Last but not least, a geolocated IP in France prevents the proper functioning of the app… Anyway this application is made for Android and we will show you how to install Tubi TV on Windows.

How to use Tubi TV?
When launching the application, you start by defining your preferences among several categories (thriller, drama, series). We see the favorite titles of the moment, a popular content tab and the latest referenced works appear. You can also choose to do a direct search, with the title of the film. It’s also possible to check through the different sections.
You will find many genres: dramas, anime or children’s programs for example and we really appreciated the presence of a Not on Netflix section. This makes it possible to promote atypical or less mainstream productions. If access is free and doesn’t require the creation of an account, it allows you to save your favorites and resume reading on the fly.
Tubi TV’s business model is based on earnings generated by advertising. It’s how the services offered free content to the user. This implies the presence of a multitude of announcements and overlays or commercial breaks during the broadcast of a series or a film. Unlike SvoD services, the videos are only subtitled in English and is available on Android, iOS, Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Chromecast, Playstation Network and Xbox consoles can also access it.
Please note that the main stores currently limit downloads according to the geolocation of the user. These geographical restrictions are obviously problematic, even if the use of a VPN is always possible.
