Tubi, a free ad-supported streaming service with a library of more than 15,000 titles, is launching on Vizio SmartCast smart TVs.

Vizio owners can use the SmartCast platform to search for any title in Tubi’s catalog or launch the Tubi app directly.

“Tubi shares Vizio’s mission to bring consumers more of the entertainment they love, all in one place,” said Tubi CEO Farhad Massoudi in a statement. “We’re delighted to be a part of the Vizio SmartCast ecosystem to make our library easily available to Vizio customers.”

In addition to Vizio, Tubi is available on Android and iOS mobile devices, Comcast Xfinity X1, Cox Contour, and on streaming players from Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Samsung and Amazon Fire TV.

In June, Tubi said that it had more than 20 million monthly active users after record growth throughout the first half of 2019. The company also said that customers watched more 94 million hours of content during May, and that the company had the biggest month of revenue in its history.
