Quibi may be the home for short-form content, but when it launches on April 6, it’s entering the streaming wars with one of the largest libraries of original content.
The mobile streaming platform will have 51 new shows at launch, which are divided into three separate categories. True to its name, which stands for “quick bites,” all series will be less than 10 minutes in length.
Unscripted series and “Daily Essentials” are the focus of that lineup, including talk shows, entertainment and news programs like Punk’d, the reboot hosted by Chance the Rapper; Chrissy’s Court, a reality show hosted by model and TV personality Chrissy Teigen; and Murder House Flip, a home renovation show that takes on the country’s most infamous homes.
Four “Movies in Chapters” will launch with the service as well, which are feature-length stories “told in chapters that are seven to 10 minutes in length,” Quibi says. That includes Most Dangerous Game, which stars Liam Hemsworth and Christoph Waltz; Flipped, led by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Kaitlin Olson; and Survive, a book adaptation starring Sophie Turner.
Quibi announced a 90-day trial for those who sign up prior to launch. After the trial, Quibi will cost $4.99 with ads and $7.99 without.
