Quibi is a brand new streaming platform for mobile devices. The name is short for “quick bites” which makes sense, as the platform features shows with episodes that are only 10 minutes or less. They’re offering a 90-day free trial, which is much longer than other streaming service trials, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime (30 days) or Apple TV+ or Hulu/Disney+ (7 days).
You may be wondering what is so different about this streaming service compared to all the others out there… Other than the fact that it specializes quick bite-sized programming, you can only watch its lineup of original movies and shows on a mobile device… which may seem like a bit of a downside if you’re used to streaming on your living room TV. Either way, the free trial is a whopping 90 days… so why not give it a spin?
