Endemol Shine International has partnered with Tubi, a division of Fox Entertainment, to bring culinary and reality competitions MasterChef and LEGO Masters to the ad-supported streaming service.

The two competition programs will join MasterChef Australia and MasterChef Canada on Tubi, with additional international formats slated to launch this fall. The free-streaming service is also home to  MasterChef Mexico as well as the UK and Australian versions of LEGO Masters.

Fox serves as the linear broadcast home to the U.S. adaptations of MasterChef and LEGO Masters.

MasterChef was created by Franc Roddam. The cooking series secured 53 productions across 35 markets in 2019, drawing in audiences in major markets including the UK, Brazil, Australia, Italy and Spain.

Family entertainment series LEGO Masters, meanwhile, has sold to eight markets across Europe, the U.S. and Australia. The format was created by Tuesday’s Child and the LEGO Group, with Endemol Shine Group serving as the exclusive distributor globally.

“Tubi viewers in the U.S. will soon enjoy instant access to the universally addictive MasterChef and LEGO Masters formats from around the world at absolutely no cost,” said Adam Lewinson, chief content officer of Tubi, in a statement.

Endemol Shine Group was acquired in July by Paris-headquartered Banijay, creating the world’s largest international content producer-distributor. The group now spans 22 territories and boasts more than 120 production companies worldwide, as well as a catalog of 88,000-plus hours of original programming across the non-scripted and scripted genres.

Headquartered in San Francisco, Tubi is currently available in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and Mexico.
