How to fix the issue?

If you cannot use FuboTV on your Samsung TV, we have explained a few ways to help you resolve the issue.

Check the internet connection

Ensure that your Samsung TV is connected to a stable internet connection. Slow or intermittent internet speeds can cause streaming issues, leading to problems with FuboTV. Check other devices connected to the same network to confirm whether the issue lies with your Samsung TV or the internet connection. Restart the router and check if the issue persists.

Restart your Samsung TV

A simple restart can resolve most of the temporary glitches. Turn off your Samsung TV, unplug it from the power source, wait for a few minutes, and then plug it back in. Power it on again and try accessing FuboTV to see if the issue persists.

Ensure that the Samsung Tv is compatible with FuboTV

The FuboTV app exclusively functions on Samsung smart TV models released in 2016 or later, all operating on Samsung’s Tizen OS. You can visit their website to determine the year and operating system version of your Samsung TV.

If your TV predates 2016, you can purchase a new TV or use a streaming stick. Opting for a streaming stick is a more affordable and convenient alternative.

Update the FuboTV app

Outdated apps can often lead to compatibility issues. Ensure that your FuboTV app is up to date on your Samsung TV. To check for updates of the app, go to the App Store and navigate to the FuboTv app and update it, if available or you can visit the FuboTV website to check for the updates.
