Lionsgate Bails on Comic-Con HQ 18 Months After Launch
Will license Comic-Con HQ content to other platforms instead.
Not every niche provider of streaming video on-demand is having the success that WWE Network is. In fact, Lionsgate is bailing on Comic-Con HQ, about 18 months after it launched the ad-free subscription video app, reports Variety in an exclusive. Instead of selling video subscriptions, Lionsgate will license current content to other platforms like Amazon Channels, Roku and tubiTV, which are ad-supported. According to Variety, apps for the channel have been removed from Google and Apple’s app stores, but consumers have not yet been notified.
