Everything Coming to Quibi in April 2020

We’re living in an uncertain world, but there’s at least one certainty that we can’t avoid: Quibi is coming. Will the new mobile-only streaming platform and its mountain of original content change the way we think about entertainment forever, land with a dud, or something in between? We’ll find out very soon, because the service is set to launch in just over a week. (You can get a free 90-day trial, but only if you sign up before launch.) And now there’s a list of every single thing they’ll be releasing in the month of April, including “movies in chapters” like Most Dangerous Game and 50 States of Fright, unscripted shows like Chrissy’s Court and Murder House Flip, and much more.

When Quibi debuts on April 6, 2020, it will cost $ 4.99 with ads and $ 7.99 without ads, and will divide its content into three categories:

  • Movies in Chapters: Big stories told in chapters that are 7 to 10 minutes in length.
  • Unscripted and Docs: This episodic category is food, fashion, travel, animals, cars, builds, music, sports, comedy, talk, variety, documentary and more. All with episodes in 10 minutes or less.
  • Daily Essentials: Curated daily into 5-6 minute quick bites of news, entertainment and inspiration. Quibi’s Daily Essentials will quickly give viewers everything they need to know – and why it matters.

We previously knew about many of the titles it would be offering on launch day, but now we have a full list of every single piece of Quibi content that will be available in the entire month of April, so let’s break it all down below.
