New Streaming Service Quibi Is Launching This Month & You Can Try It Free For 90 Days
Add another subscription to your list! If you’re on the hunt for something new to watch, you’re in luck. The new Quibi streaming service is set to launch this month, and the app is offering a 90-day free trial to users for a limited time.
Over the past few months, you may have heard about Quibi—a mobile-only video service that’s set to launch on April 6. What sets this app apart from all the other major streamers (Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, etc.) is that all of its episodes are 10 minutes or less, making binge-watching a total breeze.
For weeks now, Quibi’s YouTube channel has been releasing trailers, giving users a look at what to expect from the new platform. Noteworthy titles include a Punk’d reboot starring Chance the Rapper, Survive featuring Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner, and Chrissy’s Court, a Judge Judy style series hosted by model Chrissy Teigen.
The streaming service is also showing some major love to Canada with a show called Most Dangerous Game, which was filmed throughout Ontario last year. The show stars Liam Hemsworth as Dodge Maynard, a man battling terminal illness who is desperate to make sure his pregnant wife will be taken care of after his passing.
In an email to Narcity, Quibi confirmed that they will be launching in Canada on April 6, meaning that Canadians will be able to enjoy these new and exciting short-form stories as of next Monday.
As far as pricing goes, CNET reports that the app starts at a base fee of $5/month for content with advertising. If you’re hoping to forego any ads, you’ll be paying $8/month. However, Quibi is offering a special deal to new users for a limited time that’s sure to save you some cash.
According to the app’s official website, if you download the app and sign up for Quibi when it launches, you’ll be eligible for a 90-day free trial. This gives you access to over 50 original shows at no cost to you for three months.
During this time, Bell Media’s Crave has also offered a 30-day free trial to Canadians who are new to the subscription service, so you have no shortage of options when it comes to at-home entertainment!
