What is Tubi TV?
Tubi TV is free to download and free to use streaming platform. This service features tons of movies and lots of TV series for hundreds of hours of entertainment. Tubi TV is available via the official channels including Amazon Store, Google Play Store, and Apple App Store.
The FireStick app of Tubi TV offers a user-friendly interface with smooth navigation and fast playback. You can add your favorite movie titles and episodes to your queue for quick access.
Tubi TV lets you use the services without any registration and without signing in. However, I recommend using the Tubi TV signed in. This way you will be able to sync your viewing history, queue, and other relevant data across the supported devices.
You will find some TV shows on Tubi TV. However, the larger percentage of its content library comprises movies.

Attention, FireStick Users!
Governments and ISPs constantly monitor your online activity, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick could lead to serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend getting the best FireStick VPN to mask your IP address and securely stream your favorites.
I personally use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN available. Not only is it easy to install on any device, it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, if you're not 100% satisfied, you can always get a refund. ExpressVPN is currently also offering a whopping 3 extra months free on their annual plan!
