Originals

Tubi will roll out a slate of original programs later in 2021. The service will add 140 hours of original animation, documentaries, and shows across multiple genres.

TV Shows

Tubi offers a few standout shows like “Alias,” “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” “The Andy Griffith Show,” “The Carol Burnett Show,”

But most of their TV offerings are geared toward light entertainment: “Duck Dynasty,” “Storage Wars,” “Kitchen Nightmares,” or “The Masked Singer.” There are also some kitschy old series like “ALF,” “Fantasy Island,” “The Beverly Hillbillies,” and “The Flying Nun.”

Movies

Tubi has some high-quality movies, though most are low-quality schlock. At the time of this writing, standouts include “American History X,” “Cast Away,” “RoboCop,” “Three Kings,” “The Perfect Storm,” “The Long Kiss Goodnight,” and a handful of James Bond movies.

The service offers many well-curated categories like anime, action, faith, comedy, LGBTQ, romance, and sci-fi & fantasy. There are also more thoughtful categories like cult classics, highly rated on Rotten Tomatoes, and “not on Netflix.”

Hidden gems include some long video clips with white noise, so you can listen and watch rain, fireplaces, or fireflies. There are also exercise videos, travel shows, and stand-up comedy performances.

Commercial breaks appear roughly every 25 minutes in a film.

Kids

A special Tubi Kids section helpfully segments children’s programming away from the more mature content. You’ll see family movies like “Free Willy,” “Osmosis Jones,” “All Dogs Go to Heaven,” and “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure.”

When it comes to TV, Tubi offers “Barney & Friends,” “G.I. Joe,” “Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitsu,” “The Flintstones,” and “Scooby-Doo Where are You?”

For the youngest viewers, there’s BabyFirst TV and a selection of educational content.
