In times of quarantine world, the proposal of Quibi is very attractive, and comes to compete with the big market as Netflix and Amazon.
It is a new streaming platform with series and movies up to 10 minutes in length designed for cellular phones, and are made by most tellers and interpreters of Hollywood directors.
Quibi, acronym of “quick bites” (snacks fast), was founded and is headed by industry veteran Jeffrey Katzenberg, chairman of Disney for ten years and founder of the studios of DreamWorks Animation.
The platform has 51 original productions ready to view on-demand and other 120 in different phases of production to premiere in the first year only.
The level of initial investment raised (1.750 billion dollars), the value of production ($6 million per hour of film) and the figures of the industry who work artistically with the platform give an indication of that Quibi this is not a project as marginal, but one of the big bets of the future.

The contents include movies into chapters of between seven and ten minutes (equivalent to a web series), series, documentaries or entertainment, and news programs of between five and six minutes.
