After Quibi Finally Available To Cast To TV They Are Officially Shutting Down – A $2 Billion Dollar FAIL

Quibi, the streaming dumpster fire now has several cast to TV official options

We promised to say something when Quibi started supporting cast to TV in place of their “mobile-first” launch priority, so for those who have (very patiently!) waited, the time is now.

Now Quibi has launched on select smart TVs including Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Android TV. This just leaves out Roku and other smart TVs for the moment. This move is the latest in the short-form streaming service’s effort to reach more viewers amid dwindling performance.

Unfortunately that’s the good news. The bad news for Quibi fans is they are “winding down the service” and selling whatever they can.

Whitman reiterated her prior assertions that the company had adequate capital to continue operating for several more months. Instead, she said, “we made the difficult decision to wind down the business, return cash to our shareholders, and say goodbye to our talented colleagues with grace.“ She added, “We continue to believe that there is an attractive market for premium, short-form content. Over the coming months we will be working hard to find buyers for these valuable assets who can leverage them to their full potential.”

Quibi To Shut Down, Ending $2B Streaming Experiment – Update

Quibi does have some content that is worthwhile, so somebody will be interested — when the price goes low enough. I would have picked Apple as the most likely suitor, but apparently others have passed as well (see: Apple, WarnerMedia and Facebook Reportedly Say No To Buying Quibi).

It might sound like we’re dancing on their grave, but the truth is they took a bunch of investor cash and squandered it with an idiotic launch strategy. You don’t launch a streaming movie and TV show app without, well, widespread TV support (see: Quibi is the Cats of streaming services). Duh.

Investors have to be pissed. Quibi has burned through something like a billion dollars for this launch and have only a couple million ~750,000 subscribers to show for it.

Six months since launch, three of those months were offered free as incentive to join and then many bailed when they had to actually pay for the service (see: Less than 10% of Quibi FREE 90 day trials converted to paid subscribers). Yeah, it’s been a horrifically bad launch for this streaming service.

We’re sorry most for the 200+ employees who are losing their jobs. A lot of people are losing jobs out there in 2020 and that is the true tragedy in this story.

And now let the official Quibi Fire Sale begin. Who will buy their content? I still think Apple should jump in, as they have the barest content cupboards, but something tells me they won’t want to nibble on any Quibi leftovers. Netflix? They might do like what they did with YouTube Red (Cobra Kai!!!) and cherry pick some licenses for second seasons. Amazon? Same thing. HBO Max? Peacock? Hulu? CBS, er Paramount+? Let’s hear what you think below.

Apple, WarnerMedia and Facebook Reportedly Say No To Buying Quibi

How many subscribers, like us, canceled Quibi after the generous 90 day free trial? Guesses anyone?

Poor empty theater Quibi, showing their “quick bites” to people who aren’t hungry like Facebook, WarnerMedia and Apple. Or so the article below is saying.

The Information reported, “Over the past few weeks, Katzenberg has pitched several tech and entertainment executives about buying Quibi, only to be turned down. Among those he approached was Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of internet software and services, and WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar, according to people familiar with the situation. He and his partner in Quibi, former HP CEO Meg Whitman, also made formal presentations to executives at other tech companies, including Fidji Simo, head of the Facebook app, only to get rejected there as well, the people said.”

Quibi Reportedly Fails to Sell Assets to Apple, WarnerMedia, and Facebook

Of the three rejecting suitors, only the last one makes any kind of sense, but let’s take them one at a time.

WarnerMedia – Quibi would be of little help for HBO Max. Maybe some of their content would be worthwhile, but why pay premium for it? Wait for the fire sale. This is an easy pass.

Facebook? They are focused on VR right now and Quibi doesn’t have any VR content (at least to my knowledge). They also don’t seem to want to be in the streaming movie & TV space, so a Quibi acquisition makes less than zero sense.

Apple – this is one I’ve already mentioned could help by adding to their sparse library of content for AppleTV+. The problem, and just guessing here, is the price tag. Same as WarnerMedia, wait for the fire sale.

There are other issues that makes buying Quibi unattractive, like the infringement lawsuit for the flipscreen feature. It’s an cool feature for techie movie fans, but the vast majority of non-techie subscribers probably could care less.

Bottom line: Quibi is going to have to lower the price tag, find some way to increase their subscriber count (good luck!) and try again later.

Quibi Reportedly Exploring More Cash, Merger, Or Being Acquired

Meg Whitman promised cast to TV would “accelerate its road map” months ago …

Thought we wouldn’t be writing any more posts here about Quibi until they enabled a promised cast to TV option. To my knowledge, they still haven’t done that, but here we return again to the black sheep of the streaming family.

Their new plans, if true, might be more egregious than launching without a necessary basic streaming function.

Quibi launched April 6 as COVID-19 was sweeping across the U.S. and much of the world. It was aiming to bring high-end, Netflix-like programming to mobile phones as people were stuck in shelter at home mode. The Journal said Quibi is also considering raising additional cash or merging with a special purpose acquisition company, or SPAC, a popular financial vehicle of late.

Quibi Exploring Options, Including Potential Sale – Report – Deadline

The tech bubble burst on company after company essentially using this same playbook. Launching onto the scene with some minor “new” feature/service/site in tech, only to gain a lot of attention, then selling on that attention, finding the startup owner(s) moving onto other startups to commit the same offense again. The new owners of the purchased site/service would often later either bury the tech or resell it at a loss — sometimes a large one — years later.

The goal, therefore, from the original owners didn’t appear to be running a successful business (a lot of times the original service was “FREE” with zero idea of how it would actually make any money), it was to raise enough buzz and attention to sell to the highest bidder.

Is this all Quibi was about for Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman? A binge and purge tech exit plan in the streaming space? Or are they legitimately licking wounds of a specialty mobile streaming service few wanted to subscribe to (see: Less than 10% of Quibi FREE 90 day trials converted to paid subscribers)?

(We’ve suggested here in the past that AppleTV+ could be a viable suitor for buying Quibi to strip the creative content for its relatively empty cupboards service and dump the unnecessary tech)

What do you think is going on here? Do you even care? Is this the streaming space equivalent of slowing down to see an accident scene?

Less than 10% of Quibi FREE 90 day trials converted to paid subscribers

Quibi’s original launch on April 6 included a free 90-day trial — that’s over and 90% of those who checked it out — including us — didn’t convert to paid subscribers

I don’t have a source to link, but believe that the conversion from free trial to paid subscriber averages greater than 10%. Obviously it differs based on a number of factors and Quibi had a very long and generous free trial. The Amazon channel store usually offers 7-day or 30-day, Hulu trials are often 7-day or 30-day. I’ve never seen a 90-day free trial for a streaming service until Quibi.

Whatever the case, the numbers for Quibi are under 10% conversion (I saw 8% quoted in one article). We didn’t pay to renew, so we’re not part of the sub 10%.

Streaming service Quibi only managed to convert a little under 10 percent of its early wave of users into paying subscribers, says mobile analytics firm Sensor Tower. According to the firm’s new report on Quibi’s early growth, the short-form video platform signed up about 9 10,000 users in its first few days back in April. Of those users, only about 72,000 stuck around after the three-month free trial, indicating the app had about an 8 percent conversion rate.

Quibi reportedly lost 90 percent of early users after their free trials expired – The Verge

What could have improved Quibi’s conversion rate? The big one is the cast to TV feature (see: Quibi “accelerating” engineering roadmap for cast to TV feature, was “always” planned, says Whitman) that is on the ridiculously slow track to completion, but another would be the obvious: having better content. They spent so much money developing content, but there just aren’t any break-out popular shows.

Is it the quick bite 7-10 minute episodic length or is it the content at any length?

If you run a streaming service and don’t have movies and/or shows people want to watch, why should they pay? I think the reason the service continues to suck is because they miscalculated the features in their service and don’t have any killer shows. They have a few decent ones that we watched, but not that amazing “must-see” show to keep more people subscribed.

Look, Amazon Prime has had a lousy user interface since its inception, but they have the second most number of subscribers. One could argue that it’s because it’s a gimme for those who have a Prime subscription, but even Disney+ that came out less than a year ago has already amassed over 53 million subscribers. Quibi is lagging because they don’t have the content people want to see nor do they have any other business like Amazon to sweeten the deal.

Anybody reading currently have a paid Quibi subscription? What do you watch there? Any recommendations for those of us on the outside of the paywall?

Hell has frozen over, watched my first Quibi show

Thanks to Chromecast (see: Tired of Waiting For Roku, 7+ Year Customer Buys Chromecast Ultra to Stream HBO Max to TV), I’m finally able to see what’s under the hood at Quibi as part of their 90 day trial on our TV.

Previously, I’d refused strongly to watch anything on my phone (see: Quibi is the Cats of streaming services).

The door was never completely shut for me at Quibi, I would consider it only when it appeared on my TV. As it turns out, my motivation for getting Chromecast wasn’t Quibi, it is simply a benefactor for me wanting to be able to more easily cast to TV HBO Max, which is another Roku holdout.

The Stranger was my first complete Quibi TV movie broken into 13 episodes of 10 minutes or less runtime. It follows Claire, an Orbit driver (think Uber, Lyft) who encounters a psychotic passenger that instantly reminded me of the 80s classic The Hitcher starring the late Rutger Hauer (if you haven’t seen Hobo with a Shotgun, seek that craziness out).

I found the show itself somewhat interesting and entertaining (very good ending, including a solid modern cover version of “California Dreamin'”), but, again, painful to watch with 10 separate starts and restarts.

When an episode ends, you have to manually restart the next one, there (seems to be) no continuous play option on Quibi. It just goes to a stock Quibi screen waiting for another click from the user.

This intentional interruption in the watch flow is noticeable and dumb. If anybody reading knows how to turn on some sort of continuous play — perhaps in Quibi options — please let me know.

You’d just think an app that $1.8 billion invested in it would have gone through some sort of usability testing, but no such logic present here.


Have checked out a second Quibi show called Most Dangerous Game. Again, this one reminds me of other hunting human beings for sport like Jean Claude Van Damme in Hard Target (1993).

More recently just before the pandemic, The Hunt ⭐️⭐️ was in theaters and dealt with similar subject matter. My favorite story on this topic is Stephen King’s novel writing as Richard Bachman, The Running Man (recommended read). It was made into a movie, The Running Man ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ by Paul Michael Glaser starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Richard Dawson.

Back to the Quibi show? The main character is having rough times financially, so considering being hunted for a bunch of cash seems … not so crazy (yes, it still does). Add to it, however, that he’s sick, too … (still crazy).

This one has a lower Rotten Tomatoes review score than The Stranger, but the acting is better and the action ramps up once you get about 30 minutes in (3 episodes). The stake in the game are simple: every hour you survive the hunt more money is put in your account, if you make it 24 hours and still are alive, all the money is yours.

Anything on Quibi I should check out before our free trial runs out? Any Quibi shows that caught your interest and curiosity?

Tired of Waiting For Roku, 7+ Year Customer Buys Chromecast Ultra to Stream HBO Max to TV

The Stranger by Veena Sud is streaming to TV via Quibi thanks to Google Chromecast!

7+ years.

That’s a long time in the technology world to be using any service loyally, faithfully and happily. Alas, my satisfaction has waned lately thanks to the unnecessary tug-o-war between Roku and HBO Max (see: Spinning Yarns – Differing Viewpoints on Why HBO Max Not On Roku and Amazon Fire)

Today, I said goodbye to Roku for Google Chromecast. After tax this cost me $65 and some change. I could and would have bought a new Roku device if they could have offered the same streaming channels, but their inability to close a deal with channels I pay to subscribe to was enough to look elsewhere.

Recorded this video en route to Best Buy to purchase Chromecast Ultra

Think about that. You have a service that involves aggregating channels and you don’t have every channel you possibly can have on your service? Instead, as a customer I’m toted as advertising bait, but not important enough to give me all the channels? Sorry, that just rubs me all kinds of the wrong way.

Ok, so it’s not literally goodbye, as our beloved Roku 3 is still hooked up to the TV, but I’ve begun the process to combine the most streaming services onto a single streaming device. It’s just less complex to do it this way. My wife doesn’t want to switch between multiple devices to watch TV or movies, she doesn’t care. I’m going to have to download all the apps on her phone, which is a bit of an annoyance, but then she can click what she wants to watch on her phone and the cast button and watch away. Not sure how she’ll take to this process … but hey, it’s a work in progress.

The two lagging services I couldn’t cast to TV thanks to avarice (HBO Max + Roku) and stupidity (Quibi) are both available — right now — on Chromecast. Also, every other paid streaming service we currently subscribe to including: Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, DC Universe and Shudder. They all work on Chromecast.

Next month when Peacock goes full launch, they will support Chromecast, too. Bing!

Arnold-Commando would say, deadpanned, to Roku, “Remember, Sully, when I promised to kill you last? I lied.”

…part of the Chromecast’s appeal lies in its portability and ease of use; just plug in, connect to Wi-Fi, and you’ll be streaming Netflix, Spotify, HBO, Hulu, and more from your mobile device or PC to the TV in no time. Not to mention apps for music, working out, and catching up on sports.

20 Things You Didn’t Know Your Chromecast Could Do | PCMag

Speaking of Arnold-Terminator, will I be back to Roku? Maybe.

One sacrifice will be The Roku Channel. Not that I watched it very much, but that does not appear (somebody let me know in the comments if there is a workaround, please) available on Chromecast. I can live with switching over to Roku once in a blue moon to watch that.

How about the other free channels? Tubi, Pluto TV, Xumo? Yes, all available on Chromecast.

Another thing I need to get used to in the short term is using my Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ phone as a remote. I’ve covered this before as being functionally useful (see: How To Use Your Phone as a Roku Remote with Clickable Movie and TV links in Reelgood App).

One thing early on — and given this is really early on — that I like about Chromecast is I can set what I want to watch and then go do something else on my phone. I couldn’t do that while watching HBO Max as cast to TV option before (see: HBO Max to Roku Cast To TV Microsoft Windows Workaround), which was a bummer. So, if someone calls or need to text, it’s pause then unpause. If I want to take pictures with the phone, no problem with Chromecast.

So, while getting used to only using my phone as a remote will be something to work on — they do sell Google Chromecast remotes for people who absolutely must have a remote (I might be one of those, we’ll have to wait and see). More geeky readers can use HDMI-CEC on newer TVs with their existing remotes to control play and pause functionality. I haven’t dug into that yet, but for those interested here’s an article from Android Authority explaining on how to do it.

The thing is that muting and pausing is a little faster with a remote than using the phone. Especially if you keep your phone locked down after X seconds from someone tampering with it or potential pocket dialing and texting.

Speed is everything when you have an incoming call. You’d think that there would be an app that auto-pauses upon receiving a phone call (is there? again, use the comments to let me know).

Anybody reading that already uses Chromecast? We’re newbies. Tips welcome and encouraged in comments below.

Does HBO Max or Quibi Get To Amazon Fire and Roku first?

Yes, Quibi screen mirroring is STILL disabled (6/16/2020) … why they haven’t unlocked this sooner is a mystery even Sherlock Holmes couldn’t solve

Mea culpa.

I wasn’t planning on writing about Quibi again (see: Quibi is the Cats of streaming services) until they allow cast to TV option, and reportedly they are still working on it, which sounds like they are trying to do by lock up a similar agreement as HBO Max.

Quibi’s negotiations with Amazon have “recently picked back up,” according to a source familiar with the discussions. With Roku, talks about bringing Quibi to the platform are said to be in very early stages; a source cautioned that Roku may walk away from a deal based on the revenue-sharing agreement proposed by Quibi. (A Quibi rep did not provide comment on its talks with Roku and Amazon by press time.)

Quibi in Talks to Bring Service to Roku, Amazon Fire TV – Variety

This got me thinking about who gets on Amazon Fire and Roku first? Just guessing, but I’m going with Quibi. WarnerMedia can last a lot longer on AT&T’s big dime than Quibi that seems to be heading toward the two minute mark holding their breath underwater.

Because who is first doesn’t matter, here’s some advice for both companies that does: get to both these platforms ASAP. While holding out, you’re just being stupid to your customers, both existing and potential new ones.

Hey, remember us, we keep the lights on.

Quibi Lawyers Protecting Name and Likeness from Podcast Fans

Two billion invested in Quibi to date has what in common with burning cash?

Yep, still waiting for cast to TV for Quibi.

Meanwhile, Quibi is still struggling to gain good press, while some of us that actually care can have a functional way to watch the content on the service. What’s taking their engineers so freaking long? It’s not like they’re climbing the Mount Everest of tech by hacking the cast TV blocking code inside Quibi’s innards.

Sigh. I hate it when IT departments drag their heels. But maybe it isn’t their fault, perhaps it’s somebody in management saying, “take your time on this, we want to see the way it is designed work”?

Whatever the reality, it’s not working.

And then there are problems that Quibi has which every big company with a weird name have: those that use that name without permission. Trademark infringement.

This is a rocky slope for companies: do we go after fans and insist they only use our silly, hard to spell name (Quiby, Quibee, Quibe, what is it?!) in a way that doesn’t confuse others thinking this is an “official” podcast? The legal world is pretty clear about precedents and if you do nothing then your legal claims weaken, but launch time is not the best time to threaten people that like what you’re doing and want to promote it for free.

“We’ve gotten messages from celebrities because they want to talk shit about Quibi,” Gibson said. “Everyone wants to shit on Quibi, but we’re the only ones who can do it because we don’t care about selling a show to them. Truly, the reason celebrities don’t want to be revealed is they still think, like, ‘Maybe I can sell a show to Quibi and make a little money off a sinking ship before the well runs dry.’” 

Quibi Sent These Podcasters A Cease-And-Desist, So Now They’re Out For Blood | HuffPost

Quibi isn’t technically or legally wrong in what they did to these podcasters. Frankly, using their name without permission is a bit obvious as being problematic, but the internet has a thieving side to it, sadly. We live in a cyberworld where asking for permission after the fact is more the norm than accepted practice.

Then there’s Bill Maher out there doing what he does best: skewering stupidity.

“You don’t have to tell me what Quibi is. I was sort of interested for a second but it passed,” said [Maher] of the short-form video service created by Jeffrey Katzenberg. “Let me guess, some assholes with MBAs raised a lot of money for an app that wastes teenagers’ time. My second guess just going by the name – a tiny country in the Middle East that lends money to Jared.”

Bill Maher Blasts Biden, Quibi And Americans
Who Are “Afraid Of Their Hands”

Quibi is trying to be more than an “app that wastes teenagers’ time” but that message is lost due to the obsoleted notion that you can control where people want to consume media.

Go ask the music industry how that works.

Eventually this is going to happen to movies. We’re going to cycle back around to doing something that people want to pay for. In music, that’s see artists/bands perform live. There is no way to consume that at home, they have to go out. For movies? Uh oh.

Quibi’s concept of we’re going to force you to watch it on your cell phone is so fundamentally flawed in 2020 that I’m shocked nobody raised their hand at the business table and said, “Um, we need to cast our content to televisions.” Maybe somebody internally did — or multiple people — only to be shut down by clueless senior management and executives.

We may never know. In the meantime, the clock is ticking on Quibi. Here’s some extremely helpful advice: get cast to TV functionality done and out here ASAP.

UPDATE 5/9/2020: Quibi’s co-founder Jeffery Katzenberg apologized to the podcast support team, Streamiverse:

“It was a mistake,” Katzenberg admits, but not without gently, professionally placing Quibi’s legal team under a quickly approaching bus. “It was lawyers doing what they believe they are supposed to do and protecting intellectual properties and copyrights and all of that stuff… It never made it to me until after the fact. The moment I heard it I went, ‘Oh my god, people doing what they thought was the right thing for what they thought were the right reasons.’ And it was a mistake, and I own it… It was not the way to manage or handle this.”

Quibi “accelerating” engineering roadmap for cast to TV feature, was “always” planned, says Whitman

Meg Whitman addresses the lack of cast to TV option in Quibi, it was “always planned” just not at launch

Didn’t expect to be talking about Quibi so soon here again, but when it seems those of us who were upset that there is no cast to TV option now have a definitive answer on the subject.

Meg Whitman was interviewed on CNBC and said it was always a planned feature to cast to TV, just not at launch. She also admitted that had they known about COVID-19 they would have launched with this feature.

Regardless of COVID-19 situation, I find it strange that this major feature wasn’t planned for the launch, but I guess that goes back to their hubris that it wasn’t a major feature. Um, yes it is!

She added that they’re working with the Quibi engineering team to accelerate the process of the cast to TV functionality. Will it arrive within the free 90 day trial period? Don’t know, but maybe when that feature launches they’ll give new subscribers — or returning subscribers — another free lunch.

Quibi is being sued for infringement by Eko for another phone-based feature: when you turn the phone it identifies the orientation (landscape or portrait) and reformats the video playing automatically.

Need to modify something else in my original post (see: Quibi is the Cats of streaming services)

When I outlined my frustration using Quibi, the Google Play store was showing “100,000+ downloads”, but that is just one download platform. According to Meg Whitman, they actually had 1.7 million downloads across all platforms in the first week.

New mobile streaming service Quibi saw 1.7 million downloads in its first week, CEO Meg Whitman said on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” Monday.

Meg Whitman says Quibi reached 1.7 million downloads in first week

Will update my earlier post comment that I was surprised they couldn’t amass at least 1 million downloads.

Google Play as of this update (4/13/2020 @ 9:53 AM PST GMT-8) shows “500,000+” downloads

Meg Whitman seemed very pleased with the first week release download numbers, citing it as “the most successful launch.” It doesn’t sound like they expected even this many downloads. She also spoke about their elation over how much the service was used the first week. They expected people would watch it more sporadically, but instead they are watching it for longer periods of time.

(gets back to my point that people don’t want to watch movies or TV in pre-selected 6-10 minute chunks, they want to use the pause/resume functionality that’s been around since, well, forever)

I’ll revisit Quibi when their cast to TV function is implemented.

Quibi is the Cats of streaming services

All too happy to cancel Quibi — this streaming service is definitely not for me

Quibi wasn’t created for my demographic.

Not sure what demographic wants movies and TV shows cut up into 6-10 minute chunks. If it’s yours, more power to you. I previewed it last week (see: Quibi Streaming Service for Phones Launches April 6 – Will You Check Out The 90 Day Free Trial?) and it was like a scene in A Quiet Place: nobody made noise over this service.

You know your service sucks when there is a 90-day free trial, billions have been invested, and can’t even get a million people to download. (as of this writing: Quibi launched on Monday and they have 100,000+ downloads on Google Play)

Me? It’s something I tried multiple times to get into and just can’t get even a little excited for two huge reasons:

  1. I don’t like the format — at all. The phone screen is too damn small — I have a Galaxy Note 10+ and, despite a gorgeous display, it’s not optimal for watching movies and TV shows. I don’t even like watching YouTube on it (I use the computer or watch on TV through Roku). My eyes suck. When you get older, some/most of yours probably will, too. What strikes me as odd are the founders are in their sixties. Do they like watching movies and TV shows on their phones? Just an awful, terrible format — in my opinion. If you love watching movies and TV on your phone, then maybe Quibi will work for you. It is just plain not functional for me. If I can’t watch it, then I can’t even get into the content.
  2. I don’t want to see movies and TV shows in chunks. I’m not someone who is going to try and watch an entertainment experience in 5-10 minutes waiting in line at the grocery store. I’d rather watch as much of a movie or TV show as I can see hit the — shock! — pause button, then — shock! — resume watching when I have more time. Whoever thinks this idea of watching movies and TV shows like this must have a real problem with patience. Learn what the pause button does. A terrible idea. Really, I don’t follow tech much any more, but at one time I followed tech ideas and Quibi in 2020 is one of the worst tech ideas I’ve ever seen executed at a time that nobody needs or wants it. Almost two billion dollars in financing? What are these people smoking?

Does Quibi have any good movie or TV shows on it? Honestly, with the two above reasons for trying and strongly hating it, I don’t care about the content.

They could have 5-star movies and TV shows on there and it’s all irrelevant if I can’t enjoy the format and way it is presented. It’s like going to a movie theater and the screen is out of focus.

Who is Quibi for?

But people who have time, don’t want to watch TV six minutes at a time. They certainly don’t want to watch it six minutes at a time while holding their phone in their hand. And they super, duper don’t want to watch TV six minutes at a time, while holding their phone in their hand, while they could be using that same phone to play Angry Birds while watching something on their actual TV (or computer.)

What is Quibi, and Why is it No Match For the Quarantine? | IndieWire

I’m trying to think of something this bad and only Cats comes to mind. Those awful CGI cats slinking around. That movie was an abomination. Is Quibi this bad for two billion dollars spent?

Yes. Somebody let me know when Quibi let’s us experience their movie and TV content on a bigger screen. I find it maddening that they don’t even allow screen mirroring from my phone. That tech has been around for a long time. Nope, we’re Quibi and forcing you to watch it the way we want!

Screw you, Quibi. Out.
