Recently the classic Sci-Fi show Babylon 5 left HBO Max, leaving many fans wondering how they will be able to stream the show. Now the creator J. Michael Straczynski has announced that Babylon 5 is headed to free streaming services The Roku Channel and Tubi.
This comes as Warner Bros. Discovery last week announced deals with The Roku Channel and Tubi to bring their content to the free streaming service. This deal will bring a huge catalog of content to both services.
“As FAST continues to explode in popularity amongst cord-cutters, we’re seeing content players increasingly shift their focus towards capturing this audience, by bringing some of their best stuff to FAST. The rapid expansion of premium content on FAST is a win for both the viewer and content owner, as well as advertisers looking to reach these audiences through well-known programming. We’re delighted to be one of Warner Bros. Discovery’s inaugural FAST partners, and we look forward to introducing its incredible TV series, films, and entertainment brands to a whole new audience on The Roku Channel.” Said Rob Holmes, vice president of programming at Roku.
“Warner Bros. Discovery has a catalogue that TV lovers can’t get enough of and Tubi is proudly making many of these recent hits from Warner Bros. Discovery available to new audiences this month,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi. “From critically acclaimed and groundbreaking to lighthearted and addicting, our new WB branded FAST channels and on-demand offering will speak to each of Tubi’s distinct audience communities.”
No dates have been announced for when Babylon 5 and other Warner Bros. Discovery shows have been announced. For now we will have to wait and see when they show up on The Roku Channel and Tubi later this year.
