“We are not short-form, we are Quibi, ” said Whitman, who is leading the service as CEO. “You leave the house every morning with a little TV in your pocket. It’s called your smart phone, ” she explained. .


“During the day, you have these in-between moments. 10 minutes here, 15 minutes there, where you want to see something great.” Katzenberg and Whitman first unveiled Quibi in August, and revealed the branding of the service in October.
