More Details

Tubi TV uses HLS streams that change the bit rate of the movie every ten seconds, depending on the bandwidth detected. The streaming bit rate automatically switches to a different bit-rate depending on whether the connection has improved or depreciated since the last ten second clips bit-rate was detected. The slower the connection speed, the lower the bit-rate. 

You can also change the streaming bit-rate manually on the Tubi TV app on Android and Web platforms.

How to change the bit-rate on Android?

  1. Open the Tubi TV app.
  2. Play a video. 
  3. Tap on the screen while the video is playing and tap on "HD" on the bottom right corner. 
  4. Tap on the lowest bit rate option (bottom option).
