Fubo vs Paramount+: which is better?

Obviously, the much pricier Fubo has a lot more to offer than Paramount+. At a whopping $80/month, Fubo has more than a hundred channels (including local and sports), unlimited DVR, and simultaneous screens. It's great if you're looking for the complete package, but if you're after something much, much leaner, then maybe Paramount+'s $12/month subscription is a better fit for you. It only has a handful of live channels, but they're enough to cover the basics—CBS for sports and news, Nickelodeon for the kids, and channels like Comedy Central and BET for entertainment. But its real assets are on-demand films and TV shows, which are supplied by Paramount Pictures and the newly acquired Showtime. So, which is the better streaming service? If you're a fully-fledged sports fan, Fubo is the clear winner, but if you're a less-is-more kind of person (or original content is a priority for you), then you'll be content with Paramount+.
