The announcement of Tubi’s originals strategy comes shortly after the one-year anniversary of FOX acquiring the leading AVOD platform. With a vast, data-driven library of more than 30,000 titles and live news content, Tubi registered a record-setting Total View Time (TVT) of 798 million hours during the first quarter this year, up +54% year-over-year, and a platform-best 276 million hours of TVT in March.  In 2020 alone, more than 2.5 billion hours of content were streamed on Tubi.

“Our data-driven original programming approach represents an important and strategic step in moving forward Tubi’s successful track record of disrupting the norm, and its longstanding mission to give our audience more of what they want,” said Farhad Massoudi, CEO of Tubi. “Our strategy super-serves audiences with smart and sensible content by tapping into what they are consuming, and the genres that are most popular on Tubi.”

It also is developing new ways for advertisers to connect with their desirable audiences in more meaningful ways with on-device-sponsored integrations.

Tubi officially joined FOX in April 2020 and, as it continues to scale quickly and display sustained growth, its originals slate is being developed and produced with a viewer-first approach around their pockets of passion. Tubi’s proprietary Content Intelligence is a cornerstone in its development of originals, feeding the needs of viewers by applying personalization with viewer consumption data. Constantly mining this active data and doubling down to give viewers more of what they want, advertising within Tubi’s original content will be hyper-relevant to viewers and seamlessly integrated. Tubi Original Documentaries will reflect audiences’ passions, including True Crime, the Royals, Paranormal and the compelling sinking of the Titanic. Tubi Originals will also be incorporated into seasonal and owned tentpole programming moments, such as its upcoming Hot Christmas and shark event programming later this year.

A strong combination built on two companies 100% dedicated to advertisers, FOX’s broad hits and Tubi’s mission to reach deep into viewers’ passions together create a natural integration from linear to streaming, with content not behind a paywall. FOX’s longstanding history of creating culture-piercing programming, working with top creatives in the industry, and offering advertisers a more personalized approach, gives Tubi the creative benefits to build its original programming strategy. Tubi’s expansive library, strong technology base, rooted in its Content Intelligence, as well as its young and diverse audience, allows FOX to reach an audience not available to linear.
