Steven Wahl and Chandler Nunnally love movies!

We've been hearing about the streaming service Quibi for about a year now. If you haven't been following as closely as we have, Quibi is a video streaming platform exclusively for mobile phones that is focusing on short-form video content, specifically shows less than 10 minutes long. Quibi has a ton of support from Hollywood with Steven Spielberg, Kevin Hart, and Jennifer Lopez all producing content. Well Quibi has finally launched and with everyone stuck at home this couldn't be a better time for a new video streaming service to come out. What do we think of Quibi and it's mobile phone exclusive gimmick? That's what we're talking about this week in Act 3.
