Streaming service Quibi will finally allow viewers to watch its programming on televisions.
Launched on April 6, 2020, Quibi is a streaming service that delivers episodes of content in chunks of five to 10 minutes. Plans called for its content to be viewed exclusively on mobile phones, but in a New York Times profile, it was revealed that consumers will soon be able to watch Quibi programming on televisions. While Android users will have to wait a little longer for the feature, iPhone users can start watching on their TVs this week.
This adjustment to Quibi addresses one prominent complaint of the streaming platform, but others remain. For instance, negative buzz has surfaced about sluggish sales for Quibi. The services’ first-week download numbers were well below the figures seen by the likes of Disney+. And the Quibi app has fallen outside of the Top 100 Apps on Apple’s App Store a month after it first premiered.
While the streaming service has seen growing pains in its first month of existence, the added ability to watch its programming on televisions could make the future far brighter for Quibi.
Quibi is now available to download on all major mobile devices, with an ad-supported free subscription available for its first 90 days.
