Tubi, the ad-supported video on demand service owned by Fox Corp., April 14 began rolling out “Tubi Kids” on Android. Tubi Kids will be available to all Android users in the coming days, expanding its current availability on Roku, Fire TV and Comcast Xfinity.
“Collaborating with one of the most widely used operating brands is key in our mission to democratize content and provide value to our customers,” Michael Ahiakpor, chief product officer at Tubi, said in a statement.
Tubi Kids features a library of children’s content — over 1,200 age-appropriate movies and television shows just for families. A destination for age-appropriate content on the service, Tubi Kids is intended to helps alleviate parents’ worries over what their children are watching and will soon be available on all major streaming devices in the near future.
Tubi Kids movies include Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of TinTin, Norm of the North and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, alongside series “Sonic the Hedgehog,” “Strawberry Shortcake,” “Paddington Bear,” and “The Wiggles,” among others.
With total view time topping 163 million hours watched since December, Tubi claims to be the world’s largest AVOD service with more than 20,000 movies and television shows from nearly every major Hollywood studio.
Tubi is available on Android and iOS mobile devices, Amazon Echo Show, Google Nest Hub Max, Comcast Xfinity X1, Cox Contour, and on OTT devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Vizio TVs, Sony TVs, Samsung TVs, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, and soon on Hisense TVs globally.
