FuboTV files antitrust suit against Disney, Fox, Warner to prevent the merger

New Delhi, 22-February-2024, By IBW Team

Sports-focused streaming service FuboTV has filed an antitrust lawsuit against Walt Disney, Fox, and Warner Bros Discovery over a planned sports streaming platform by the companies, Fubo said on Tuesday.

The launch of the joint venture “will destroy competition and inflate prices for consumers,” Fubo said in its statement.

Warner Bros Discovery, Fox as well as ESPN, which is part of Disney’s sports division, declined to comment when contacted by Reuters.

Earlier in February, Fox Corp, Disney’s ESPN, and Warner Bros Discovery had disclosed plans to launch a sports streaming service later this autumn to capture younger viewers who are not tuned in to television.

The joint venture is aimed at creating a new service, combining the media companies’ broad portfolio of professional and collegiate sports rights, which span the National Football League, the National Basketball Association, Major League Baseball, the FIFA World Cup, and college competitions.

The service, which is yet to be named, is expected to offer an all-in-one programming package that would include television channels, such as ESPN, TNT, and FS1, as well as streamed sports content.
