How is Tubi Better Than Netflix?

Their selection of movies and shows is vastly superior. I could sit on my ass watching this stuff all day and night and not run out of good content.

"Tubi" by Stream Freely? I always thought it was "Yellow River" by I.P. Freely...

Lol, but srsly folks - Tubi is THE SHIT! I tell all my friends they are wasting money on other streaming services; I geel like you, OP - I'll never be able to watch it all. I'm a big ol' film buff here, and while no, Tubi does not have the extensive TCM-type classic Hollywood library that HBO does, it is great for foreign/cult/genre deep cuts! Not so shabby on classic TV, either! Beverly Hillbillies, Bewitched, Flintstones, etc... I also love how it warns you when ads are coming up, gives you a countdown of how long until they're over, and you can mute the ads - unlike on YouTube!

I hope the ever-expanding, big, expensive streamers learn something from this.

Consolidation, variety, some familiar mixed with some new content, and ease of finding what you want to watch are the tickets to success. Becoming more expansive (way too many standalone services!), exclusionary (you can only watch this here and nowhere else, ever!), and expensive are not.

Pluto's interface sucks and the commercials are more invasive than Tubi. Too bad, because Pluto has some good stuff buried in it. It is hard to tell what Roku Channel is trying to do - provide content or sell streaming services. Again, some good stuff there too if you can get past the interface. Tubi wins across the free platforms with content, interface, and tolerable commercial breaks in logical places in the shows - way less than a broadcast channel.

The sheer volume and variety of the selections in the Horror category alone is mind blowing. Watched a fantastic psychological thriller starring Martin Sheen called When The Bough Breaks, Burnt starring Bradley Cooper. Predictable but entertaining. And Philadelphia. Hadn’t seen it in years. It’s a flawed film but worth watching for Denzel’s performance. Hanks did his best but Andy was just too saintly to be true. Not a smidge of bitchery. Or genuine anger. A Disney version of gay.

I stumbled upon Tubi during the early lockdown days of the pandemic and never looked back.

Its commercial saturation is tiny fraction of over-the-air TV and most other advertising-based cable or streaming services.

It may not have 1080p HD, but that’s really a minor issue for me, as its wide selection of contemporary and classic movies is unbeatable.

I also have Netflix, the big plus of which is that it produces a huge quantity of its own films and series, and thusly, the reason most people watch it. However, most Netflix films are not cinematic in quality, just high-budgeted made-for-TV movies.

Because Tubi has such a deep well of movies to choose from, I watch it more than Max and Netflix combined.

I’m surprised no one made Parring Glances into a musical, I think it would be wonderfully heartbreaking.

It was made into a musical that I saw in my best friend’s basement apartment on the Upper East Side on September 27, 1992!

The folks who program this streaming service clearly want to fuck with our heads. But in a good way. Checked out some tasty entrees to watch later and went out to do some chores. Checked out the site just now and they are showcasing NEW offerings in each category. This keeps the site fresh and keeps me hitting it like a crack pipe. This my friends is a stoners paradise. I’m in love.

I prefer Tubi and YouTube over Netflix myself. I have no interest in watching the serial type shows on Netflix which is pretty much the bulk of what is there. Their movie selection sucks.

It would be funny if some of the TUBI supporters of Murdoch are making fun of the other supporters of Murdoch when they post an article from his paper.

In the 'Critic's Choice' movie thread a few days ago, someone mentioned Lucy and Bob Hope in "The Facts of Life" (1960) I watched it last night, it was dreadful but fun to watch for the clothes, cars, and Lucy smoking her lungs out.

I so want to cancel Netflix, but then something I want to watch pops up. But even that is more infrequent. I watched the new season of Heartstopper, and also Painkiller, but haven’t seen much else I want to watch at the moment.

If it wasn’t for their outstanding docu-content, I would’ve cancelled Netflix ages ago.

I'm so glad I made it all the way through Family before Tubi dropped it. The quality really fell off in the final season. Michael J. Fox falling head over heels for Kate?? Puh-leeze.

I’m thinking about cancelling Netflix. I rarely watch anything they offer. On the other hand I watch Tubie every day. So many great movies and it’s FREE. Hulu is cheaper. Paramount has all the CBS shows I love to watch on repeat like The Good Wife and The Good Fight. Apple bundle because it offers music, tv, sports, original programming and a video arcade which keeps visiting nephews and nieces entertained.

Tubi has great WW II stuff but I find that a lot of it is available on YouTube.

Netflix really sucks lately. I would cancel but there are a few things coming I’d like to watch.

I got Starz to watch Minx but just cancelled it since that’s over and I didn’t see anything else I want to watch. Prime and Apple have enough other benefits to keep, but wow, their originals are about 60% bad. (That Prime thing with Sigourney—ooof)

I keep Peacock and Paramount because they are pretty cheap and get some good movies. I watch Hulu a lot, mainly for the FX stuff. I now have Max free from AT&T, and I’m glad because it’s really not as good as HBO Max was.

Speaking of Tubi though, last weekend I watched The Go-Between from 1971. Great movie! I had never seen it. The repetitive commercials were kind of annoying but not overwhelmingly so.

The fascination with shit tv shows and shit tv movies from the 70s and 80s is one of the more bizarre quirks on DL. There are so many things I would rather be doing than watching shit like that.

I'm watching, "The House That Jack Built" by Lars Von Trier, starting Matt Dillion as a serial killer, and while it's a bit slow, it's interesting. The ending is very abrupt.

I watched "Behind the Camera: The Charlie's Angels Story" last night. Great campy fun and the unknowns who played Kate and Jaclyn nailed it. Farrah and Lee Majors, not so much.

Pluto - Black Throwbacks like Sanford & Son, 227, The Jeffersons. The I Love Lucy channel. The Dynasty channel, Designing Women, Maude.

Only a few weeks ago, I watched Paul Morrissey's Blood for Dracula at my brother's suggestion, and the print was impeccable. Joe Dallesandro was a wonder to watch. I just looked, and it's no longer available there, but it makes me ponder how they choose their movies.

I like Pluto most of the time but once you realize that Gillette is advertised every 5 mins, it gets to be too much.

I'd really like to know who the fuck Gillette hired that thinks ads about shaving your pubes and balls are needed. There's also the shining example of millenial writing with the one ad I cannot stand. A father calls his son while the son is shaving and the line is, "It's not my dad's razor, Dad."

Stellar advertising. Also the dancing pubic hairs were just annoying as fuck.

I watch Tubi now and then. I have Netflix, Hulu, HBO/Max, and Prime. Through Prime I subscribe to PBS. I've sometimes watched Pluto but the quality isn't very good. Right now I'm wandering around Hulu discovering new things. I tried Apple and Paramount but they're problematic so I dropped them. One thing I discovered. I'm a Comcast customer. (Xfinity.) I decided to try Showtime on a promotional a few months ago, then had a terrible time trying to drop it. Xfinity forces you to call them and jump thru hoops to unsubscribe. So now, when I want to subscribe I either go to the network's website or I do it through Prime. The most value I get is from PBS. They have some great programming.

There was a particular movie that I wanted to watch but it was only available on Pluto so I downloaded the app and I am hooked. Great picture quality and variety of movies, classic tv, and some intriguing selections that I look forward to watching for the first time. FREE TV ROCKS.

R183, I've had a problem with picture quality on Pluto, and I've also noticed that some of the movies a re heavily edited, including missing significant scenes.

I watched Sea of Love on an iPad and the picture quality was superb, r184. So was the sound but that’s due to using a harmon/kardon blue tooth speaker. There were no missing or edited scenes. I can only speak from my own experience and so far it’s been great. 👍👍
