Quibi App Downloads Top 830,000 After Three Days

After a sluggish start, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman’s ambitious, mobile-centric SVOD platform, Quibi, appears to be gaining consumer traction, generating 830,000 app downloads since its April 6 launch, according to new data from Sensor Tower.

Quibi, which stands for “quick bites,” is backed by $1.75 billion investor capital affording it with original short-form (no longer than 10 minutes) content from top producers such as Steven Spielberg and Guillermo del Toro, among others.

While the numbers appear promising, they’re also reflective of free 90-day trial periods and heavy cross promotions with T-Mobile and other carriers. As such, Quibi is reportedly not giving any official comment on the download numbers.

After a trial period, Quibi costs $4.99 per month with advertising; $7.99 for an ad-free subscription.
