After Hulu close down the loose model of its website online in 2016, lots of its movies moved over to Yahoo View, which persisted to circulate fresh episodes of community TV presentations at no cost. Now, Yahoo’s website online additionally seems to be shutting down. A message on the best of the Yahoo View homepage says it’ll be “decommissioned” on June 30.
We’ve reached out to each Yahoo and Hulu (whose branding seems all the way through the Yahoo View web page) for remark and can replace if we pay attention again. Within the interim, we will speculate as to why Yahoo View may well be shutting down: Verizon, which got Yahoo for $four.48 billion in 2017, is backing clear of the virtual media industry to concentrate on wi-fi carrier. In the meantime, Hulu has grown to greater than 28 million subscribers, with a wholesome advert industry besides, and is a key a part of Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming technique. Yahoo View by no means were given a lot consideration to start with, and neither Verizon nor Hulu have just right causes to stay it alive now.
As for whoever used to be the usage of Yahoo View, they’ll most likely must make do with visiting the person websites and apps for ABC, NBC, and Fox, the place lots of the similar fresh episodes stay to be had at no cost.
