Fox Entertainment’s AVOD/FAST platform Tubi announced it has added more than a dozen Fox TV shows to its streaming library in Canada. Shows include “The Masked Singer,” “The Masked Dancer,” “Mental Samurai,” “Name That Tune” and “Ultimate Tag,” among others.
The titles join recent Tubi movie additions Tales of a Fifth Grade Robin Hood, Goodfellas, Letters From Iwo Jima and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, among others. A survey conducted earlier this year by Tubi’s Canadian launch partner, Rogers Sports and Media, found the platform is the most popular AVOD service in Canada, behind YouTube, and saw a 107% year-over-year increase in total view time from January 2020 through January 2021.
“Fox’s marquee titles launching in Canada comes at an optimal time when our Canadian audience is growing at a rapid pace,” Adam Lewinson, chief content officer of Tubi, said in a statement. “We’ve seen Fox content resonate with our viewers in the U.S., so we’re thrilled for our audience in Canada to now have these premium series at their fingertips.”
In addition to specials, including “TMZ Presents: Harry & Meghan: The Royals in Crisis,” “TMZ Presents: Tiger King — What Really Went Down?,” “After the Mask” and “Nick Cannon’s Hit Viral Videos: Holidays 2019,” among others.
“Making these titles available, a number of which are produced and owned by Fox Alternative Entertainment, illustrates our strategy of combining Fox with the [streaming] reach of Tubi,” added Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment and specials at Fox Entertainment.
Tubi has more than 35,000 movies and television series from more than 250 content partners, including every major studio. The platform is available on Android and iOS mobile devices, Amazon Echo Show, Google Nest Hub, and on OTT devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Vizio TVs, Sony TVs, Samsung TVs, Hisense TVs, Comcast X1, Cox Contour, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
