We’re taking a look at Quibi, a new streaming service set to debut in April. To analyze this new streaming service we’re bringing in a streaming fanatic from the YouTube channel reviews.org, Craig!
Simply put Quibi is a new streaming service (because we don’t have enough of those yet) that’s trying to make a name for itself in this saturated market.
Craig from Reviews.org:
"So Quibi is going to be really interesting. It's either going to be revolutionary and everyone is going to love it or it's going to crash and burn and nobody is going to watch it."
Quibi will make a name for itself by piggybacking off the idea that we, consumers of media, have short time spans and tend to watch a lot of things on our phones.
"It’s taking the quality we expect from Hollywood and making bite size segments of 6-10 minutes."
So what will these 6-10 minute segments look like and who will be in them? Well we get a sneak peak from Quibi in their ads for their service we see Chrissy Teigan, Keifer Sutherland, Liam Hemsworth, and loads of other A-listers.
Quibi, short for “quick bites”, is meant to be consumed on the go. Whether you’re on a train or sitting in the back of an Uber your 4-10 minute shows will keep you entertained.
Quibi obviously hopes their content will be for everyone, buuuttt Baby Boomers and Gen-Xer's we bet this is more geared for Millennials and our cute Gen-Y/Centennial siblings.
Quibi will be partnering with T-Mobile in April to offer their streaming service for free. This is considered a perk. T-Mobile also offers a free Netflix account with their most expensive plans (and you need to have 2 or more lines to qualify). There is no word yet on which plans T-Mobile will offer a free Quibi subscription, but T-Mobile's COO says he’s excited to offer it to all 60-some-million T-Mobile users so it’s quite possible it will be a free perk for everyone like what Disney Plus is for Verizon.
Now if you’re not with T-Mobile and don’t plan and switching to them in April you can get Quibi on your own by paying a monthly fee of $5 for streaming with ads and just add on a few dollars more each month to get ad-free streaming.
