fuboTV has upgraded its tvOS app, as the sports-centric OTT streaming service reports usage of its app on the Apple TV platform has more than doubled since exiting beta in October of last year.

The launch out of beta on Apple TV, which marked a significant product upgrade, including the addition of 30 hours of personal DVR storage, the ability to replay shows that aired in the last 72 hours and a new user interface, appears to be going well. fuboTV said the average number of hours streamed per user per month in December was up 53 percent over November of last year. The service did not provide figures for how many hours were streamed on average.

Additionally, from October to January, the share of overall fuboTV usage across all TV connected devices grew from about 30 percent to more than 50 percent, the company reported.

The upgraded tvOS features an enhanced program guide that allows users’ to look up programming up to seven days in the future. With a new network viewing option, users select a TV network’s icon to view all of the live and VOD content available from that channel. Additionally, now viewers have the ability to pause and rewind live TV.

Last week, fuboTV announced it had added 14 more local stations including nine NBC affiliates, and five CBS affiliates. To date, the service carries 140 local TV stations, along with access to Fox network programming in 45 additional local markets. Also in January, fuboTV added Showtime to its lineup of premium content, as a $10.99 per month add-on option.

fuboTV announced last October that it had surpassed the 100,000 subscribers mark.
