What’s coming soon to Quibi in May?
James R | On 04, May 2020
Last month saw the surprise launch of Quibi in the UK. Short for “Quick Bites”, the streaming platform delivers programmes and films in short chunks of 5 to 10 minutes each, designed to be watched on mobile phones on the go. A month after its launch, though, the mobile-only platform has announced plans to backtrack on its signature proposition and introduce the ability to cast content to TVs – a sign of how challenging an environment it is for the on-the-move offering to win subscribers when they’re largely staying at home during the coronavirus lockdown.
Meanwhile, Quibi continues its strategy to release new series with star-studded casts, including the return of Reno 911! as a Quibi exclusive. Here’s what’s coming soon to Quibi in May – or see what was added to Quibi last month here.
