Tubi TV is the largest collection of free-to-watch US and international TV shows and films available for online and mobile viewing. Currently available on iOS, Roku, Xbox, Amazon Fire TV, and Android coming soon, Tubi TV is a great addition to Netflix with its free ad-supported viewing model. See below mobile app on iOS.
The biggest competitor in the connected TV space is Hulu, which is predominately owned by the traditional TV networks themselves. Tubi TV actively works with over 120 content partners to get movie and TV titles not otherwise available online, as well a diverse set content interests outside of normcore media. Adding content distribution and syndication, Tubi has won major connected TV partners such as Starz, Hasbro, and the UK’s iTV by focusing on building the best consumer experiences.
Mobile phones are now the remote we use to stream mobile TV at home. On iOS more apps can be viewed on the AppleTV through mirroring or Airplay and are more widely accessible than apps that are natively available as channels on AppleTV. Chromecast also adds streaming, but has only recently opened its SDK to developers for inclusion within Android apps and only works on PCs from within the Chrome browser. The hardware behind supporting connected TV platforms such as Apple TV, Chromecast, or Smart TVs are becoming less important as compared to the ability to access great content on demand.
Content is updated each week as online video on demand TV supported by advertising becomes more accessible than paying cable bill premiums or adhering to regularly scheduled television.
