Quibi in Talks to Finally Be Made Available on Roku, Amazon Fire TV

It’s taken a bit longer than a “quick bite” for Quibi to be made available on TV-connected platforms.

But when the pandemic hit, Quibi’s targeted demographic found themselves stuck at home and unable to play the mobile platform’s line-up of star-studde...
