While the world continues to adjust to the pandemic, it seems Quibi might be making some adjustments too. Quibi announced a certain change they are expecting to roll out that has interesting timing based on a certain interview given not that long ago. And with another week since the launch, more content comes to the service, but brings some very unexpected and early finishes to the first seasons of some shows. Outside of Quibi, Disney+ hits fifty million users and Apple TV+ jumps on the train of giving free viewing way of some of their original content. All this and more as Dustin and Tony discuss everything related to the streaming wars from the past week.
