What devices are compatible with Tubi?

Tubi is available to stream on a number of compatible devices, including Roku and Amazon Fire TV, iOS and Android mobile devices, gaming consoles, as well as Smart TVs, including select Samsung and Sony models. You can also stream directly via the Tubi website via your browser.

Is Tubi worth it?

They say you get what you pay for, and that can particularly true in Tubi’s case. While it doesn’t cost you a cent to sign up or watch, the movies on hand are some of the most ridiculous titles you’ve seen, with the likes of Titanic II and Ants on a Plane enticing you in. However, there are a few golden nuggets in there, and even bad movies can make for a good movie night, so if you’re looking to save your money for more popcorn, Tubi might be the streaming service for you.
