Sports lovers finally have a streaming service that combines all the best sports broadcasts under one roof — and then some.
Fubo TV (stylized as fuboTV) is an on-demand streaming platform that has the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, and MLS along with TV series and movies. It’s quite a steal given how much content you get access to in one subscription.
But there’s a catch.
It’s only available for US residents. If you’re living anywhere else in the world, you can’t sign up for a fuboTV account.
But if you really want to watch fuboTV outside the US, there is a way to do it. By the end of this post, you should have all the information you need to start streaming fuboTV content right away.
What Is fuboTV?
As alluded to earlier, fuboTV is a one-stop-shop for sports-related content. It started as a streaming service for football (soccer) fans but soon included other sports titles in its library.
Today, fuboTV offers content outside of sports. You can now use fuboTV to watch TV series and movies. There’s even cartoons there for the kids and the kids at heart.
The company positions itself as an alternative to the traditional cable subscriptions and it ideal for those who believe in the cord-cutting movement that online platforms provide these days.
Currently, fuboTV does not offer its services for those who reside outside the US.
Why Should You Watch fuboTV?
FuboTV offers various features that make it a compelling alternative to traditional cable TV. Below are just a few of them.
Reason #1: It Offers Channels, Not Shows
Unlike streaming services like Hulu and Crunchyroll that offer shows to watch, fuboTV offers channels. There are over 90 channels on the platform including A&E, Bravo, Comedy Central, Hallmark Channel, and Viceland.
Of course, it has sports channels as well.
Reason #2: It Comes With a DVR Feature
If you’re used to DVRing your favorite programs, fuboTV has a cloud DVR feature built-in. This lets you record up to 30 hours on content. If that’s not enough for you, you can upgrade that to 500 hours for an additional $10/month.
You can keep whatever you DVR for as long as you like.
Reason #3: It Supports 4K Content
If you have a 4K monitor/TV, you’d want to make the most out of it. FuboTV has a lot of 4K sports content. In fact, it might have the most 4K content out of all TV streaming services.
And it’s not just for sports too.
Some of the shows that you can stream on fuboTV at 4K are documentaries and movies. The platform plans on releasing even more high-quality programming in the near future.
FuboTV has a nice mix of shows with sports like American football, soccer, baseball, and more being well-represented.

How to Watch fuboTV Outside the US
Here’s some good news for you: You don’t need to buy special tools or download any software to enjoy fuboTV from outside the United States.
What you do need, however, is a subscription to a Smart DNS or VPN service provider like Getflix.
For those who are unfamiliar, VPN stands for virtual private network. It’s best known for securing your activity online. However, you can also use it to bypass regional blocks that prevent you from accessing services like fuboTV.
Once you’re subscribed to Getflix, you can configure your DNS settings to get fuboTV to work on any of the devices you plan on using.
If that sounds complicated, rest assured that it’s not.
We’ll walk you through the process.
Step #1: Subscribe to a Getflix Free Trial
Getflix has a 14-day free trial for first-time users. It doesn’t require you to enter your credit card details. All you’ll need is an active email address.
After you enter your email address, check your inbox. Getflix will send you a confirmation email. Click the specified link in the email to finish the registration.
Once complete, you will have access to the Getflix dashboard.
Step #2: Locate Your DNS Server
From your dashboard, check your IP Address Status. Unless something unforeseen happened during the setup stage, your IP address should be labeled as registered.
Do note that your IP address could change over time depending on your ISP provider. If that happens, there a force update button that you could press to restore the connection.
Next, scroll down a bit and you should find your DNS status.
Unlike your IP address, your DNS settings should not be configured at this point.
Here’s how you update your DNS settings.
You need to find the DNS server closest to your region/country. Here’s a list of DNS servers you could use. If you live near Spain, for example, then you should use 188.8.131.52 as your DNS server.
Step #3: Change Your DNS Server
You have two options. You can change the DNS server through your router or change the DNS server on every device you intend to use.
What’s the difference?
Updating your router will ensure that any device connected to it can access fuboTV. This is the more convenient route. However, those who are not familiar with their router settings might find this process inconvenient. But if you plan to update your DNS through your router, consult your user manual as every brand is different.
The easier method would be to change the DNS settings on your device.
For now, we’ll show you how to update the DNS server on Windows computers.
Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center.
Go to View Your Active Connections and click Connections. If you’re using Ethernet, your connection will show Ethernet. Those who use WiFi will see Wireless Network Connection instead.
In the window that will pop up, click Properties.
This will trigger another window to open. Open the Networking tab. From the list of connections, look for Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).
Once selected, click Properties.
Go to the General tab. You should find a field labeled Use the Following DNS Server Addresses. There, you’ll see two empty fields.
In the Preferred DNS Server field, enter the DNS server you selected (the one closest to your location). If you found another DNS server that’s also near you, you can enter it on the Alternate DNS Server field.
Once finished, click OK.
That’s it. You should now have access to fuboTV. Go back to the Getflix dashboard and check your DNS status to confirm.
Step #4: Activate Your VPN (Optional)
If you skipped the free trial and signed up for a Getflix plan straight away, you should have the option to activate your VPN.
Turning on your VPN not only secures your activity online, but it also prevents cybercriminals, ISP providers, and government agencies from tracking your movements while browsing the web.
It’s an additional layer of security that will give you peace of mind.
There’s no denying the impact that the NFL has had in the lives of Americans everywhere. But despite its popularity, access to the sport is still somewhat limited given how blackout policies still exist.
