The former California Governor Candidate, Meg Whitman, is launching a new streaming service called Quibi (Short for Quick Bites). Quibi has inked a new deal with T-Mobile as the exclusive wireless partner of QuiBi for its launch.
The T-Mobile deal will help QuiBi reach 80 million possible customers on the telecom companies network.
“Quibi will deliver premium video content for millennials on a technology platform that is built exclusively for mobile, so a telecommunications partner like T-Mobile, with their broad coverage today and impressive 5G roadmap, is the perfect fit,” Quibi CEO Meg Whitman said in a statement.
T-Mobile CEO John Legere added, “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. Quibi is completely re-imagining video content for a mobile-first world, and that’s what makes this such a strong partnership.”
