that it secured exclusive U.S. rights (all languages excluding Spanish and Portuguese) to stream select matches from UEFA through a six-year sublicense with FOX Sports. In addition to UEFA Nations League™, FuboTV will stream European Qualifiers to UEFA Euro 2024 and 2028™, European Qualifiers to FIFA World Cup 2026™, Friendly Matches played by European nations controlled by UEFA, UEFA Euro2024™ (five matches) and UEFA Euro2028™ (five matches). Through its exclusive matches and the company's carriage agreement with FOX Sports, subscribers can enjoy complete UEFA coverage with FuboTV.

FuboTV's exclusive UEFA Nations League™ coverage will stream live on Fubo Sports Network, which is available as part of FuboTV's base plan of 100+ sports, news and entertainment channels. Select UEFA Nations League™ matches will stream live on Fubo Sports Network through its distribution partners including Hisense Smart TVs, LG Channels, Sports on Tubi, Plex, Samsung TV Plus, The Roku Channel, Vizio Channels and XUMO.

The company has not announced any additional distribution partnerships with PPV beyond the four June 2022 UEFA Nations League™ matches at this time.
