    The new streaming platform Quibi has officially gone live. Short for “quick bites”, Quibi presents movies, news, and unscripted content in episodes of ten minutes or less.

    Quibi comes from former Disney and DreamWorks super-producer Jeffrey Katzenberg, and it’s designed to be watched on your phone. Upon the platform’s initial announcement in 2018, CEO Meg Whittman said, “During the day, you have these in-between moments. Ten minutes here, 15 minutes there, where you want to see something great.” Of course, the timing could be better. Quibi is pushing mobile streaming for people on the go at a time when the world’s population is stuck on their couches. That might be one of the reasons they’re offering a 90-day free trial. Afterwards, Quibi will cost $4.99 with ads and $7.99 without.

    The content is broken down into three rough categories; Movies in Chapters, Unscripted Series and Docs, and Daily Essentials. Movies in Chapters are exactly what they sound like, and include Will Forte and Kaitlin Olson’s FlippedSam Raimi’s 50 States of Fright, and the The Fugitive starring Kiefer Sutherland and Boyd Holbrook. Unscripted Series and Docs is the big umbrella for for educational programming and reality television, such as Chance the Rapper’s Punk’d reboot. Finally, Daily Essentials covers everything from world news to sports and celebrity gossip. Check out the full lineup below.
