At the end of 2019, Tubi had 25 million active users with 163 million hours watched—a 160% jump over 2018.
“Our growth over the last year is a clear testament to the success of our focused strategy in a now-cluttered marketplace,” said Farhad Massoudi, CEO of Tubi. “We’re excited people globally have embraced Tubi as a complement to subscription video and aim to deliver an even larger library of premium content in 2020.”
Tubi is also seeing strong growth outside of the United States. According to their release today traffic in Canada and Australia was up 357% in 2019. Tubi plans to continue to expand by launching in Mexico in 2020.
Tubi has recently been riding the growth of free ad-supported streaming services. Many had wondered if they could withstand the growing number of competitors like The Roku Channel and IMDb TV. So far it looks like the growth of competition has not hurt them.
Tubi is available on Android and iOS mobile devices, Amazon Echo Show, Google Nest Hub Max, Comcast Xfinity X1, Cox Contour, and on OTT devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Vizio TVs, Sony TVs, Samsung TVs, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, and soon on Hisense TVs globally. Consumers can also watch Tubi content on the web at www.tubi.tv.
