Roku Is Adding Quibi

Roku is buying Quibi's TV shows and documentaries

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/08/roku-is-buying-quibis-tv-shows-and-documentaries.html

KEY POINTS
  • Roku announced Friday it has acquired Quibi's library of content, nearly three months after the short-form video streaming service shut down.
  • The companies did not disclose the financial terms of the deal.
  • Roku will make the Quibi content available for free on an ad-supported basis to all Roku users, starting this year.

Well, FINALLY some good news for all Roku users!  More new content-for most likely The Roku Channel's growing line up-coming soon to your favorite device.  CNBC reported on Roku's newest near future offering.

Looking forward to this becoming a reality real soon!

Re: Some Good News: Roku Is Adding More Content Via The Now Dead Quibi!

Yup, a real bargain at the loser's expense:

I guess most don't wish to think too much?  Doesn't matter very much as most here probably want to simply veg out in front of the tube.  Just like before all these goodies even existed!

Re: Roku Is Adding Quibi

These are appropriate for displaying the way to use some distinctive additives quickly, and get people on top of things on a few user additives. My tutorials are clearly aimed a chunk lower than even these.
