Quibi launched earlier this year to less-than-rave reviews. Creating video content exclusively for mobile consumption is an intriguing idea, but the execution left a lot to be desired. The app didn't even support Chromecasting until recently. Now the streaming service is teaming up with T-Mobile to offer free six month subscriptions. This isn't the first time T-Mobile has joined up with Quibi, but now that quarantine fever is setting in, maybe you'll actually take them up on it?
The streaming service Quibi launched in April after months of buildup and advertising, and while it wasn't exactly dead on arrival, it hasn't caught on with most viewers. The service is currently revamping its slate of shows, while also attempting to address some of its core complaints — like the complete inability to watch content on large screens, which is finally being addressed through Chromecast support.
We've got Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and myriad other streaming video options. Is there room for another competitor? Hollywood seems to think so, and that's why Quibi is launching today. Quibi focuses on quick episodes optimized for phones, and you can give it a shot for free.
