Roku Dec. 14 announced that Fox Entertainment’s ad-supported streaming video service Tubi is now available on the Roku platform in Mexico. The app is available for free from the Roku Channel Store. Users can access thousands of movies and TV shows for free via the app on their Roku device.
“Tubi is an important AVOD channel that is already very popular on the Roku platform in the U.S. and we are excited to bring their extensive entertainment library to users in Mexico,” Yulia Poltorak, director of international content distribution at Roku, said in a statement.
Andrea Clarke-Hall, head of global business development at Tubi, said partnership with Roku in Mexico is instrumental in its mission marketing a free alternative to SVOD.
“We’re excited to expand our footprint with one of the leading streaming brands, in concert with our content partner TV Azteca, with Roku users now able to enjoy an immense library featuring some of the world’s beloved Spanish-language titles,” Clarke-Hall said.
Tubi, which Fox acquired earlier this year for $440 million, offers movies and television shows — all localized in Spanish-language, from Latin America and the U.S., including film Consciencia, starring Rubén Zamora (Atrapada, Vuelve Temprano), Bárbara de Regil (Rosario Tijeras, Tiempos Felices), and Carla Nieto (Sin Origen, Cuéntame). Roku users will also have access to genres and collections, including “Hollywood Favorites,” “Family Entertainment,” and “The Best of TV Azteca” that includes Exatlón Mexico, MasterChef, Lo que La Gente Cuente, Montecristo, Mientras Haya Vida, Bellezas Indomables and Amor en Custodia.
