Quibi Holdings LLC, the upstart streaming service designed for smartphones, plans to let customers watch its shows the old-fashioned way: on television screens.

The option may be available in less than six months, Chief Executive Officer Meg Whitman said in an interview on Bloomberg Television. Quibi shows, made with big-name talent like Steven Spielberg and Chance the Rapper, are currently only available on mobile phones and tablets. With viewers quarantined at home because of the coronavirus pandemic, many users complained about being limited to small screens.
