Many people will now know about the fact that Quibi closed down in December 2020, but the good news is that we don’t have to say goodbye to its content.
Whether people missed out on Chrissy’s Court, Murder House Flip, Punk’d or Most Dangerous Game, the shows are moving to another platform.
Roku has now bought the contents of Quibi’s content library, and the titles will now stream for free on the ad-supported platform.
It has been estimated that the financial deal resulted in Roku spending under $100 million on the shows, which may come as a surprise to some.
This is because founders Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman raised $1.75 billion for the venture and spent around $100,000 a minute on the shows.
