“Tubi has now led the U.S. market as the #1 AVOD player for 6 months, and we believe our unique product and content strategy is ready for the global stage,” said Sud. “As other services raise subscription fees for consumers, we believe that audiences around the world will look for more choice, more personalization and less friction in how they are entertained. David brings an incredibly rare combination of entrepreneurial, technical and streaming expertise in global markets, and I’m thrilled to expand our footprint with his leadership.”
“Tubi has an industry-leading position in the U.S. and we’re looking to replicate that success across international markets,” said Salmon.
“We already have a fast-growing footprint in Canada, Australia and Central America, and I’m excited to join Anjali and the team during this time of growth to advance those efforts while expanding into new markets like the U.K and further into Latin America.”
