A new video-on-demand service has launched – and the best part is, it’s free

Posted in Entertainment and Technology.

It’s official. Tubi, the world’s largest ad-supported video-on-demand service has just launched its free, premium service in Australia.

Just when you thought you couldn’t handle another platform to stream your favourite shows, another one is here to stay – and this one is free – but there’s one catch: ads!

What does Tubi offer?

Based in San Francisco, Tubi has over 15,000 movies and television shows on offer, from nearly every major Hollywood studio, which means more than 44,000 hours of exciting content. The best part is that is can be watched for free. And now keen film and television audiences in Australia have access to the service too.

“We’re excited to offer Tubi in Australia, as the first of many launch initiatives to advance our global footprint,” said Farhad Massoudi, CEO of Tubi.

“Our library size in Australia will expand rapidly in the coming months and eventually grow to our current library size in the US of 15,000 titles – and beyond. We look forward to further activating new audiences who will discover the growing value of free video on demand.”

How can I watch Tubi?

At the moment Tubi is available in the USA and Canada on over 25 devices. Tubi has announced that in Australia it will be available via Telstra TV, Tubi.TV, or through nearly any internet-connected screen including Samsung TVs, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast and Apple iOS, as well as Android tablets and smartphones. The service will also be available via game consoles, including PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Quiet on set … and action!

Tubi launched in Australia on 1 September and initially, we will have access to the largest free library in the country, offering nearly 7,000 movies and television series, and this is just the beginning. The collection will rapidly expand as time goes by.

Titles immediately available on the service will include 3:10 to Yuma, The Blair Witch Project, Kickboxer and Stranger Than Fiction, with additional titles to be made available over the next six months, including Dirty Dancing, The Grudge, Requiem for a Dream, Reservoir Dogs, Saw, Traffic and Young Guns.

With a service such as Tubi that is free and easy to use, screen time this spring has got just that little bit more exciting.
