quibi debut

Quibi, the new streaming service that’s devoted to short-form content (or “quick bites,” if you will) had its big launch yesterday. The result? Not great! The nascent streaming service is offering users a 90-day free trial, but even that didn’t seem to be enough of an incentive for people to give it a shot. As a result, only 300,000 users downloaded the app. That’s not exactly a terrible number, but…it’s not very good, either.

Quibi! It’s here, folks, and it’s ready to change the streaming service game – or so it hopes. Quibi, which stands for “quick bites”, wants to be your go-to streaming service when you only have about 5 to 10 minutes to kill. Rather than offering traditional half-hour or hour-long content, Quibi gives viewers content either in quick five-minute bursts, or split up over a series of 5 to 10-minute parts that add up to a whole. The streaming service has just launched with a surprising amount of new content – but is any of it actually worth watching? Is this a service worth subscribing to?  Read More »

50 states of fright trailer new

We are in April now, which means the dawn of Quibi is almost upon us. The streaming service is devoted to short-form content – 5 to 10-minute episodes that you can quickly watch on your phone. Some of the programs Quibi has lined-up seem…odd, to say the least (there’s one show where chefs get shot in the face with food cannons). And then there are more traditional-sounding titles, like 50 States of FrightThis series, from executive producer Sam Raimi, explores urban legends from across the country. And you know what? It looks pretty darn creepy.

survive trailer

Quibi, the streaming service specializing in short-form content, is arriving next month, and none of us know what to make of it yet. The concept of “quick bite” content that you stream on your phone will likely appeal to some and horrify others. Then there’s the quality of that content – there are a lot of weird programs headed to the service. Stuff like Murder House Flip, which is exactly what it sounds like, and Dishmantled, a cooking show where chefs get shot in the face with food. But then there’s more traditional stuff, like Survive – a series that stars Sophie Turner. The Game of Thrones vet plays a suicidal woman who survives a plane crash, and then has to fight her way through the wilderness with the only other survivor, played by Corey Hawkins. Watch the Survive trailer below.

murder house flip trailer

Quibi, you beautiful tropical fish, you’ve done it. You’ve made a show too unique, too strange, and too irresistible. That show is Murder House Flip, and it’s exactly what it sounds like: a home improvement-style show where people try to fix up and sell houses that were once scenes of murder. It’s so ghoulish and darkly comedic that I have no choice but to watch every episode when it’s available. For now, I’ll settle for this trailer.

quibi free trial

The time of Quibi is almost at hand. The streaming service devoted to short-form content – or “quick bites”, if you will – is set to launch on April 6. And when Quibi arrives it will be bringing with it 50 shows – and that’s not even all of their content. There’s more to come, but unlike the launch of Apple TV+, Quibi has a whole slew of stuff ready from the jump. And in an effort to draw in subscribers, Quibi is offering 90-day free trials.

most dangerous game trailer

Among the slew of new platforms that enter the increasingly competitive streaming wars, Quibi is a big question mark. A mobile platform that offers its content in 10-minute bite-sized episodes? Surely it must be a joke, or at least, a very odd experiment. We have yet to see whether that experiment will pay off.

Quibi certainly has been throwing all kinds of money and high-profile names at its projects, with everyone from Steven Spielberg to Guillermo del Toro involved with the forthcoming streaming service. And judging by the new trailer for one of the first of its many original titles, the action thriller Most Dangerous Game starring Liam Hemsworth and Christoph Waltz, it has spared no expense for its shows. Watch the Most Dangerous Game trailer below.

What Is Quibi

What the hell is Quibi? You’ve probably heard a lot about this upcoming mobile streaming service because everyone and their mother seems to be getting a show on it. But with all the streaming services out there, what makes Quibi special? Well, it’s intended to be a mobile-only content provider that delivers high-quality bite-sized programming with episodes of shows running roughly 10 minutes or less. If that’s not a good enough explanation, the first Quibi Super Bowl spot might help. Watch it below. Read More »

just one drink quibi series

Did you watch Marriage Story and think, “Man, I would love a whole series that’s just Laura Dern with a drink in her hand giving sage advice and yelling about the patriarchy”? Quibi will take you up on that request. The mobile streaming platform, which will offer bite-sized pieces of content made to be consumed in 10 minutes or less, has tapped Dern to star in the forthcoming series Just One Drink, which will be penned by Oscar-nominated screenwriter and award-winning author Nick Hornby (Brooklyn, About a Boy). Dern will star as a bartender who serves a series of customers in one-act vignettes. And honestly, that sounds like the dream.
