Seeso, the ad-free streaming comedy channel from NBCUniversal Digital Enterprises, is shutting down.

seeso 11 august 2017The service launched in January 2016 at $3.99 per month, and was available online and on iOS and Android platforms. Subscribers had access to more than 2,000 hours of original content, as well as episodes and clips that leaned on company properties.

“We’re writing to let you know that later this year, Seeso will be shutting its comedy doors,” the company said in an announcement. “Though we will be departing, much of our comedy will live on - and some of your favourite Seeso Originals have already found a new home.”

Shows HarmonQuest, My Brother, My Brother and Me, Hidden America with Jonah Ray and The Cyanide and Happiness Show have moved to VRV, it said, and There's ... Johnny! won't premiere this month as planned.

Earlier this year it was estimated to have built a subscriber base in the low six figures, but also began to move away from original programming and toward more authenticated access to traditional NBC programmes, including all episodes of Saturday Night Live.

Evan Shapiro, who launched Seeso, left his role as executive VP of NBCUniversal Digital Enterprises earlier in the year.
