Reviews of the App
“All that glitters is not gold.” This saying means that not everything looks as it seems. Find out in this fun section, where this author cuts through all the high praises and talks about the app as it is.
The amount of video content are 20,000 movies and TV-shows enough? Is it really? That depends on the level of “movie-watching person” you are. This author finds it quite displeasing to search for a movie on a network or website and sees a result display of “Movie not found. Search for something else.”
If you are a big “movie-watching” person, you may see this frequently. Relax, though; for a growing company, 20,000 is pretty good. That said, from the 20,000 lot, be sure to find most of the popular movies you need.
Is it Completely Sleek?
“Could it be possible that with no subscriptions whatsoever, I could watch uninterrupted movies and TV-shows on the Tubi TV app?” Yes, except for the uninterrupted part. Tubi Tv advertises in-between movies and TV-shows. Kind of like a short commercial break in between your stream.
Could it be annoying as you have to watch some advert in between your stream? Well, a little. But for the few seconds it takes for an ad-break, it could be manageable and okay to cope with. These periods can be used to pick up a snack, or used for a bathroom break.
Tubi TV does not support the streaming of live channels as videos are uploaded after they have been released. You cannot stream life sports channels/Live matches as they happen as well.
That is sad news for viewers as they will have to leave the app to find that service (live channels) on subscription services.
It allows device syncing, works on multiple devices, and supports Chromecast as well. With its over 50 million installs on the Google Play store, and over 20 million active users, Tubi TV is becoming the next great movie streaming service.
What Else Do I Need to Know?
Overall, the Tubi TV offers nice features for a service that offers no subscriptions. The movie quality is great; they have a wide range of selections and categories. And yeah, the ad time is manageable.
Quoting directly from Tubi TV… “We believe that sometimes the best things in life ARE free.” And yes, they have done just that by providing us with free quality movies and TV-shows.
It is amazing, and if they can include more video content and features and limit the number of ads, it is all good.
Tubi TV is an app that allows you to stream for free without a subscription on all your devices. This article talked about the Tubi TV app and its features. It also left a spot for reviews of the app, letting you know all about the legal, no subscription streaming service.
