What features does Tubi TV offer?

In case you’re looking to manage who watches what and how they watch it, a set of parental controls are available when you create an account.
Right from the moment you start watching, a queue list will appear on the home screen. From there, you’ll want to make sure you have an account in order to save your queue for later. You can also manage your TV watching history from the same place you manage your queue— your account settings.
