Happy National Streaming Day

Here at Tubi we don’t need another excuse to enjoy our favorite movies and TV shows, but National Streaming Day (aka May 20) might just be our favorite holiday. No offense, National Donut Day and National Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day. Our friends at Roku created it to celebrate shipping their first device in 2008, and we’re excited to join the party. Happy National Streaming Day!

Whether you want to watch the most popular free movies on Tubi or go off the beaten path with our collection of cult favorites, we have thousands of films and shows to binge. You can also find free movies that won’t be on other services you have. Just be sure to blink occasionally, okay? Here are a few recommendations to get you started:
