Tubi Becomes Exclusive Streaming Home to Lionsgate’s Record-Setting Sitcom Anger Management
Tubi TV, the world’s largest ad-supported video on demand service (VOD) with over 12,000 movies and television shows from nearly every major Hollywood studio, has struck an exclusive deal with Lionsgate to bring all 100 episodes of the comedy Anger Management to its customers for free. The show, which stars Charlie Sheen, Selma Blair, Shawnee Smith and Daniela Bobadilla, had a record-setting debut in 2012 on FX, which, at the time, was the most-watched scripted cable comedy series debut.
According to the press release from Tubi, customers can easily access all seasons of Anger Management completely free starting today, with availability on over 20 platforms, such as Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Comcast Xfinity and Cox Contour.
Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer at Tubi, had this to say following the announcement of the exclusive streaming partnership with Lionsgate:
“We’re excited to be adding Anger Management to our comedy offering with 100 episodes absolutely free to Tubi customers. This is just one of many popular series we’re adding to our rapidly growing library of premium content.”
Anger Management features award-winning actor Charlie Sheen as “Charlie,” who plays a non-traditional therapist specializing in anger management. With a private practice of his own, Charlie, who struggles with his own anger issues, seems to thrive on the chaos in his own life, dealing with complicated relationships with his own therapist/best friend (Selma Blair), an ex-wife whose positive outlook but poor choices in men frustrates Jennifer (Shawnee Smith), and their 13-year-old daughter who has OCD (Daniela Bobadilla).
With the addition of Lionsgate’s Anger Management, Tubi continues to expand its already massive content library, with an expectation to grow at an even greater accelerated pace throughout this year. With more than double the content volume of Netflix — with approximately 40,000 hours of content — Tubi consistently ranks as one of the most watched apps on the world’s largest platforms including Amazon’s Fire TV, Roku iOS, Android, and many others.
