Quibi, the mobile-focused streaming service from Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman, launches on Monday, April 6. Boasting what the service calls “movies in chapters,” unscripted/documentary series, and a lineup of “Daily Essentials,” Quibi takes aim at consumers who want on-the-go — or stay-at-home, as the case may be — entertainment on their phones.

Below, we take a look at some of Quibi’s series and movies from its first month, noting some of the top-shelf entertainers and creators like Liam Hemsworth and Christoph Waltz in action-thriller Most Dangerous Game, Sophie Turner in SurviveLeBron James in I PromiseChrissy Teigen in Chrissy’s CourtLaurence Fishburne in #FreeRayshawn from executive producer Antoine FuquaSam Raimi with his urban-legend series 50 States of FrightIdris Elba and Ken Block in Elba v BlockAnna Kendrick in Dummy, music star Joe Jonas in travel series Cup of Joe, Reese Witherspoon narrating nature series Fierce Queens, and many more. Rotten Tomatoes even gets in on the action with our Fresh Daily show, with recommendations for the best television, streaming, and movies to watch every day.

As well as its “quick bites” approach – nothing on the service runs longer than 10 minutes – Quibi allows users to watch its programs in dual formats. You can watch shows vertical or horizontal for different viewing experiences, technology that has allowed some filmmakers to get super creative – in certain shows and films, one mode of viewing gives you a completely different take on the story or takes you into a different character’s perspective.

Read on to find out which titles are coming this month and get linked to more info, and visit Quibi.com to sign up for the service’s free 90-day trial.
