Quibi: How & What to Watch


Youtube Quibi

Quibi, which will launch April 6, is a new mobile streaming service that features content (known as “quick bites”) that can be watched in ten minutes or less.

Designed for phones– not tablets or computers– the platform costs $4.99/month with ads, or $7.99 with no ads. (For a limited time, there will be a 90-day free trial.) Download Quibi here. Each quick bite will be released at a rate of one episode per day.

What’s available? Movies in chapters (meaning films broken up into small chapters), unscripted series (like reality shows and documentaries) and something called ‘daily essentials’ (pretty much the news. These are available daily– some at 6:30am ET, others at 12pm ET, and some at 6pm ET.) The plus-side of Quibi? All the content is high-caliber. And yes, there are some big-name celebs putting out shows.

The service is launching with 50 shows, and 125 are still coming. One of Quibi’s most exciting features is a rotational video called a “Turnstyle” that allows you to switch from landscape mode to portrait mode whenever you want; the content will change as your screen direction changes.

And while you can technically share a Quibi account with someone else, only one person will be able to watch at a time.
