FuboTV launched a revamped beta version that features more than double the number of channels that were previously available.

The relaunch follows a slate of deals announced in December with the streaming service, including agreements to add regional sports networks from Fox Sports and NBCU. Fubo’s entry level bundle is priced at the discounted rate of $34.99 per month and includes RSNs and NBCU and Fox Network Group’s owned-and-operate stations.

FuboTV launched in January 2015, with an emphasis on sports content. Fittingly, the beta rollout comes in time for the upcoming Champions League Round of 16 soccer games (Feb. 14-15 on FS1). Plenty of other sporting events are coming up, including the Daytona 500 (Feb. 26 on Fox), the UFC 208 prelims (Feb. 11 on FS1), EPL and NHL games (on NBC and NBCSN), and basketball match-ups (both NBA & college hoops).

The deals also bring more entertainment offerings to the fuboTV package, including A&E and Lifetime. In December, fubo hired its first CFO, bringing former AT&T AdWorks financial chief Joel Armijo.
