Verizon says it will shut down go90, its mobile video service, by the end of July. The service launched in 2015 as a free option for consuming video via mobile devices. The service never found a real audience. “Following the creation of Oath, go90 will be discontinued,” said Verizon in a statement provided to Reuters. “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.” Oath is Verizon’s content branch and encompasses apps and services from the former AOL and Yahoo brands. Verizon has begun informing its content providers about go90’s imminent closure and said it will return all rights back to its production partners.
