Tubi plans content acquisitions, international expansion after revenue triples in 2018

Thursday 31 January 2019 | 10:57 CET | News
The ad-supported VoD platform Tubi announced record growth in 2018 and aggressive plans to expand in 2019. Over the past year, Tubi customers watched 4.3 times the amount of content on the service over the previous year, and in December alone streamed nearly as much content as all of 2017. The US-based company said it turned profitable in the fourth quarter of 2018 and will reinvest the profits into additional content acquisitions and international expansion in the coming year.
