Yahoo Calls off its Screen Video Streaming Hub

Last Updated: 24 November, 2016

Yahoo has shut down Yahoo screen, the video hub which the company launched two years back. Its library brought several original and licensed contents under one roof. The screen streamed several shows right from the “Community” from Sony to the latest NFL live stream of the regular game series.

However, the contents in the screen library aren’t going anywhere; they will be moved to the company’s many digital magazines, Variety reports. Streamed concerts from Yahoo Screen’s Live Nation channel, for instance, can now be surrounded with content from Yahoo Music.

“At Yahoo, we’re constantly reviewing and iterating on our products as we strive to create the best user experience,” said a Yahoo rep Monday, who confirmed the brand was shuttered last week. “With that in mind, video content from Yahoo as well as our partners has been transitioned from Yahoo Screen to our Digital Magazine properties so users can discover complementary content in one place.”
