Tubi TV has a wide selection of movies and TV shows to choose from, making it easy for just about anyone to find something they like. While it might not be a great substitute for cable TV, it might make a great addition to your streaming repertoire. It’s free and has a couple of ads, but if that doesn’t bother you and you’d like to spend the day watching movies without committing to anything, then Tubi TV might be worth the download.
