Do you use the FitzyTV app to DVR your streamed content? You may have noticed that the app is no longer available on the Amazon App Store or the Google Play Store as of last year. Now FitzyTV has announced that they will be removing the ability to access TV Everywhere functionality from their services due to a “legal dispute” with Adobe.
Here is a statement from FitzyTV about the changes announced today:
The service recently became popular with cord cutters as it let you DVR programs from streaming services you paid for even if that service didn’t offer a DVR. Now though Adobe says that their use of Adobe tech is not legal and FitzyTV is agreeing to remove that functionality limiting the app.
For now, we will have to wait and see what happens with the legal battle between FitzyTV and Adobe who manages the logins for many of these services. Will Adobe be happy with this change or will they push FitzyTV for more. Cord Cutters News will post updates as we learn more.
