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.

What is Tubi TV?

Tubi TV is a streaming platform similar to 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.

How much does Tubi TV cost?

Tubi is free to use for everyone as the service makes money through ads. There isn't a premium version to upgrade to.

How to watch Tubi TV

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.

What content is on Tubi?

Tubi offers a library consisting of TV shows and movies from multiple content partners, most notably 20th Century Studios. The service was purchased by Fox Corporation in 2020.

The bulk of the offerings 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.

The service invests in original content as well. In May 2022, for instance, they announced that they plan to add over 100 original TV shows and movies to the platform in the following 12 months. Original productions include animated TV series The Freak Brothers and movies like Deadly Cheer Mom, Swim and Lord of the Streets.
