Tubi streaming rises in Australia
Ad-supported streaming platform notes a 242% growth in viewing time in Australia.
Hands up if you use Tubi, the ad-supported streaming service which doesn’t carry a monthly subscription fee?
The platform launched in Australia a year ago with nearly 7,000 movies and TV series.
The San Francisco-based company, which FOX acquired earlier this year for $440 million, has announced a record number of Monthly Active Users (MAU) and Total View Time (TVT) in 2020.
In August, Tubi’s MAU1 reached 33 million global users, an increase of 65% year-on-year.
TVT surpassed 200 million hours streamed in April – and has been above 200 million hours each month since – with an average increase of 104% year-over-year.
Internationally, Tubi reports “record increases in all countries it operates. Year-over-year TVT rose by 95% in Canada, and 242% in Australia, which is presumably coming off a low base given it launched in Australia in September 2019.
