In a new "Voices of Wall Street," host Hope King speaks with Andrew Freedman, Hedgeye's Communications Sector Head, about his bear case for fuboTV.

fuboTV, along with many investors, is optimistic about the opportunity in streaming subscriptions, connected TV advertising, and sports betting. However, Freedman says the company has a small probability of surviving due to the "structurally unprofitable, broken" business model.

Freedman adds that fuboTV is expanding into sports betting because it knows the streaming business is unsustainable as a standalone unit, but argues the costs of launching a sportsbook will be difficult to manage. Freedman admits there are two paths for fuboTV to achieve long-term success, and lays out the scenarios for fuboTV to emerge as a winner in the streaming wars.
