NEW YORK - FuboTV Inc. (NYSE: NYSE:FUBO), a prominent player in the sports-first live TV streaming arena, has struck a carriage agreement with Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN), enhancing its baseball coverage by adding the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals to its lineup.

The deal, announced today, will see MASN's full coverage of both teams' games, including pre- and postgame shows, available to Fubo subscribers in a seven-state region stretching from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to Charlotte, North Carolina.

The partnership comes just in time for the 2024 Major League Baseball Opening Day on March 28, 2024, and is set to deliver over 500 live events annually, encompassing NCAA Division I men's and women's sports. With this addition, Fubo reinforces its position as a go-to destination for local sports content, already offering a substantial catalog of over 55,000 live sporting events each year.

Fubo's comprehensive sports package, which streams many events in 4K, includes access to over 35 regional sports networks, MLB.TV, MLB Network, and MLB Strike Zone, as well as local broadcast networks and national sports channels like ESPN and FS1. The service also provides a wide array of live entertainment and news programming, along with a hefty on-demand library of TV shows and movies.

Todd Mathers, Fubo's senior vice president of content strategy and acquisition, expressed enthusiasm about bringing more baseball to fans in the mid-Atlantic region and emphasized Fubo's commitment to local sports. John McGuinness, senior vice president of MASN, echoed this sentiment, highlighting the partnership's potential to connect Orioles and Nationals fans with their favorite teams through a significant new platform.

FuboTV Inc. aims to revolutionize the TV industry by consolidating top-tier sports, news, and entertainment content into a single app. In the U.S., Fubo stands out as the only live TV streaming service to offer every Nielsen-rated sports channel.

The company has been a pioneer in the live TV streaming space, being the first to introduce features like 4K streaming and MultiView, as well as Instant Headlines, an AI-powered feature that generates live news topics.

This latest agreement between Fubo and MASN is expected to bring enhanced value to Fubo's subscribers and expand the reach of both the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals. The information reported is based on a press release statement.
