Tubi, the ad-supported streaming service that is free of charge, has finally launched in the UK over ten years since its formation.

The service, owned by the Fox Corporation since 2020, launched in the US way back in 2014, leaving fans wondering if it would ever land in the UK.

The fears have been allayed, however, with the service now finally being available for UK viewers – and they will have over 20,000 films and television episodes to choose from.

Launch movies include Olympus Has Fallen, Happy Gilmore, Kill Bill Vol 1, Amsterdam, Happy Death Day and Tubi original Slay, while launch TV shows include Fresh Meat and Boss.

"Tubi has spent the last decade honing our approach to vast, free and fun streaming in North America, and we feel that now is the perfect time to bring that recipe to UK audiences," said CEO Anjali Sud.

"We are launching with one of the largest and most diverse content libraries in the UK, designed to indulge viewers in everything from blockbusters to original stories to hidden gems. Most importantly, we're committed to listening to what resonates with UK fans, and bringing them more and more of what they love."

"At a time when traditional programming feels homogenous and when finding what to watch feels like a chore, Tubi has been effective at delivering delight beyond the monoculture with content that appeals to diverse and vibrant fandoms," added David Salmon, EVP and Managing Director of International at Tubi.

"We believe that we can build a brilliantly broad, culturally ambitious offering that puts UK audiences back at the centre, and makes it fun and easy to enjoy great entertainment from around the world."
