Tubi teams with DAZN for sports as free TV service continues its takeover

Not that Tubi was exactly lacking for anything to watch, but the free (as in ad-supported) streaming service just added a couple more reasons to keep you glued to your couch. The Fox-owned FAST service (that’s short for free ad-supported television) today announced a partnership with DAZN that brings a bevy of sports to platform.

The tentpole addition is DAZN Women’s Football. It’ll be available 24 hours a day, with “a compelling mix of live and classic soccer matches from prestigious tournaments.” Those will include the UEFA Women’s Champions League, Liga F, and the Saudi Women’s Premier League, among others. It’ll be available in the U.S. and Canada.

DAZN Ringside is coming to the U.S. only and features “the very best action across boxing and MMA from our partners Matchroom Boxing, Golden Boy, Wasserman, and MF & DAZN: X Series.” The channel will include live undercards, with action before the bell, including weigh-ins. It also will have 300 hours of archived fights, exclusive documentaries, and The DAZN Boxing Show. World title fights also will be available after a waiting period.

And DAZN TV is headed to Tubi audiences in Canada, with a multitude of boxing, MMA, and international soccer.

If you already have Tubi — which got a new look earlier this year — installed on whatever device you like to stream from, you’re good to go. And that means pretty much any modern device that has an internet connection, be it Roku or Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV or Google TV, various smart TV platforms, phones, or even in a web browser. Tubi is free — you just have to give it a few minutes of your attention for advertising.

Tubi — the ad-supported streaming service owned by Fox — today announced a multi-year partnership that brings professional basketball to the platform. A smattering of live G League games brings the NBA's minor league to the free service, starting with the NBA G League Ignite (that's a developmental team) taking on the Ontario (Calif.) Clippers at 10 p.m. ET November 10.

It's all part of a new FAST channel (that's short for free, ad-supported television) dubbed NBA G League TV. It'll sport more than 75 games each season, including more than a dozen Ignite games and select playoff games. And each Friday and Saturday Tubi will feature a doubleheader with four exclusive live games, along with behind-the-scenes content, original series, studio programming, classic games, and highlights.

Tubi — the ad-supported on-demand streaming service owned by Fox that's part of the FAST explosion — has more than 200,000 movies and TV shows at the ready for its 74 million monthly active users. The trick is figuring out what to watch. Or, rather, Tubi wants to figure out what you want to watch. And to that end, today it announced that it’s using a new search scheme to help you make your way through the platform.

Rabbit AI, as it’s being called, uses ChatGPT-4 (that’s a step above the free one you’ve probably been using) to go beyond what Tubi says its previous keyword searches could suss out. First is that the whole thing is much more conversational, like if you were talking to a buddy.
