“FanDuel TV is the first network designed from the ground up to be watched by viewers with their phone in hand,” Mike Raffensperger, Chief Commercial Officer, FanDuel, said in a news release. 

FanDuel TV will be distributed on linear television through its relationships with cable and satellite distributors, including Comcast Xfinity, Spectrum, Verizon FIOS, DirectTV, DISH, Cox Communications, FuboTV, YouTubeTV, and Hulu. 

FanDuel+ will also be widely available on direct-to-consumer OTT platforms, including Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire. 

“We intend for FanDuel TV to sit at the intersection of live sports and interactive content and believe Kay is the best example of an on-air talent who can bring fans closer to the narratives of the games they care about most. Our goal is to provide fans compelling programming to watch and wager on in tandem with our mobile app.”
