Tubi Finds New Canadian Partner
Fox’s Tubi, a free ad-supported streaming option, is being integrated with Shaw Communications Inc. The Western Canada based cable provider will integrate Tubi into its set-top boxes providing the streaming option with no additional charges. The integration will add new on-demand titles as well as live TV options.
Shaw TV customers now have instant access to live and on-demand content, which includes Tubi’s comprehensive library of award-winning movies and hit television shows, alongside Tubi Originals, including CORRECTIVE MEASURES, starring Bruce Willis and Michael Rooker; TITANIC 666, starring AnnaLynne McCord and Keesha Sharpe; and recently launched documentary SINS OF THE FATHER: THE GREEN RIVER KILLER. New titles available in July include “Gravity,” “American Sniper,” “The Notebook,” “Ocean’s Thirteen” and “The Town.”
“We’re excited to expand our footprint in Canada with one of Western Canada’s leading content and connectivity providers,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer at Tubi. “Our collaboration with Shaw and its Shaw TV offering highlights Tubi’s continued dedication to bring free, premium content to a broad cross-section of consumers.”
Additional newly added titles available on Tubi in Canada this month include “The Aviator” “Mystic River,” “Rush Hour, “Boogie Nights,” “Into the Wild,” “U.S. Marshals,” “10 Cloverfield Lane,” “Megamind,” “A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010),” “Vacation (2015),” “Flags of Our Fathers,” and “Wild Wild West.”
As a result of this partnership, Shaw TV customers are now able to find any title provided through Tubi using their voice-powered remote, making it easier for them to search and discover content. This integration interface means that every available movie or episode of a show can easily be found in one place, regardless of whether it’s available through Tubi, Shaw On Demand, airing live, or recorded on the PVR.
