What is QUIBI?

It is

an app that is downloaded in the cell

and for a monthly membership allows you to view

series whose episodes last for a maximum of ten minutes

each and every one.

Who is behind the app?

The famous producer Jeffrey Katzenberg (exDisney and DreamWorks) and Meg Whitman (who was CEO of eBay) managed investments by 1750 million dollars to develop the project and produce original content.

How many series you have in your catalog?

The launch was today with 50 series and

the first year will be 175 new

.

How do you renew your content? Each day there are three hours of additional content.

As the episodes last between 6 and 10 minutes, are at least 20 new chapters each day.

How much does it cost? It costs $ 8 (without advertising) and 5 dollars (with short notices)

per month. Anyway,

you can try it without charge for 90 days

and, if the proposal does not satisfy, to unsubscribe without having paid a penny.

What technical features does it have?

The design of the app and the quality of the

streaming

are optimal. All the contents are subtitled in Spanish. The series can be viewed with the cell in vertical or in horizontal, and in some cases it is possible to change the point of view of the characters in different scenes. As with other services, the episodes can be downloaded to view them without wifi or without 4G at any time.

What stars have shows on Quibi?

Idris Elba, Chance the Rapper, Chrissy Teigen, Liam Hemsworth, Queen Latifah

and

Christoph Waltz

already part of the catalog service. Jennifer Lopez and Reese Witherspoon producing different series. Guillermo del Toro and Steven Spielberg are some of the directors devoted that are working on projects for Quibi.

What are the main contents? Quibi has fiction series, documentaries, talk shows, reality shows, news, contests and other entertainments

always with short episodes (what is important, therefore, is the concept, the impact or the effectiveness of a

sketch

). Here we propose

a tour of 20 of the titles

already available or soon to launch.

  • Most Dangerous Game.

    Dodge

    (Liam Hemsworth)

    is an entrepreneur and athlete who is about to be a father (his wife is Sarah Gadon). Practically in bankruptcy, to make matters worse you are diagnosed with a terminal cancer, and, in the midst of this desperate situation, is summoned by a

    broker

    (Christoph Waltz) who offers to become part of a manhunt throughout the city of Detroit (with a few millionaires as hunters, and he as a dam, of course). The initial reaction, of course, is rejection, but anyway his days are already numbered, and the participation could leave a fortune to your family as you achieve to survive for a long time (the reward reaches 24.5 million dollars to resist 24 hours). A haunting, fable, dystopian against the cynicism of wild capitalism.
