Tubi positions itself as a Netflix alternative and has more than 15,000 films and TV shows available on its service, and over 200 content partners, including Warner Bros, NBCUniversal, MGM and Lionsgate. The company says it surpassed 20 million monthly active users at the end of June 2019, with customers watching more than 94 million hours of content on the ad-supported service. In addition, it says it had its single biggest month of revenue in that month.

Earlier in 2019, Tubi said it would invest more than nine figures on content acquisitions to expand its library. Consumers can now use Vizio’s smart TV experience to search for any title in Tubi’s catalogue or launch the Tubi app directly and find titles that might interest them. In addition to the over 44,000 hours of content Tubi offers, Vizio SmartCast users can also enjoy Tubi’s new October titles, including Halloween favourites Scary Movie and Scary Movie 2, as well as Monster starring Charlize Theron.

“Tubi shares Vizio’s mission to bring consumers more of the entertainment they love, all in one place,” said Farhad Massoudi, CEO of Tubi. “We’re delighted to be a part of the Vizio SmartCast ecosystem to make our library easily available to Vizio customers.”

In addition to Vizio, Tubi is available in the US, Canada and Australia on Android and iOS mobile devices, Comcast Xfinity X1, Cox Contour, and on OTT devices such as Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox One, Sony, PlayStation 4, Samsung and Amazon Fire TV.
