Fullscreen closing video platform

November 17, 2017

Online talent management firm Fullscreen is closing its subscription video platform which launched just last year.

The service rolled out vowing to produce “higher quality” programmes featuring popular YouTube and social media stars.

In a blog post, Fullscreen founder George Strompolos said: “When we set out to launch our own SVoD service, we knew it would be a huge challenge. We came to the conclusion that funding SVoD – a longer-term investment – was limiting our ability to invest in […] divisions that have more established scale and immediate impact.”

The service will close in January.
