Quibi is a star-packed, mobile-only streaming service with a 90-day free trial. It was founded by Jeffrey Katzenberg, the former chairman of Walt Disney Studios, and Meg Whitman is the CEO of this company.
Quibi – Quick bites. Big Stories.
This online streaming service app gained thousands of users in the first week. It was launched on April 6 in the US and Canada and had been creating brouhaha since. It has a backing of many Hollywood studios and famous stars. This service was launched in the middle of the pandemic with people, busy on their phones and laptops, having many movies and shows to watch.
Critics have argued that Quibi cannot be downloaded on the laptop and is exclusively available only on a mobile.

Chrissy Teigen, Lebron James, Dwayne Johnson, Jennifer Lopez, Zac Effron, Idris Elba, Liam Hemsworth, and a bazillion others have been recruited by Quibi to work on its programming.
After the 90-day free trial period, users who want to use Quibi can pay $4.99 per month for the ad-supported version or $7.99 per month for no ads. The CEO of Quibi believes that it will soon be one of the top streaming networks in the world.

If Quibi makes it into the hustling world of entertainment, then its biggest competitor would be YouTube, the pioneer of online short videos that now draws more than 2 billion viewers every month. It’ll also be competing with services like Disney Plus, Apple Tv Plus, Peacock, HBO Max, and established players like Netflix.
