What is Quibi?
Quibi is a new streaming service focused on offering bite-sized content exclusively on mobile. There are a ton of projects being planned for Quibi from Steven Spielberg, Guillermo del Toro, Sam Raimi, Idris Elba, Joe Jonas, Anna Kendrick, Lebron James, Zac Efron, Tina Fey, Ridley Scott, LIam Hemsworth, and many more.
Quibi plans to utilize the mobile phone in a way that will make content unavailble to watch on other devices. For example, Spieldberg's horror series, After Dark will only be available to view at night on mobile phones. Other shows will allow you to switch between portrait or landscape modes to gain a different perspective on videos.
Content will come in a variety of ways including: Movies in Chapters, Unscripted Shows (including Chrissy's Court with Chrissy Teigen and a Punk'd reboot with Chance the Rapper), Documentaries, and News. Some things on the way include a "Reno 911" revival and the return of Legends of the Hidden Temple. Polygon is even making a daily news show with Mike Mahardy for Quibi.
Here is a list of all of the projects coming to Quibi.
When the 90 day free trial ends, Quibi will be $4.99 with ads or $7.99 without ads.
