Tubi

What is Tubi?

Tubi is a popular streaming service that offers a wide variety of on-demand TV shows, movies and live channels to viewers for free. Tubi was launched in April 2014 by Tubi TV Inc. Tubi was founded by Farhad Massoudi, who is the current CEO of the company. In March 2020, Fox Corporation acquired Tubi for $440 million, making it a subsidiary of Fox Corporation.

The service is available on a variety of devices, including smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and game consoles, making it easy for users to access their favorite content no matter where they are.

How much does Tubi cost?

One of the biggest draws of Tubi is the fact that it is completely free to use. Unlike other streaming services that require a monthly subscription fee, Tubi utilizes an AVOD model to generate revenue. In other words, the service is completely ad-supported, meaning that users can watch as much content as they want — no fees necessary.

What does Tubi offer?

Another great thing about Tubi is the sheer amount of content that is available. The service has a wide variety of TV shows and movies from a variety of different genres, including drama, comedy, action, and horror. There are also a number of exclusive titles that are only available on Tubi, giving users even more reasons to check out the service.

How does advertising work on Tubi?

The ad-buying and selling process on Tubi is designed to be easy and efficient for both advertisers and the platform.

First, create an account on Tubi's ad platform. Once your account is set up, you can start creating your campaign. You will have the option to choose the type of ad format you want to use, such as pre-roll, mid-roll, or post-roll ads. You can also choose to use display or native ads.

Next, you will need to set your targeting criteria. Tubi's ad platform allows you to target your ads based on a variety of different factors, including user demographics, viewing history, and location. This ensures that your ads reach the right audience at the right time.
