Watch out, Netflix - a new streaming service has hit the scene, and it’s giving viewers access to all of its movies and TV shows for free.
Tubi is an ad-supported media library that consists of a wide array of over 50,000 licensed titles from over the years. It holds key partnerships with Lionsgate, Paramount, MGM and Starz, which contribute their own content to the service. Much like Netflix, the selection can be hit-or-miss at times (don’t expect too mucf high-profile content), but there are still some great gems to come across if you give it a chance.
While Tubi doesn’t produce any original content, it continually updates its selections on a regular basis. Because it is 100% ad-supported, there’s no need to pay any subscription fees; though you may have to put up with a few ads here and there.
According to Tech Radar, the ads are a small price to pay for free streaming. For the most part, they are short and less prevalent than those on other ad-supported media libraries like Sony’s Crackle. If anything, it’s like watching programs son your cable TV, except with less ads.
Tubi can be accessed on a computer via its website, or downloaded as an app to compatible devices (smartphones, tablets, TV boxes and game consoles). Users can start streaming by signing up for a free account. Sure, it’s no complete replacement for Netflix, but it’s sure a good alternative for it, especially if you’re having a hard time finding something to watch.
Here are some titles recommended by Tech Radar:
- The IT Crowd
- Cowboy Bebop
- Battle Royale
- True Grit
- Old Boy
