Comedy streaming service SeeSo is shutting down

.....At the start of 2016, NBC launched a standalone comedy streaming service called SeeSo, and now that experiment has come to an end. The service, which offered animated and live-action comedy for $3.99 a month, announced in a Facebook post today that it would be ending operations “later this year.”

The post is addressed to “SeeSo-ers”: “Though we will be departing, much of our comedy will live on — and some of your favorite Seeso Originals have already found a new home,” the post reads.

Earlier this week, Paste reported that SeeSo was selling some of its original series, like HarmonQuest, My Brother, My Brother and Me, and Hidden America with Jonah Ray, to the anime, sci-fi, and fantasy streaming service VRV. It’s not clear what’s happening with all of SeeSo’s shows, but today’s announcement post notes that the upcoming series There’s... Johnny! won’t be premiering this month as originally scheduled.

SeeSo, a niche service that struggled to compete with streaming giants like Amazon and Netflix, has been in trouble for a while. This past June, a “handful” of SeeSo employees were laid off, and Deadline reported that the company was reconsidering its business model.



SeeSO horny......no longer..........?!

I tried it out for their trial period but almost nothing had CC (or subtitles) so I cancelled.

Pity, too, as it had almost the full run of SNL (not just the first 5 years and the last 10) as well as Monty Python. Only place to see a few classic SNLs, including the Sir Patrick Stewart episode and the Shatner one.

Hopefully Monty Python will land on Netflix, Hulu, Acorn, or BritBox.
