FOX, which expects to close the Tubi transaction before June 30, 2020, will finance the Tubi acquisition principally with the net proceeds from the completed sale of its stake in Roku Inc.

Tubi, which is currently available on more than 25 digital platforms in the United States, features over 20,000 titles and 56,000 hours of film and episodic television programming from over 250 content partners, including many of the major studios.
