    "Tubi TV was on my google play and it looked interesting so I tried it. It is great, its free and it has high quality movies. I do prefer netflix and hulu so I will keep them as well, but Tubi TV cant compare since its free. There are ads, but they are not excessive. I think they will grow and become more popular, and then more content will be available..great app"

    "I've had this app on my phone for a while now but I haven't really had an opportunity to test it out to its fullest. I keep trying to watch videos with some of my guy friends but I always get distracted. For reasons I won't go into this just isn't the best app to use if you're trying to just chill at home for an evening."

    "Hulu has a lot of first-run films that you can't find anywhere else. I'm always a little surprised by their selection. It doesn't have everything, but this and other streaming media apps compliment each other pretty well."
