Good news today for fans that enjoyed Quibi’s horror programming as Roku purchased exclusive distribution rights from the short-lived streamer, according to a report on Deadline. The programming will be free on Roku later this year.
“It’s the same availability of content, the same presentation of content,” Roku VP of Programming Rob Holmes said. “But as we spent a bunch of time with it, it really works, but they’re just TV episodes. I think their premise was, you have 10 minutes, you would watch it. Our view is, this is TV, someone’s going to spend half an hour or an hour or two hours watching it because it’s just that compelling.” He added, “You don’t usually see content like this for free in streaming.”
“The most creative and imaginative minds in Hollywood created groundbreaking content for Quibi that exceeded our expectations,” said Quibi Founder Jeffrey Katzenberg. “We are thrilled that these stories, from the surreal to the sublime, have found a new home on The Roku Channel.”
