Tubi TV AndroidTV App
We like to test a lot of apps so our SkyStream family knows what are the best apps to use on their SkyStream Three Plus Android TV Boxes. Yesterday we tested Sony’s Crackle app. While we found that UI and app a little laggy, it had pretty good content and was free to watch Movies and TV Shows. CLICK HERE to read our review of Crackle.
Today we are testing one of Crackles direct competitors Tubi TV. Our expectations weren’t super high being that a fortune 500 company like Sony didn’t hit it out of the park 100%. But we were dead wrong!
Tubi TV blew us away with how well their app worked and the amount of content that they have. We did some research and found that they have over 12,000 titles available and are the largest privately-owned video service in the United States. Pretty impressive!
In my personal opinion Tubi TV has better content then Netflix. That is just a personal preference, but you may think so as well and be able to save even more money each month by using your SkyStreamX Three Plus to watch Tubi TV. Oh yeah, did we mention that Tubi TV is completely free to use? You don’t even have to sign up for it. But if you do sign up you will gain being able to add titles to a queue and viewing your browsing history.
So now that we have properly hyped up Tubi TV, lets get into the experience and content.
The TubiTV app is great. It is quick, snappy and well laid out. To be honest I like the Tubi TV app more then Netflix. They took the time to really categorize all of their titles in a very specific way. They even have a section named Not on Netflix 😊 Over all we really like the Tubi TV app itself. It presents the content in an easy to navigate fashion, while really categorizing the content very well.
Now Tubi TV is in the same boat as Crackle in that they are not going to have the latest blockbuster movies and TV shows. Even Sony who creates many of these blockbusters is not going to just give them away for showing the viewer a few ads. They are going to squeeze as much money out of these films as possible. First the Theater, Then DVD, Then rentals, Then Redbox, Then Netflix and lastly Crackle or Tubi TV. So while you are not going to find the latest Marvel or DC movie on either Tubi TV or Crackle. They both have a lot of great content to offer.
As we said earlier Tubi TV has over 12,000 titles, which is a huge library of free content for you and your family! So lets jump into the Movies offered. This is just a short list of some of the movie you can find on Tubi TV. Shutter Island, 10 Cloverfield Lane, No Country for Old Men, Head of State, Scary Movie, Charlotte's Web, Terminator, Lord of War and The Colony.
Tubi TV breaks all of their movies into categories. Here is just a short list of the categories.
- Most Popular
- Family Movies
- Sci Fi
So needless to say, there is something for everyone in the family to watch on Tubi TV. Now let’s move on to TV Shows.
Tubi TV has a growing amount of TV Shows on Demand. Here is a short list of some of the shows that are available. Hoarders, Duck Dynasty, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Cold Case Files, Celebrity House Hunting, The New Detectives, Hells Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, World Poker Tour and Storage Wars.
TubiTV does not have a dedicated TV Show section. Instead they do have a few categories dedicated to Channels that they offer content from like A&E and Lifetime. But they categorize these TV Shows by category and place them within the movie sections. So for instance you may find a comedy show in the comedy section alongside comedy movies.
Some people may like a dedicated TV Show section like Pluto TV has. CLICK HERE to review our review of Pluto TV. While we can see why they might want a dedicated section for easier browsing, we think this method works pretty well. If I am looking to watch something funny, it only makes sense to show me funny Movies and TV Shows.
We could make this article much longer by telling you all about the other content that Tubi TV has like Spanish programming, Stand Up Comedy, Documentaries, Children’s Programming, Home & Garden and Anime.
