The streaming wars are in full swing, with new online platforms popping up regularly trying to get a piece of the subscriber pie. This makes Tubi TV quite appealing, as the service is completely free to use. You don't even have to register if you don't feel like it.
What's the catch? You'll need to watch a few ads to make it through to the end of whatever you're streaming. If that doesn't bother you, read on. We've got everything you need to know to get started with the service.
Tubi TV is a streaming platform similar to the likes of Netflix and Stan. It launched in the US in 2014 and became available in Australia in late 2019. The service offers thousands of movies and TV series, which are available to watch for free. You simply need to access the website or download the app and you're good to go.
Tubi TV doesn't offer subscriptions – instead, you'll have to sit through a bunch of unskippable ads during programming.
Tubi is completely free to use for everyone, as the service makes money through ads. There isn't a premium version to upgrade to.
All you need to do to start watching Tubi TV is to access the website or download the app and you're good to go. You can register on the service to receive personalised recommendations and create a watchlist, but it's not mandatory.
Tubi offers a library consisting of content from studios like Paramount, Lionsgate, MGM and more. The bulk is made of B movies, so titles you probably haven't heard of until now. Still, the platform also hosts some classic movies, interesting documentaries and a few appealing TV shows. Since everything is free, we can't get too picky about the selection.
Tubi works with a variety of devices so you can watch on screens big and small. Here's the list:
- Computers: All major browsers
- Smartphones and tablets: Android, iOS
- TV: Samsung Smart TVs, Sony Smart TVs (Android)
- Streaming devices: Amazon Fire TV/Stick, Apple TV, Telstra TV
