Can't download Tubi app

I love watching TUBI!
I load it on my Chromebook, and enjoy. THEN I cast to Chromecast in the TV room, casting from the laptop to TV screen.
This has been a tremendous technological treat for me, living alone, I can choose so many shows depending on my mood.
The ads are FUN! I don't mind watching them and there is a counter in the corner that shows a countdown,
PROBLEM TODAY: After ads, the streaming feature does not continue, the interuption seems to force the app on my chromebook to reboot to the beginning of the show. I then have to reboot TUBI, restart selection, and cast again.
My guess is that the ads containing political content are being counted, since this is an election month, and the system is trying to spend as much money to elect their chosen candidate.
I can't wait to get back to those COOL ads, like for TUBI, and DOOR DASH, and maybe some Christmas Gift ideas that aren't sold on Amazon.
Are you reading this? Hello. Yes, people watch, and listen, and wish for robots that actually perform meaningful work - like laundry and dishes.
I gotta go, have a great life, go out and rake leaves if you get the chance. Bike, hike, and be kind....

Tubi has worked great for the last 12 months on my smart tv. However, for the last 10 days, every time I try to watch a movie trailer it freezes halfway thru the trailer and says to reboot the cable box… to no effect and returns to regular tv channels. Only movie trailers. No problem watching entire movies.

Tubi is VERY UNRELIABLE and it typically freezes 2 to 3 times when watching a single movie. Yes i am logged in. The only reliable fix i have found is to shut down and restart my TV, but this is only partially successful as if you return to tubi it is still frozen, so you watch someting else till it clears up. The program selection is good but the reliability makes it VERY frustrating to use.

When watching a movie the app closes and returns me to my TV home page. The duration it plays is variable but I can expect at least 3 failures in an hour and a half movie.

Just purchased a 2022 LG SmartTV, Tubi was installed and activated, try to navigate the various movie venues I click on a show and then try to move up or down to see other options nothing responds then after several minute the tv shuts off or just sits there with not response for ever until you close out and go to Britbox or Prime etc all works fine just not Tubi Tubi reponds with absurd answer, shut tv off start again, check connection, reinstall app, did those still does not resolve the issue Does Tubi Support do anything NO they just ignore the complaint, this happens on three separate TV's so it is not the device it is TUBI APP not doing it job

Y'know how there is a picture that is above the description of the movie? It never goes away. It's a ghost image behind the movie all the time. It's annoying AF. Just letting you know.

Tubi is freezing on ads, only. The shows work fine, but when the ads start they freeze, for maybe 20 to 30, seconds, then start again but freeze again etc etc etc.

It gets to the point where I just bail out of the Tubi show and watch some other app. None of my other apps gphave this problem. I am watching through an Amazon Fire Stick.

Tubi not working the stupid commercials play then when it goes back to program it just buffers deleted app from all my devices. I understand it is a free app which basically it isn't you are gathering free marketing from us by keeping track of what we are watching but its pretty fucking suspicious that the fucking commercials play just fine and not the programs

No shows are playing on my Samsung SmartTV. It is a Tubi Issue. Plays on my laptop, but not TV, which means Tubi is the problem. Everything was reset, but no Tubi. Other apps work on the TV, but NOT Tubi! I bet your advertisers are going to be ticked! In fact, I am going to contact some of them to let them know your service is down.

I'm watching Dark Shadows on XBox One and get an error. I contacted their CS by phone and got an automated text that was cut off at the word 'message' so that it said 'this is an automated mess.' I tried by e-mail on my computer, and got the automated email, indicated that they confirm receipt, with a ticket number and a message about how they are experiencing a high volume of requests and I may experience a delayed response. I guess that means over 24 hours, because I haven't heard from them since.

The error only occurs on that one title, and the error number is xb-4-100. The error only occurs on the XBox, which I have power cycled, uninstalled the app and reinstalled, all the basic steps, yada yada..

Frankly, that is the only show I'm currently interested in, and I won't use Pluto since I hate the way they run their ads, so I'm a little irritated that the one show I want to see is experiencing an error that doesn't exist online, that is apparently going to be researched by Tubi's "small team" of support staff, which is already backed up like crazy. Luckily I should just be able to watch it on the computer?
