The completely free, ad-supported content is reported to display approximately 4 minutes of advertisements per 1 hour of content to viewers.
Farhad Massoudi, CEO of Tubi, told StereoNET:
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.
Tubi can be accessed via Telstra TV, Tubi.TV, or through most internet-connected screens 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.
