Roku has announced that it has aquired the rights to Quibi’s library of content. Quibi shut down last month despite spending millions on original content featuring well known stars. Quibi’s content will appear on the Roku Channel, which recently arrived on Fire TV devices, for free with ads later this year.
Roku says 75 shows and documentaries made by Quibi will be exclusively available on the Roku Channel. While Quibi’s short-form content was originally designed to be consumed on mobile devices through 10-minute episodes, it did eventually make it to TVs via native apps. Roku will be presenting the content in its original form and will not combine episodes into more traditional lengths.
