Many yrs ago I wanted to fix that typo, people said, "no Joe, it makes you unique. "

The problem was EPICALLY bad timing.  Not that they could have seen COVID coming, though.

The only worthwhile content on Quibi are the new Reno 911 episodes and those are bundled as one easy to find torrent.

Honestly, had Reno 911 showed up on Hulu or CBS All Access or Peacock or anything that was less nakedly incompetent than Quibi, I would have at least signed up and watched it in a trial period. Quibi as a business, as a technology and as an expression of entertainment arts is something that I can only wish to die.

/I paid for SeeSo for however long there was SeeSo.
//Still torrented everything.
///Wanna watch Bajillion Dollar Properties or MBMBAM? I'm still seeding.

This was probably somewhat the case, metaphorically speaking.

CarnySaur: Actually, Quibi doesn't own any of the big-budget premium content for which it has shelled out upwards of $100,000 per minute. The company has seven-year licenses on its short-form series; after two years, content owners have the right to assemble the shows and distribute them elsewhere.

I hope it's sooner than two years.  There was some content I was interested in seeing.


So we agree . Good content potential just abysmally bad delivery method?
