Tubi Launches ‘Bitefest’ In August To Take Its Own Taste Of Shark-Themed Programming

Derek Walborn

Summer is finally here and that means sun, beach days, and the yearly pivot to shark attack-themed movies and content.

While Discovery has been chumming the waters for over three decades now with their annual Shark Week programming, Tubi, Fox’s free streaming service, has joined the frenzy in 2021 by dedicating not seven days but the entire month of August to the genre of sharks-eating-people in the form of “Bitefest”.

Bitefest will feature a tremendous showing of 70 shark-themed films including the entire “Jaws” franchise.

In addition to contemporary classics like “The Reef” and “Sharktopus,” Tubi’s less-than-educational take on shark content will also include their own original addition to the lineup, “Swim.”

“Swim” stars Joey Lawrence (“Melissa & Joey”) in the story of a family whose vacation home is inundated with floodwaters and, you guessed it, a vicious shark. The family has to fight for survival as the steadily increasing water forces them to climb to higher floors to escape danger. “Swim” is from the producers of “Sharknado,” which is conspicuously absent from Tubi’s campy shark-themed lineup.

Tubi

Tubi is a free video streaming service that includes on-demand access to 30,000 movies and television shows. Fox executives have called their service “TV on steroids.”

Tubi’s programming includes films and television series from Fox Entertainment, MGM, Paramount Pictures, Lionsgate, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros., NBCUniversal, Disney, and more.

For those looking for a more academic approach to shark entertainment in the lead up to Bitefest, National Geographic will be airing Sharkfest, beginning on Monday, July 5 on its linear channel and Disney+, while Discovery’s perennial Shark Week programming will be running from July 11 through July 18 with exclusive content on both Discovery and discovery+.
