In September 2020, the company reported 33 million monthly users.
In 2019, CEO Farhad Massoudi announced that Tubi would nearly double its 2018 spending on licensed content, close to US$100 million. In February 2019, Tubi signed a distribution deal with NBCUniversal, which includes 400 TV episodes and films.
