Tubi is a relatively new streaming service that allows you to watch movies and shows from its partner services for free any time. Many people like Tubi because, in spite of the fact that it’s not a paid streaming service, it’s a free and safe way to watch content you like whenever and wherever you want.

Tubi is a completely free streaming app

Yes! Tubi is free to download, free to use, and doesn’t offer any paid upgrades or put certain content behind paywalls. 

There is a catch, of course, but it’s just that there are ads. Tubi takes breaks at 12 to 15 minute intervals for ads, and these ads pay for the content – so it’s kind of like regular TV, but where you get to choose what’s on.

Tubi is safe to use

Tubi is a completely safe, above-board streaming service. It’s not like other sites that post a few – often dubious – links for a limited number of movies and TV episodes. It’s legal, and it won’t show pop-up ads or security warnings, and won’t redirect you anywhere.

Tubi offers a wide range of TV and movies

On the “Browse” tab of its website and apps, Tubi offers programming from a number of partner studios, like MGM, Lionsgate, Paramount, and Full Moon Pictures. Some of their most noteworthy inclusions are movies like “The Pursuit of Happyness,” “Dinner For Schmucks,” “Major League,” “Girl Interrupted,” and “Kung Fu Panda.” There are also TV shows, like “Hell’s Kitchen,” “Daredevil,” “Dance Moms,” “The Masked Singer,” and “Forensic Files.” They even have a separate section of content just for kids.

Tubi is compatible with most devices

Tubi is available to watch on its website and on iOS and Android devices. Additionally, you can also download the app onto a wide range of devices depending on where you live. Check out Tubi’s full lists of compatible devices in the US and outside of the US to see if your streaming device is supported.
