Jeffrey Katzenberg Blames Pandemic for Quibi’s Rough Start



source

Film producer Katzenberg founded Quibi, a "short-form streaming app" no one seems to care about.

“I attribute everything that has gone wrong to coronavirus. Everything. But we own it.”

“My hope, my belief was that there would still be many in-between moments while sheltering in place. There are still those moments, but it’s not the same. It’s out of sync.”

costumers are confused about being unable to stream the content on their televisions

“There are a whole bunch of things we have now seen in the product that we thought we got mostly right, but now that there are hundreds of people on there using it, you go, ‘Uh-oh, we didn’t see that.’”

why did TikTok make the similar concept work?

“That’s like comparing apples to submarines. I don’t know what people are expecting from us. What did Netflix look like 30 days after it launched? To tell me about a company that has a billion users and is doing great in the past six weeks, I’m happy for them, but what the hell does it have to do with me?”
