Mobile adds Quibi to growing list of customer perks

Mobile adds Quibi to growing list of customer perks”

Now, that same viewing evolution is happening in mobile. And how can you sign up for Quibi? The concern was whether Hollywood symbol Jeffrey Katzenberg and also Silicon Valley titan Meg Whitman can make a streaming solution created to be taken pleasure in on the move.

Another major feature of Quibi is called Turnstyle.

"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.

As millions of Americans are self-quarantining under stay-at-home orders and guidelines, Quibi may provide a much-needed distraction. "It comes on the scene with a totally different experience, made for mobile, quick to watch and as entertaining as anything you've ever seen".

And the Quibi lineup has something for everyone looking for a little entertainment. The program will feature Chrissy Teigen as a judge in a small claims court. And because of this, it will be showing movies in chapters. "Assassination of Gianni Versace" star Darren Criss leads "Royalties", a scripted comedy about songwriters.

At launch, there are 4 "lighthouse" initial films, separated right into smaller sized phases: a remake of The Most Dangerous Game (starring Liam Hemsworth and Christoph Waltz), Survive (with Sophie Turner and Corey Hawkins), Flipped (starring Will Forte, Kaitlin Olson, Arturo Castro, Eva Longoria, and Andy Garcia), and When the Streetlights Go On (without any one you have actually most likely become aware of). And of course, tons more.

Due to the mobile-focused nature of Quibi, the just tools you can use to watch it are mobile phones.

"Of course, Quibi and T-Mobile are working together - we're two mobile-centric disruptors committed to challenging the status quo and giving customers incredible experiences", said former T-Mobile CEO John Legere in a statement.

T-Mobile said customers with two or more voice lines at standard rates on its Magenta and One plans can get a subscription to Quibi at no added cost.

All you have to do is add Quibi to your account by visiting the official My T-Mobile website or opening the wireless service provider's iOS or Android app between April 6 and July 7.

Quibi is short for "quick bites", because the 10-minutes-or-less approach to episodes means that all of the platform's content is intended to be, well, a quick bite. And on April 7, five people who enter the T-Mobile Tuesdays sweepstakes will win a free Google Pixel 4 XL. T-Mobile's 5G network already covers more than one million square miles, 200 million people and more than 5,000 cities and towns across the US, and it's continuing to grow as the Un-carrier turns on more 5G cell sites.
