Quibi’s grounded content will be reborn on Roku starting May 20th
The Roku Channel is getting its first batch of Quibi shows on May 20th, Roku has announced. There’ll be 30 so-called “Roku Originals” available to stream initially, but Roku says it eventually plans to release all 75 of Quibi’s titles on its service.
