The live-streaming service will integrate the Fubo Sportsbook to provide free-to-play sports contests.

FuboTV will become the first company to use its live-streaming service along with the Fubo Sportsbook to provide fans the chance to participate in free-to-play sports contests. The first set of pick'em games will be unveiled this weekend.

By scanning a QR code, pick'em players in select markets will have direct access to the Fubo Sportsbook to place real money wagers as well. This feature marks another incorporation of FuboTV and its owned-and-operated real-money wagering platform.

Through the Fubo home screen, participants will be able to predict the outcome of select live sporting events. These pick'em games will be made available prior to the start of the event each Sunday. 

The service offers a variety of contests which includes Perfect Pick'ems. Instead of real-money earnings, players can earn points and compete with the FuboTV community and their friends who are using the same platform. 

Pick’ems launch on Sunday, June 19 to select FuboTV subscribers and will roll out to the company’s user base in the following months to come.

FuboTV Chief Product Officer Mike Berkley said: "With this weekend’s launch, FuboTV will become the first live TV streaming platform to offer pick’em games integrated into the video experience with a direct gateway to an owned-and-operated sportsbook."

Berkley added: "We believe interactivity is a key product differentiator for Fubo and, with these immersive experiences built into our live streaming product, we can offer the most personalizedand customizablesports and entertainment television experience."

The company plans to continue integrating the Fubo Sportsbook with FuboTV by adding additional features such as live odds after regulatory approvals are granted. 

Fubo Gaming President Scott Butera said: "While other media companies are entering into external partnerships with betting companies, FuboTV and Fubo Sportsbook have combined both into one ecosystem."

Butera continued: "The launch of pick’ems will further demonstrate FuboTV’s unique product integration and commitment to offering fans real-time immersive experiences across multiple touchpoints."

The mobile sportsbook, Fubo Sportsbook, was launched in 2021 with the intention of being integrated into FuboTV.
