  • Quibi's Launch Lineup: Every Show and 'Movie in Chapters' Coming to the New Streaming Service

Apparently, it's some sort of short-clip show platform that is only on mobile and has lined up a bunch of big names to create content for it.

The only catch is that not all T-Mobile customers will get this deal.

Quibi has heavily touted Turnstyle - which automatically shifts video content on phones to horizontal or vertical mode, for optimal viewing - along with the service's initial lineup of 50 original shows and movies, featuring stars such as Sophie Turner and Liam Hemsworth. It features shows or clips that are 10 minutes or less, because that's an easily consumable amount of time or something.

Usually, Quibi subscriptions are offered at $4.99 per 30 days for its ad-supported plan or $7.99 monthly for its advert-free option.

Ahead of its launch on April 6, short-form streamer Quibi has announced a United States distribution deal with T-Mobile to give a year's free access to the service to qualifying customers.

T-Mobile announced on Thursday that its customers will be getting Quibi included with their account, similar to the "Netflix On Us" promotion that its been running for years.

Anyone interested in this Quibi thing?

A deal had previously been rumoured, but T-Mobile has confirmed a deal.

The Quibi deal for T-Mobile subscribers comes after the companies late a year ago announced a distribution partnership. "And since so many of us stay home now, Quibi has never been more needed".

"T-Mobile customers have always been ahead of the curve - streaming more data, watching more mobile video - so when we first heard about Quibi, we knew our customers would love it", remarked Mike Sievert, President and CEO of T-Mobile.

Plus, until April 3, T-Mobile customers can sign up in the T-Mobile Tuesdays app for Android or iOS for early access to three bonus episodes of the new Jennifer Lopez series, "Thanks a Million" when it launches on April 6 - that means customers get started with six episodes! "Enter the scene with an entirely different experience, made for mobile devices, quick to watch and as entertaining as anything you've ever seen".

"Quibi will deliver premium video content for millennials on a technology platform that is built exclusively for mobile, so a telecommunications partner like T-Mobile, with their broad coverage today and impressive 5G road map, is the flawless fit", said Quibi CEO Meg Whitman in a statement. For most customers, the video service will cost $4.99 per month with ads and $7.99 per month without. T-Mobile also notes that First Responder, Military and Magenta Plus 55 plans are eligible.
