Some T-Mobile Customers Get Quibi For Free
T-Mobile customers with multiple active lines will be offered Quibi, the new mobile-first video service, featuring short-form original content, for free.
Short for ‘quick bites’ and led by Quibi founder Jeffrey Katzenberg and CEO Meg Whitman, Quibi breaks new ground in the entertainment space with original content designed specifically for your phone that you can watch in 10 minutes or less. And when Quibi launches on April 6, Un-carrier customers get Quibi included in their Magenta family plans thanks to an exclusive partnership between T-Mobile and Quibi.
Quibi features a patented technology called Turnstyle, which lets you move seamlessly between full screen portrait and full screen landscape at any time. Quibi will feature a new library of original content from Hollywood’s biggest stars including Jennifer Lopez, Chrissy Teigen, Chance the Rapper, Liam Hemsworth, Sophie Turner, Lena Waithe, Nicole Richie, Reese Witherspoon and more.
Quibi lineup has something for everyone looking for a little entertainment. Head to “Chrissy’s Court,” where TV personality Chrissy Teigen reigns supreme as the “judge” over small claims cases, while her mom maintains order in the courtroom. There are also movies, told in chapters, like “Survive” starring Sophie Turner and Corey Hawkins. Will Forte and Eva Longoria star in “Flipped,” a show about a clueless couple determined to be the next great home design celebrity duo.
T-Mobile says that customers with two or more voice lines at standard rates on Magenta and ONE plans with taxes and fees included — along with discounted First Responder, Military and Magenta Plus 55 plans — or small business customers with up to 12 lines will score a subscription to Quibi (regularly $4.99) included in their plan no added cost.
