fuboTV Links Up With Former NBA Star Gilbert Arenas For Original Show on fubo Sports Network
Three-time NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas is joining fuboTV when his The No Chill Podcast is reimagined as “No Chill with Gilbert Arenas” for fubo Sports Network beginning on May 4. No Chill with Gilbert Arenas joins a lineup of new original shows, movies and documentaries airing this spring on the free-to-consumer TV network.
Through a partnership with Arenas’ No Chill Productions, the weekly No Chill with Gilbert Arenas becomes a vodcast, where one of basketball’s most unique characters shares his truly original perspective on the game. Joined by his co-host Mike Botticello, along with his colleagues throughout the sport, from players, to coaches, media personalities and future stars, Agent Zero offers up his unrivaled point of view and draws our attention to a different way of looking at the game of basketball…and life around it.
“When I got started with The No Chill Podcast, I wanted to share everything that I knew about basketball with my fans,” said Arenas. “Bringing it to fubo Sports Network, I wanted to bring it to the next level, shining a light on what I love about the game and its future stars.”
In addition to No Chill with Gilbert Arenas, new fubo Sports Network partners and programming include:
Law&Crime Network- Sports Court, hosted by Law&Crime anchor/attorney Brian Buckmire, examines the week’s top legal and sports stories. The two minute segments are produced by the Law&Crime Network exclusively for fubo Sports Network.

fubo Sports Network is also adding dozens of movies and documentaries to its lineup through new deals with studios Gunpowder & Sky (including In Football We Trust, 365 Days, A Year in Happy Valley) and 1091 Media (including Ambassadors of Hoops featuring Kobe Bryant, Fathers of Football, Girl on Wave and The Sheik). These titles will be added to fubo Sports Network’s Double Play Movie Night featuring back-to-back sports movies and documentaries every Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
fubo Sports Network’s partnerships with Gunpowder & Sky and 1091 Media, as well as a previously-announced deal with Gravitas, will also extend to fuboTV, giving subscribers access to sports and entertainment VOD movies anytime, anywhere.
“At a time when everyone is missing the thrill of live sports, we sought to ramp up fubo Sports Network’s original programming with compelling and inspiring sports stories,” said Pamela Duckworth, head of fubo Sports Network and original programming. “There is no storyteller more original than Gilbert Arenas, and we are thrilled he chose fubo Sports Network for his podcast’s television debut. I’m really excited about our spring programming lineup, and I look forward to adding back live sports as soon as it is safe.”
This new programming joins fubo Sports Network’s existing slate of talent-driven original programming including Call It a Night with Julie Stewart-Binks, Drinks with Binks and The Cooligans; live sports; and shows from partners FanDuel, The Players’ Tribune, Stadium, USA TODAY, VSiN and more.
