Fubo will continue to offer Nexstar stations under new agreement

Streaming service Fubo has extended its agreement with Nexstar Media Group that covers dozens of local television stations and NewsNation, the companies announced on Wednesday.

The agreement will keep Nexstar’s ABC and MyNetwork affiliates, CW Network owned-and-operated stations and independent broadcast outlets on the sports-centric service for a few more years.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Nearly 90 local television stations are part of the deal, which includes 37 CW Network stations, 23 ABC affiliates and 25 MyNetwork programming distributors, Nexstar said.

The agreement doesn’t cover Nexstar-owned Fox, CBS and NBC stations, which are negotiated under a different agreement.

Fubo costs $75 per month before taxes and fees (most customers will be charged an extra $11 to $14 per month for one or more regional sports channels, depending on where they live), and includes access to local ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and CW Network affiliates across the country, along with national channels like Fox News, MSNBC, ESPN, Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2.
