New Hisense TVs will include Tubi – the world’s largest free VOD service
Hisense TV owners will now have access to Tubi – the world’s largest free ad-supported video on demand service – after a partnership was sealed today.
The deal was struck between Tubi, which has a library of more than 20,000 movies and TV shows, and Vidaa International – a subsidiary of Hisense which is now the third largest TV manufacturer behind Samsung and LG.
Tubi will be available for viewers in Australia, US and Canada on Hisense’s Vidaa operating system.
Tubi will be preloaded on all 2020 Hisense TVs but the app can be downloaded and used on earlier models.
“We’re excited to expand Tubi’s device footprint to include Hisense televisions with the new Vidaa platform, continuing our mission to make entertainment more accessible to everyone,” said Michael Ahiakpor, Chief Product Officer at Tubi.
“Hisense has been a global leader in consumer electronics and is a perfect partner as we ramp up our international expansion in 2020.”
In September last year Tubi said its customers had streamed 132 million hours of content – a 40 per cent increase from May 2019.
Apart from Hisense TVs, Tubi is also available on Android and iOS mobile devices, Amazon Echo Show, Sony TVs, Samsung TVs, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
Consumers can also watch Tubi content on the web at www.tubi.tv.
