Well, it looks like Verizon may be about to shut down their free streaming service Go90 next month. This comes as Verizon VEO Tim Armstrong suggested that Go90 may be soon dismantled back in February. Now we know that Verizon will shut down go90 in July 2018.
“Following the creation of Oath, go90 will be discontinued,” Verizon told Reuters in a statement. “Verizon will focus on building its digital-first brands at scale in sports, finance, news and entertainment for today’s mobile consumers and tomorrow’s 5G applications.”
Now that is not to say the content will just vanish. From the looks of it, Verizon will be pushing the content over to their newly acquired Yahoo service to help build up Yahoo’s streaming service.
Recently Verizon has been pushing much of their content over to Yahoo. For example, they are now promoting their NFL deal as a Yahoo streaming deal first. It seems that Verizon once to build off of the brand and name recognition that Yahoo has that many Verizon properties do not have.
How exactly Verizon will disband Go90 or how quickly that will happen is still up in the air. For now, all we know is that it the Go90 brand will be gone in July 2018.
