Per the memo, obtained by Multichannel News, fuboTV also saw more than 150,000 total viewers with average concurrent per minute streams coming in at just below 60,000 during Super Bowl Sunday.

fuboTV announced last October that the service had eclipsed 100,000 subscribers, but has yet to provide an updated sub count.

fuboTV, the exec added, saw 57% of viewing take place on TV-connected devices, and that the service turned in a record low buffer rate of 0.49% from 6 p.m. – 11 p.m. ET.

Heading into the weekend, fuboTV said it added 23 additional local NBC stations, expanding its coverage from 51% to 70% of U.S. households. That compared to its local Fox coverage (75%) and CBS coverage (63%).
