Some great (and some not-great) old shows now coming to Tubi.


From Variety.com ...


Free Streaming Service Tubi Inks Deal With NBCUniversal
for 400 Movies, TV Show Episodes
-------------------------------------------------------
Ad-supported streaming service Tubi (https://tubitv.com/)
has struck a deal with NBCUniversal to add close to
400 movies and TV show episodes to its service. Some of
the titles coming to Tubi's service due to the agreement
include "Xena: Warrior Princess," "Hercules: The Legendary
Journeys," "The A-Team," "Punky Brewster," "The Incredible
Hulk," and "Quantum Leap."

Tubi will also be adding the original versions of "Magnum,
P.I.," "Battlestar Galactica," "Bionic Woman," and "She-Ra:
Princess of Power." All of the content will be added to
Tubi's library in 2-3 weeks.

"We're excited to be a home to this robust library of
world-class, iconic content from NBCUniversal that appeals
across generations," said Tubi's chief content officer Adam
Lewinson in a statement. "We are aggressively working to
expand our library, and this is one of many deals to come
for Tubi."

Tubi, which bills itself as a free Netflix alternative, now
has over 12,000 movies and TV show episodes, or 40,000 hours
of content, available on an ad-supported basis.

The San Francisco-based company isn't disclosing its number
of users, but Tubi CEO Farhad Massoudi recently told Variety
that the company's 2018 total viewing time increased by
4.3 times over 2017. Massoudi also said that Tubi planned to
invest more than $100 million in content licensing this year.
