The world's newest short-form video platform has finally arrived
On Sunday evening, Quibi
(literally short for 'quick videos') officially launched with 50 new shows now available for viewers. Per Tech Crunch
focuses on short videos that viewers can watch on their mobiles devices. Its content includes "movies in chapters" that are typically between 7-10 minutes, along with unscripted shows, documentaries and news/entertainment.
Quibi was built from the ground up by a couple of huge names in the business world. Long-time Hollywood executive Jeffrey Katzenberg founded the platform in 2018 and brought former eBay Chief Executive Officer Meg Whitman on as the company's CEO. Tech Crunch added that the platform hopes to release a total of 8,500 episodes across 175 different shows in the coming year.
TSN is proud to announce the launch of its first Quibi show: SportsCentre AM, a daily sports show led by Kayla Grey and Lindsay Hamilton. You can catch the duo, along with a star-studded list of Hollywood actors by downloading the platform now. Below is a look at some of the other content you can currently find:
