Best of all it's 100% free to use and the commercials unlike some other free apps are pretty minimal. Choose from over 40 great genres like Action,  Classics, Drama, Reality TV Shows, Comedy Relief, Horror and more. 

One thing we really like about the Tubi TV app is you can start watching an iOS movie, queue the video and then finish it up later on a Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV or Xbox and picking-up right where you left off.

2. Pluto TV

Watching Pluto TV is a lot like watching cable TV or satellite. It even comes with a very nice built in guide. On this iOS movie and Live TV app there are a ton of great individual channels which now also include 15 free Viacom Channels which now makes Pluto TV even more awesome.
