Tubi Picks for October

Every few months, the film and television show selections that streaming services offer change. The shows you have been watching on Tubi may suddenly disappear and are now available on Pluto or Peacock, or they have been replaced with five other shows and 15 new titles that you cannot possibly watch in two months' time. 

It can be overwhelming browsing through all of the major apps to see what's new in "free streaming", so every month we will round up a selection to share... that way you can see what's new and recommended in one convenient list. 

To launch this series, we are sharing some of Tubi's offerings for the month of October. If you do not have a Roku or other streaming device, simply click on the links to watch them online on Tubi's website.

Television Shows

Along with the classic favorites (The Dick Van Dyke Show, Bewitched, Ozzie and Harriet, I Dream of Jeannie, etc), Tubi also has some rare shows added to their roster. These include....

  1. Thank you for this valuable listing! What a great idea. You're so right about movies appearing and disappearing -- I tried to watch Night of the Hunter on YouTube the other day (which I'd seen there about a month ago), only to find that it's gone from YT but it's on Pluto!

    1. "Night of the Hunter" airing on TCM this Tuesday the 10th.

    2. I'm glad you found the list of some use, Karen. Roku has a lot of good offerings this month too, so I'll probably post one for that channel in a week or so as well. And Top-Cat....thanks for the heads up!
