Quibi plans to shut down its app on or around Dec. 1, marking the official end date of the short-lived streaming video service that announced its shutdown Wednesday after failing to gain traction in its brief, six-month lifespan.  

In an end-of-service announcement posted Thursday on the customer support section of Quibi’s website, which otherwise directs users to sign up for free trials and watch trailers for Quibi programming, the company said it would cease streaming in about a month’s time, but that the fate of most of its shows is still uncertain.
