Tubi TV is a completely free streaming service featuring thousands of TV shows and films. The app is free to use because of its reliance on ads – so get ready to see a lot of commercials before and during anything you’d like to watch.
There is no anything extraordinary about the interface of the app, and it doesn’t really differ from other services. Right from the start you can access the Featured page with recommended films or use the search to find something specific. All in all, any film the app has, is just a few clicks away from any page, so you don’t have to scroll through different options or do anything equally annoying.
The key feature of Tubi TV is that it is completely free. Even if you are willing to pay in order to get premium content or get rid of commercials, there is just no such option. The developers of the app insist on the ad-based monetization model, so you have to be patient and watch ads anyway. Luckily, those ads are usually short and not very annoying, although they tend to pop up very unexpectedly.
Tubi TV has a lot of content for a free app, with more than 50,000 titles in its library. All films come properly licensed, and there are a lot of new films and shows appearing every year. Some of them are obvious fillers to watch only when you’re really bored, but there are also many TV shows and even anime. The features are not prominent enough to compete with big streaming services, but Tubi TV is definitely great in its niche.
Due to its huge library and convenient design, Tubi TV is very comfortable to use. Sure, it lacks any original content in which Netflix invests so much money in, and almost all noteworthy content is at least a few years old. But a lot of films are featured here, and you can find real gems among them if you know where to look. And there’s a lot of genres available, so everyone can discover something suitable for him.
Moreover, the developers keep spending more and more every year on licensed content, so the app gets more interesting and diverse every day. You just have to choose a genre and then pick films to add them to queue, which is a very nice option that helps you organize your playlist without forgetting anything.
This version of the Tubi TV is designed to work with Android devices, but the app is accessible from almost any modern device you’d like to use, including iPhones and iPads. You don’t even have to create an account, and you can start to use the app right after you install it.
Tubi TV is a great app for those who don’t like the idea of paying for their favorite films. It doesn’t try to beat big streaming services like Netflix in creating original content, but there are a lot of licensed flicks and shows to choose from. All in all, it is definitely worth a try even if you have no financial difficulties – you can always find something unique here you won’t see on other platforms.
