tubi tv

The following step-by-step guide will show you How To Install Tubi TV App on Firestick, Fire TV, and Android TV Box.

Tubi TV is a popular free application that’s available on both the Amazon App Store and the Google Play Store.

While this app does contain a decent content library of free Movies and TV Shows, it should be noted that there are a ton of ads within this application.

For these reasons and more, we have included Tubi TV within our Best Firestick Apps list.

The following steps will show you how to install Tubi TV APK on the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4k .

However, these same steps can also be used to install the application on an Android TV Box, NVIDIA SHIELD, or other devices that run the Android operating system.

NOTE: Although Tubi TV is a great free application for Movies and TV Shows, it is very limited with a small amount of popular content. TROYPOINT recommends other APKs that provide more recent releases and other popular media. Check out the link below.

Tubi TV Features & Details

Tubi TV features a ton of classic movies and TV shows across several categories.

Some of the categories include: most popular, family movies, action, horror, comedy, documentaries, not on Netflix, sci-fi, romance, drama, thrillers, sports, reality tv, and more.

The interface is very user friendly, has easy navigation, and a simple design that will assist you in finding your favorite content.

There is also an “Add to Queue” option within the application where you can sort your favorite content and create a watch list.

Regarding a media player, unfortunately this application does not allow you to have an external media player such as MX Player. However the built in player within the app works just fine.

Overall, Tubi TV is a solid free service that provides Movies and TV Shows, but it is very limited when it comes to its media library. And because this is a free service, there are plenty of ads when viewing media within the application.

TROYPOINT TIP: Again because of Tubi TV’s content limitations and ads, there are plenty of other free APKs that we recommend instead. Check out our TROYPOINT Rapid App Installer where you can install the best apps with the click of a button.

Warning! Protect Yourself With A VPN

Most cord-cutters use a VPN and rightfully so.

The free streaming applications, addons, and paid IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.

Without a VPN, your IP Address is being logged.

Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.

Your current IP Address is 69.92.254.185 – When you use a VPN, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.

A VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet.

This will prevent your Internet Service Provider, app/addon developers, government agencies, and any 3rd party from logging what you’re accessing online.

The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is IPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy.

Its important to use a VPN that is fast since we are streaming large HD files.  Its also crucial to find one that keeps no logs of what their subscribers access while online.

Setting up IPVanish VPN on your streaming device is simple!
