Quibi Mobile Streaming Service Launches Amid Coronavirus Pandemic, Available in India


Quibi, one of the most popular mobile app that promises to deliver “quick bites” of video entertainment, is finally here. The company has launched its streaming service at the time when the world is fighting against the novel coronavirus outbreak. While most of the countries advise its citizens to remain in their home to promote social distancing, Quibi, as the short-form video platform is launched at a good time for people to watch films or long television shows on big screens at home.

Quibi began streaming short-form comedies, dramas, and entertainment on Monday in an effort to win over audiences in the mobile age. Quibi chief technology officer Rob Post said the new service is still relevant in a pandemic-obsessed world.

“We’re doing our best to adjust to the world as it has changed in the past month,” Post told AFP. “Now, telling stories seems more important than ever.”

“The plus is that we are all streaming and binging as much content as we can possible get, so having more choice is not a bad thing,” Milanesi said.

“The negative side is the whole snacking while you are on the go — watching a quick video while commuting or waiting in line — is not something we are doing anymore.”

Last week, Quibi extended its two-week trial period to a 90-day offer. After that, a monthly subscription will cost $5 with ads or $8 (Rs. 669 in India) for an ad-free version. However, executives from the company promised that no more than 2.5 minutes of ads would be shown hourly.

Quibi app is now available on Play Store and App Store to download for free. So, if you haven’t installed it yet, go and install it from the platform depending upon your system.
