    Quibi, the mobile streaming service launched amid great fanfare and nearly $2 billion in start-up capital by Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman, is officially shutting down.

    Deadline has learned that Katzenberg and CEO Whitman are about to have a call with investors this afternoon to explain their decision to wind down the short-form video service after little more than six months. They are exploring options including selling content or the entire service in the hopes that a buyer emerges.

    The process of bringing Quibi to a close is expect to take several months we hear with subscribers receiving notifications in the near future. A staff meeting with Katzenberg and Whitman is also scheduled for later today.
