Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

One of the best video streaming services that is free and legal!

Tubi is one of the best free and legal video streaming services out there. However, the review is correct with the fact that it has more mature content than kid-friendly content. Sure, there are ad-breaks, but that is not a problem. In various films that are on the service, there is some positivity, like educational value, positive messages and role models. But there are some things to watch out for, too, like violence, sex, language, and drinking, drugs and smoking, which occur in most of the films on the platform, since there are more mature films are included than kid-friendly content. I do think that the age recommendation was too high, though. But it’s always hard to tell with thousands of films available on a platform. I would recommend the Tubi app over the Tubi website, though, since the app is more convenient and easier to find. I love this platform and it is very easy to use because there is no subscription required, since it is completely free. If you are looking for a good more or TV show to watch, try Tubi. You won’t be disappointed.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Children’s shows to adult content

Well this app was programmed with zero common sense. My kids like to watch superwings, but when one episode is over it just stops completely and always goes to “live” tv, and something that looked like “The Shining” was playing in their bedroom when I walked in. This has happened a few times, although now I’m always ready to change the channel. On all other streaming apps, one episode will lead to another, or it will at least go to a live children’s channel when the show has ended. I’m over it, no more tubi. They can watch snippets of superwings on YouTube.
