Hell, the back six episodes didn't even air on HBO. They're being shown here for the first time.

Which is why this dumbass "live only, and only during working hours" plan is so infuriating. It's as if they're intentionally trying to get as little value as possible out of their streaming license. The other possibility is HBO hates this show (or Whedon) so much they imposed these conditions on Tubi.

I don’t have a complete list, but apparently WB has released some previously unreleased shows on Tubi.

Including:

Scarecrow and Mrs King
Spenser for Hire
A man called Hawk, spin-off of Spenser for Hire
Third Watch
Eight is Enough

Has Get Smart(original 1960s series) ever been on a streaming service?

I.e. shows that haven't streamed, before, or lost episodes for these shows?

I suspect the former, but given The Nevers, thought I would ask.

Re: Tubi -- ad supported streaming service

I remember when Spenser for Hire aired on ABC in the mid 80s at around 10pm. I was in 6th grade and was forced to be in bed by 10pm for school, so I never had the chance to see it. I know it's probably dated as hell and is like any 80s PI show, but I was always curious about it as I got older. Robert Urich was always likeable to me. I don't know maybe I'll check it out on Tubi and see how horrible the commercial load is.

Re: Tubi -- ad supported streaming service

I went looking for Eight is Enough when Adam Rich died so I might at least sample that again. I watched all of Spenser for at least the first few seasons. I also liked Kate Jackson on Charlie's Angels as a kid but never watched Scarecrow so who knows... Probably won't really have time to watch any of this.

The Nevers thing is beyond irritating, but I guess I'll just have to buy it when it gets reasonably priced on Vudu, assuming they put it for sale.

The old TNT show Southland is also on Tubi. It was on HBO Max, but I guess it was part of the cuts.

If anything, WBD sold off stuff that's been out for years that probably most aren't watching anymore.

Re: Tubi -- ad supported streaming service

Are we not going to talk about the nightmare fuel Superbowl rabbit hole ads, or the "grandpa yelling at the kids for touching the remote" ad?

Guess they had some money to burn. I wonder how profitable this is for them.

The Super Bowl was on Fox, and Fox owns Tubi - they probably had some spots to fill.

That said, they're claiming Tubi has 61m+ monthly active users, which sounds sus but

I haven't seen the ads but my co-worker who was watching the Super Bowl had have heard of the service and was impressed with the commercials.

That's awesome! He is going to 'the bins' because he's finding content previously unknown!
