Tubi Joining Vizio Smartcast

Vizio TV owners have a whole new world of movies and TV shows to explore thanks to a major new addition. Tubi, which has been advertising heavily recently in an effort to position itself as a free alternative to Netflix, announced its library of over 15,000 titles is now available to stream on VIZIO SmartCast. Consumers can use VIZIO’s smart TV experience to search for any title in Tubi’s catalog or launch the Tubi app directly and find titles that might interest them.

“Tubi shares VIZIO’s mission to bring consumers more of the entertainment they love, all in one place,” said Farhad Massoudi, CEO of Tubi. “We’re delighted to be a part of the VIZIO SmartCast ecosystem to make our library easily available to VIZIO customers.”

In May, Tubi announced customers watched over 94 million hours of content and recently the service expanded to Australia. In addition to VIZIO, Tubi is available on Android and iOS mobile devices, Comcast Xfinity X1, Cox Contour, and on OTT devices such as Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox One, Sony, PlayStation 4, Samsung and Amazon Fire TV. Consumers can also watch Tubi content on the web at http://tubi.tv.

Tubi has been expanding its offering over the past two years as it has updated its app to include selections from multiple content sources including cable channel based rows.
