Fubo, a live TV streaming service, announced on Tuesday the opening of a new consolidated data center, which it thinks will improve the speed and quality of its video transmission.

The change should help Fubo handle the demands of live streaming better, resulting in a more enjoyable experience for customers. The move may not be evident immediately away, but it might pay off when Fubo’s viewership increases and company has to service more subscribers.

With this update, one important prospect for Fubo is the ability to eliminate the delay between streaming and cable TV. Higher speed and fewer latency periods mean faster loading streams and faster access to your favorite channels.
