Vox: After 6 months and $1.8 billion, Quibi wants a new owner. That will be a hard sell.. “Quibi was supposed to be revolutionary: A video service that was supposed to fill the gap between YouTube and HBO by bringing short, ‘premium’ clips starring celebrities like Liam Hemsworth and Chrissy Teigen to your phone, for a price. But that was in the spring. Now, Quibi might be headed to a fire sale: Just six months after launching — and after raising $1.8 billion — Quibi has started looking for a buyer. It’s a stunning admission that the high-profile service hasn’t found enough traction to continue on its own.”
