Streaming services are expected to get bigger with more players joining the race. One that is coming soon is Quibi but with a different take on streaming. Quibi is aimed at users who prefer short form videos and it will feature shows with episodes spanning less than ten minutes.

Quibi launches in April but the app is now available for Android and iOS. Interested users can also start pre-registering for Quibi. The company has already listed some shows that will arrive on launch and these include Survive featuring Sophie Turner, Most Dangerous Game with Liam Hemsworth and Nightgowns with Sasha Velour. Quibi will also bring back the old Nickelodeon show Legends of the Hidden Temple and Punk'd.
