Vidgo Mas is the streamer's bespoke plan for Spanish-language viewers. It has the main channels viewed by Hispanic households, including Unimas and Univision, and Spanish versions of popular channels like Sony Cine, History en Español, ESPN Deportes, and Nat Geo Mundo. Like Vidgo's Plus and Premium plans, Mas comes with 20 hours of cloud DVR, three simultaneous screens, and access to on-demand content. 

Unlike other Spanish plans, Vidgo Mas isn't available as an add-on. If you want both English and Latin American channels, then you'll have to subscribe to the Vidgo Ultimate plan (currently at a whopping $100/month), which combines all of Vidgo's live TV channels, regardless of language.

At only $33/month, it's Fubo's most affordable plan yet, but it still has base features like 250 hours worth of cloud DVR and two simultaneous streams. If you already have a Fubo base plan, Fubo also offers these channels as an add-on for $20/month.

For the diehard soccer fan, Fanatiz is a streaming service dedicated to Latin American and Spanish soccer. Here, you'll get access to live and on-demand matches held by La Liga and Copa Libertadores, as well as complete coverage of Brazil's intense local competition Brasileirão. It's available in most countries worldwide, but North American viewers, in particular, will be glad to know that Fanatiz carries beIN and TyC Sports—vital channels that have exclusive rights to stream select leagues. 

Fanatiz has an $8 and $10 monthly tier, the latter of which gives you access to even more leagues and hours of VOD content. But we suggest you try the platform first (free for a week) to really test its quality and see how it stacks up to other similarly inclined services, like FuboTV.
