Season One of the physical competition series based on the classic playground game is
now available on FOX Entertainment’s AVOD streaming service and joins other FOX flagship series including The Masked Singer, Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back and later this year LEGO Masters
SAN FRANCISCO, August 14, 2020 – Tubi (www.tubi.tv) today announced the high-octane physical competition series Ultimate Tag is now available to stream completely free on FOX Entertainment’s AVOD streaming service. All ten episodes from Season One, based on the classic playground game of chase, are co-hosted by NFL superstar sibling trio J.J., T.J., and Derek Watt. Ultimate Tag marks the fourth series from FOX that has been added to Tubi’s massive library of over 23,000 movies and television shows – following The Masked Singer, Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back and later this year LEGO Masters.
“Sports entertainment enthusiasts are sure to binge Ultimate Tag, with each episode showcasing a level of adrenaline-fueled action that keeps you on the edge of your seat,” said Adam Lewinson, Tubi’s Chief Content Officer. “We’re excited to tap into FOX’s arsenal of premium competition series for Tubi’s viewers to enjoy absolutely free.”
In each episode of Ultimate Tag, everyday citizens compete in the game and must vault, dodge, tumble and dive over various epic, three-dimensional moving courses. Their one simple goal is not to get caught. As competitors progress, they are challenged to take on even more extreme courses and earn points for their performance in each game. Chasing the contestants every step of the way are a variety of resident “professional” Taggers, larger-than-life characters who have a range of jaw-dropping athletic skills. These Taggers are intermittently released into the course, and only the contestants who can outlast them the longest will secure their place in the championship game and a chance at a big cash prize.
With total view time surpassing 200 million hours of content streamed in June alone, Tubi has over 23,000 movies and television shows from over 200 content partners, including nearly every major studio.
