Hulu is one of the best, all-in-one options for cord cutters, given its diverse set of streaming options. In addition to a strong library of classic shows, and a good selection of movies, Hulu offers a robust live TV option (more than 70 channels of news, sports, and entertainment programming). Still, Hulu trails some top competitors, given its lackluster original content and limited selection of 4K content. After adding 14 Viacom channels to its lineup, including BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network, Hulu recently announced that NFL Network and NFL RedZone will be available on the platform before the next NFL season begins. It is unclear, however, these NFL-centric channels will increase the subscription cost.
Tubi is a free video streaming service with a claimed collection of 20,000 movies and TV shows, (though we aren't sure if it counts episodes individually as part of that number). Regardless, its catalog includes popular films such as A.I. Artificial Intelligence; Black Hawk Down; Donnie Darko; Legally Blonde; Memento; Minority Report; Planes, Trains, and Automobiles; Rain Man; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; and We Need to Talk About Kevin. Its TV library is less impressive, but some notable entries include 3rd Rock From the Sun (season 1-5), Degrassi: The Next Generation (seasons 1-14); Hell's Kitchen (seasons 1-14), Jojo's Bizarre Adventures (seasons 1-4), Naruto (seasons 1-4), and V (seasons 1-2). Note that Tubi's library regularly changes. Tubi may soon produce its own original shows and movies.
Tubi is for people who want a free service that doesn't feel cheap. Tubi's web interface and mobile apps have clean designs, and organize everything neatly into descriptive categories. One limitation with Tubi is that the streaming resolution is capped at 720p. That wouldn't be a major problem, except for the fact that many movies are only available in 540p. As expected, Tubi does not support offline downloads for mobile devices either. However, the service keeps track of the content you've watched, and lets you manage a watchlist. The parental control tools are a bit limited, but at least they're an option. 2b1af7f3a8
