Tubi Buzzes Netflix HQ With 'Free Love' Banner

Ad-supported Tubi buzzed Netflix’s Hollywood offices Monday with a small plane towing a message about how streamers may be straying from the most popular subscription services.

The banner said “Dear Netflix, I was with Tubi last night, but I only watched.” The tagline has the Tubi logo and the words “Free Movies & TV.”

The flyover was part of a new campaign for Tubi that takes on Netflix and Hulu with vaguely suggestive outdoor ads.

The other ads are running in big cities including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago
