The free ad-supported streaming service claims to be the world’s largest AVOD, having surpassed 20 million monthly users earlier this summer.
The Australian service launches on September 1. Customers will have access to a library that will initially have nearly 7,000 movies and TV series. This is compared to the US library which is made up of over 15,000 movies and TV shows.
Customers in Australia will be able to access Tubi via Telstra TV, Tubi.TV, or through nearly any internet-connected screen including Samsung TV’s, 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.
Farhad Massoudi, CEO of Tubi said: “We’re excited to offer Tubi in Australia, as the first of many launch initiatives to advance our global footprint.
“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.”
